Day 78 of 180

… It took all the strength I had
Not to fall apart
Kept trying hard to mend
The pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high
I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love
I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive
I will survive
I will survive…


Day 2 post Winter break, and tomorrow is a full day of Professional Development.   Also, from tooooooooo warm weather (almost 70 on Christmas = wrong and bad) to feeling -6 when I woke up this morning, this is a rough day.  I was missing 8 of 16 kids this morning and had an observation from an outside consultant.

I posted those lyrics as a reminder that I can survive this.  There are so many things that are negative that I could focus on, but the truth is that the more I dwell, the more frustrated I get.  it’s no good.  So I’ll survive.  My students will survive.  Even if I’m frustrated with how things are being done here this year, it cannot stop my actual goal.

My actual goal is to educate students.  And as of Monday, I only have 100 days to do it!
