I'll try to keep this as positive as I can as to not be accused of being a complainer or someone who seems unsatisfied. I thought I gave balanced accounts of what happens in my life, but since I don't, I'm going to make it my goal to list the positives FIRST and then the CHALLENGES!!
Positives first, I'm home with family and friends and that's most important this time of year. I am in charge of my own classroom again and that is important for my resume.
My mother is on the mend as she was having health issues that have now been conquered. I get to see my friends children grow up and see how much they've grown since I've been away,
I once again have a busier social calendar because my friends and I love going somewhere to get a drink!!
It's all a slow go, but I'm feeling like things may turn around in the next 6 months. Overall, i have the things that are most important and that's what counts most, especially during the holiday season.
Now onto the challenges: I have 35 kids in a classroom in a new school system that has no set curriculum yet. My students are 2 grade levels below and 3 of them CANT READ AT ALL, yes they are 9 and 10 years old.
My days are super long, our breaks are super short, and we only get paid once a month, which I am having very much difficulty with.
My car has issues and the neighborhood my mother lives is, LOOKS LIKE HELL. But hey, complaining is for the birds right?
So that's it, my update for now. There's more but I'm too tired to keep going. Besides, I'm trying to change my "Debbie Downer" ways.
Peace on earth ladies,
