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.

Thanksgiving Break...The End is Near
This has been a relaxing break, a week of nothing...no homework issues, no entering grades, no worrying about students...it was just spent on me. Today is the last day before Monday and why is that a normal work week goes so slow yet a week off goes by way too fast? The next coming weeks will be busy with Benchmark testing, Holiday parties and the hustle and bustle of the holdays. I hope the class does better then I expect on the Benchmark testing. I really hope they are just waiting to show me what they can really do.
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.
