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.

Poof of smoke
Did you see that poof of smoke that was in front of my classroom? It was me. I ran off with piles of papers left to grade and end of year checklists not checked off. I am done. I have never felt so drained at the end of the school year. My plans over this much needed break is spending a little bit of money (possibly on my latest obsession-balcony gardening) going to see the new Terminator movie and eating bbq at a friend's house. Have a great break!
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.
