My Life Right Now (all I want: breadsticks and a quiet classroom)

A quick summary of My Life Right Now:

The past 2 months since I posted: have been crazy.  I have had half a dozen students leave my class, half that number join my class (hellonicetomeetyouhere’sasyllabus) I was an assistant coach for the women’s soccer team (which had a grand total of 4 weeks of practice and 2 games, phew), I have given 2 miserable tests (not sure who hates those more – me or the kids), missed 2 days of school because of the stomach flu (and got hit on by the guy who took my pee test), I bought an absurd amount of coffee supplies for a fundraiser (it pays to buy in bulk, I will say), and drank lots of beer and hard cider (it is fall, after all). 443 more words
