So much has been on my mind lately that I'm not quite sure where I've been landing most often. I guess immediately is work. Will I be offered a contract for next school year? Will it be one I am pleased with and will be looking forward to? I've heard that next year's incoming students from the elementary school are a little tough to handle. This year was hard enough. Will I be able to stand up to parents while at the same time keeping them happy, therefore keeping my boss satisfied?
All of these questions run around in my mind as I realize we only have two weeks left of this school year. We are so close to being done, yet there is still so much to do. This week I am working on helping the students put together memory books. It's a nice way to review concepts, give the children something to take home, and to be honest, to kill a week that I won't have graded assignments. I will have plenty of time to grade the late assignments coming in and review the students' grades to make sure everything is set for report cards. All that will be left is to enter the final exam grade once I give a score to their projects.
To be honest, everything in my life right now seems to be up in the air. My health problems... Daniel's health challenges... our financial status for the summer... it all seems so heavy. I'm trying not to dwell on the negatives of any of this. I'm trying to remember that everything will be okay in the long run. Daniel and I are both working toward a more healthy body and mind, and the money always seems to work itself out in the end. Now I just need to figure out how I'm going to make it through eight weeks with two preteen daughters cooped up for the summer!
