I need your feedback.
So here is what has been going on. This week of training has been interesting to say the least. I kept hearing rumblings about our new schedules and teaching blocks. I thought my collegues had the information incorrect. They kept saying there was NO morning recess. I just didn't believe it. Then, today in black and white it was there. The kids and teachers will not get a fresh air break until almost noon for their lunch recess.
Okay, please tell me there is a school that opperatates like this and it works. I am so shocked on so many levels. As a teacher I don't think it is right to not give students a break in the morning. They need to get their yayas out and move. As an employee I also think it is asking too much to not get a break to use the bathroom. I take meds that inturn require me to use the bathroom. Now I'll have to arrange for someone to come in as I run to the "potty."
I know I chose this profession but really. If you read my blog you will know I no longer have my uterus since I had that wonderful surgery in June. I think how tough it would be to take care of business if I still had it and menstrated. (Sorry, TMI)
As always, I'll work through it but boy it is going to be tough.
I am also every so lucky (smirk) to have my prep at the end of the day. Get this, the recess they are given is at 2:00-2:15 and Specials are at 2:15. It doesn't make sense to me to not break up the day a little differently.
If any of you teach at a school where their is no recess until almost noon please let me know. Does it work? Are we nuts? Will I have a breakdown?
I picked the greatest week to start a new fitness program too. I start a fast next week and working out. Boy, I know who will try not to be cranky. A ray of sunshine I may not be next week but I have hope that I can get to know my students and enjoy building my classroom family.
Sorry there aren't any new items or freebies. I intend to work on some since I love the little mad money that is coming from it. I'm going to put it towards getting Joshua items I have on a wish list for him.
Okay, enough whhhaaaa whaaaaaing. I hope tomorrow is better and I can work with this schedule. If you made it this far thanks for listening.
