Any teacher can tell you that the end of the semester is always a struggle – rushed deadlines, end of semester grades, students that can smell the winter break around the corner, in addition to all of your own at home stress and focus. Apparently, forcibly drugging children is considered “wrong” and “illegal” by some people, so we have to push through it.
Today, two of my students reminded me why I love my school (and the kids that I teach). Today, during lunch, two of my kiddos decorated my office with some holiday cheer! It gave me the extra shot to get through… at least the next 24 hours.
