A blog from a thirty-something year old broke teacher trying to figure out why her fridge doesn't have food in it and why her life isn't fabulous like the Kardashian girls.

Today was a Staff development day-TAKS info, discussion about test security, TELPAS information, lots of abbreviations. I had a doctor's appointment with Dr. Ray where I spent 10 minutes traveling to, 20 minutes waiting and less than 10 minutes for the actual doctor consultation. Give me my scripts and let me go already. I am now going down to two Neoral per week. Let's hope my skin doesn't react negatively. Tuesday will be worse-an assembly by a bunch of positive message body builders, choir practice for third and fourth grades and then a long night spent waiting for the performance by choir for the PTA meeting. I already want to not be there. How come I gotta go??? Did you just hear that...I whined like a dog. But I don't wanna go.
This is a place where I can rant about my life as a third grade teacher who continues to try to get her act together years after graduating college.
It is hard to find teaching blogs where the writer is not all rainbows and unicorns. Teaching is hard work and at times the kids are not fun and you don't feel like anything inspiring is happening in the classroom. It isn't that I don't love teaching, I can't imagine not doing it but I can't handle blogs where the writer never writes about the frustrations of teaching...or of the small paychecks that one receives on a monthly basis.
