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.

Uh...Is It Over Yet?
Everyone is done and my class is no exception. We had a writing test this week and unfortunately everything that we have talked about over the year has apparently flown out of their heads. I. Am. Happy. That was a complete sentence. That was a complete, detailed sentence. No, class that was a hot mess. How many days until summer?
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.
