I'm beginning to think that purposefully choosing the two week solo teaching event for student teachers (where the main teacher is out of the classroom for two weeks) during the last month of school is a kind of hazing for new teachers. Today my lovely students had a 10 ft chain of rubber bands that within a few seconds was strung across the room. After school they were throwing spit balls at another teacher's window.
Only one week of the solo left, and 2 1/2 weeks of student teaching
the end cannot come soon enough
(on working out note, my legs seem to be getting stronger and I'm starting to look forward to my gym time. I still don't love the elliptical, but I do love feeling healthy :) )
