Okay, so the last time I posted was the first day I was able to get back into my room and it was in shambles. And here we are two weeks later and not much has changed. Okay I guess it looks a little better, but I think I have really just shifted things from pile to pile and shuffled stuff around. It's not that I haven't been working my booty off, because I have, I've just been doing things that you can't see. Since I teach Prek I have to do a little thing called Home Visits. Which means I have to personally go to each and everyone of my little darlings homes and, well, visit, and have the parents fill out tons of paperwork. Which means I have to schedule these visits first, which sometimes means leaving message after message, dropping notes in the mail, and even visiting their home to set a up a time for a Home Visit. In a perfect world this could easily happen in a few days, but as we all know we don't live in a perfect world so it doesn't take a few days. It took two weeks to be exact. And since I teach Prek, we also do a little thing called Screenings, which means I have to schedule all those appointments for Screenings. And when do I set up those appointments for screenings? If you said at their Home Visit then you are correct. Soooooooooo, I am officially finished with my Home Visits, Screening Day was today and my room is still a complete disaster. And did I mention I am exhausted? And that I we have Prof. Development scheduled for tomorrow and two days next week? AND SCHOOL STARTS A WEEK FROM THIS MONDAY????? And I am scared to open the closet door in my classroom because there is so much junk stuffed in there and I am afraid that things will come flying at my head? And i haven't even started to think about writing any lesson plans, or getting things ready for orientation night??? And I can't find my camera, as it is lost somewhere in my classroom under one of those random piles of junk! Can you tell that I am starting to get stressed???? You know things are getting craaazaaay when your 5 year old tell you that you need to take a chill pill. lol So my plans for tomorrow are professional development meetings all morning, and then digging thru piles until I at least find my camera, as my own kids start school Monday and my baby starts kindergarten and I have to have that camera! And then maybe I can take a chill pill!
