Have you ever tried to get ahead of the game only to learn you forgot??
Let me explain myself. March and April are busy months for special education teachers. A ton of paperwork is required by the first of May. So not only do I have a ton of paperwork to do, I also teach 5 inclusion classes-which requires preparing for lessons and grading papers.
Today, I decided to get a jump start and begin. After getting home from school, I explained to my husband I had a lot of work to start on. No big deal-we will have sandwiches for dinner!! That was fine with me. I began grading papers before dinner. Now that this was finished, I started dinner-fast, quick dinner. After dinner, I headed back to my desk to begin. I felt pretty good about myself-getting a head start on the work-and why not??? it was raining outside so no better night to begin. I sat down and began on the first section-wrote two paragraphs and then began looking for other test scores--hmmm which pile are they in??? I searched my first book bag, not there-so I looked in the other book bag not there-so I did what we all should do---took a break and had a cup of McDonald's tea. I figured I would need the caffeine boast later on.
Kept searching and searching and searching and.....
all at once I remembered!!!!!
I had left the important scores on my desk at school!!!! So much on my plan of getting a head start. Right?? But now that I have had my tea-the night is still young!!!! VERY YOUNG for me.
I think I will finish the book I am reading and then who knows...Maybe do a little house cleaning....No not really!!
