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.

Vday Party with Tons of Plates and No Food?
Our Valentine's Day party is tomorrow in the afternoon and I wonder what the kids will bring for food and drinks. My contribution will be my sparkling personality and various Valentine's themed worksheets. (I am dead broke, if you don't believe me check out my fridge and pantry.)So far their contribution are three packs of plates and napkins, two large bags of chips and one small bag of chips. No drinks. No other food. I am waiting for a last minute hail mary from my class. If not, we will have the world's worst Valentine's Day party. Fingers crossed for my friends to bring in the food.
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.
