|Slept until 4:00 a.m. (that’s sleeping in for this insomnia sufferer)|
|Left the house early enough to pick up a breakfast sandwich and iced coffee on the way to work||Discovered too late that my photocopies had a giant smudge on one line||Didn’t need to use those copies anyway|
|I had a much easier day than I anticipated||Nearly all of my students skipped school to prepare for an evening event||My Thursday class will be one day behind my Friday classes, but they are usually 1-2 days ahead, so it will all even out|
|The students who did come to school completed missing work and credit recovery courses|
|A colleague invited me to observe a class he’s struggling with & I have a lot of ideas to suggest||I lost my prep||I didn’t get a response to my email to HR but my principal said she fully supports me and will advocate for me|
|Had to work 3.5 hours late at that event most of my students skipped school to prepare for|
|Enjoyed eating a special treat but didn’t feel great afterwards|
|Got to see students all dressed up with their proud families|
|My husband, who doesn’t cook, made dinner! A bowl of chili was waiting for me when I got home||We ran out of oyster crackers, and I’ll have to go to the grocery store on Friday to get more–otherwise my son can’t eat chili||I can get the other things on my grocery list too|
|Connected with a colleague to brainstorm strategies for a student’s challenging behaviors||Stayed up until 10:30 p.m. texting her and strategizing|
And of course the biggest win of all: Thursday was Friday eve, and my spring break starts tomorrow!
My theme for Slice of Life 2022 is finding inspiration in the writing of others. Each day I plan to find my slice in someone else’s words or forms. Today’s idea comes from Sherri’s Win-Loss.
