I had parent/ student/ teacher conferences today from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm this afternoon with a twenty minute break for lunch. Some of these interactions were easy. Others were rather intense. A few invigorating.
I’m emotionally exhausted.
Sometimes I wonder whether anyone (besides other teachers) really gets the fact that teachers work incredibly hard and with great compassion, dedication (to their students), and generosity of spirit– to support and challenge their students to grow as learners and to feel empowered to change the world.
Well, I would write more, but I have to prepare for tomorrow’s classes.
