    ...You accidentally change the time on your clock when you set the alarm, and end up waking up at 4:45 instead of 5:45, and you don't notice it for an hour, when you look at the computer clock to see how much longer until you have to leave, and realize it's an hour and 15 minutes, not 15 minutes.

    Argggggg.

    Just think of the stuff you'll get done (not the sleep you missed), ha ha.

    I always get up at 4:45 ... happy to have another teacher in 4:45 ranks (even if it is just for today!)

    Another one who gets up at 4:30 each morning. Mostly it's for my own sanity, though.

    Yeah considering it was almost midnight before I went to bed, 4:45 was not good. The funny part though is that I was laying in bed playing a quick game on my DS before sleep, and I looked up and my clock said 12:45. I remember thinking, OMG, it's almost 1am! How long have I been playing DS??

    Now I realize it was only 11:45.

    and sorry everyone, I was not really part of the 4:30 club this morning - I went back to sleep for awhile. :)

    You are kidding me :lol: If I went to bed at midnight, I wouldn't be able to get up until at least 8:30. I need my 8 hours :p Do you do this every night or just during the school week?? And how old are you?? My old body needs recovery time every night :lol:

    Ah that sucks! I get up at 4:45 but I HAVE to be in bed by 9:00. I'm like an old person stuck in a 25 year old body.

    I had to get up at 7 yesterday for my interview, and I thought I was going to fall asleep in the car! I'm part of the 10am club... ;)

    I wouldn't mind joining the 7am club, though.

    I get up at around 4:30 each day (except weekends), so I am in bed around 8:30. Sometimes as early as 7:45, if I can get my 2-year-old asleep early. I have to leave my house by about 6:30 to get my daughter to my mom's house, and then head to work -- I like to get there around 7:00, because the required time of 7:30 is not enough time for me to get settled and ready for the day.

    I am definitely part of the early morning crew; I get up at 4:30 with dh to pack his lunch and make sure he has all that he needs for work. Very seldom do I go back to sleep. Most of the time I have my atoz time, check bank account, and email.

    Early morning club here. DH's alarm goes off at 4:30 and mine at 5:00. I used to get up with him but I got lazy! :DDS and I leave the house before 7:00 to getto school by 7:30.

    I go to sleep when I am sleepy, sometimes that is 8:00 sometimes it is midnight.

    Usually I go to bed around 10:00 and have to drag myself out of bed by 6:10, especially at the end of the year. On Thursday night I was up until 11:30 finishing up grades and wide awake at 5:30 the next morning. How does that happen? Less sleep = more awake?

    You know it's the end of the school year when . . . you really YELL at your whole class and are really ANGRY with them and tell them "You either ship up or shape out!"

    That was today. I have not yelled at the class all year. As you know from previous posts, I don't believe in yelling. However, a couple weeks ago they came at me as a mob and actually inflicted pain on me, innocently, but were behaving horribly. Since then I am on my guard. Today they all came at me at once with something VERY IMPORTANT to yell at me right at the start of the day. I flipped out!

    No, I am not apologizing either. I have cancelled all end of year field trips unless there is a drastic change, as in, do what I say the first time I say it and don't approach me without permission!!!

    ahhh . . .yes, that is how I felt this morning. I think the office all heard my screeching! Nobody has said anything. But I just felt like "so what? You don't like it, YOU come in here and teach the mob."
