Way to go TT!

Trash the negative and let the positive in. πŸ™‚

That is exciting to be able to help people to communicate...sound like a neat job!

Maybe the unhappiness will vanish as you get closer to what you want...your calling right now at this point in the journey.

I am glad to see you posting. It is a relief to know you are there. πŸ™‚

Yes that state guy is off our campus for good as of Friday unless we fail again. He still has to do the younger grades. Now I just have to wait for the principal's observation which won't be too bad because he has to tell me exactly when he's coming.

I have so much more energy now that my classroom and house are clean and organized. Do you think there is a relationship?

i had a good spring break and came back energized but am quickly using my upbeat attitude. I am uptight about work and everything. I really had being nervous and having tough kids. Oh well, just about 40 of school left this year.

TT, take it easy! Your organizing and cleaning must have helped. It awful to feel down and have things around you in a mess. You may try to keep doing what you did, a little, plus a more planning and even things that gave you motivation in the past. Maybe a decoration for the class, whatever. Remember to do it first and foremeost for yourself. You may find there is a lot of pleasure in the doing. But if youΒ΄re frustrated, donΒ΄t push it! Try to be in a neutral mode at least πŸ˜‰ Remember youΒ΄re not alone, other teachers have those tough kids. But yes, no one seems to rush to our aid. So just think how able and strong you are and how much mishap can just undo itself before your eyes. Trust your power and the one above which naturally flow to goodness. Sending you good vibes!

TT,

The feng shui book talks about how clutter and mess block the flow of energy.

May all the clean space let you have new energy! πŸ™‚

Good luck with the principal.

Did I tell you I cried at work the other day?

You are not alone. πŸ™‚

sorry it's a bummer to cry at work. that happened to me a few months ago.

I took care of a few behavior problems by calling a few parents. I hope it works.

Good luck to everyone.

TT,

Yes, it is good to have enforceable laws...otherwise you just end up angry and frustrated.

Don't do that or...um....you are in Big trouble.

So what?

Do that again and I am talking to your parents.

Big difference, right?

Yeah I finally got a mom in who is a big drug addict and hardly cares about her boy at all. but she told him that if he got in trouble again, she'd call his grandmother to come oveer and whip him infront of the whole school. Now that would be a teerrible thing to have happen and I will prevent it but at least he knows now that his mom knows I am having problems with him. I wish he could see me as a freind who can help him escape his situation by giving him an education instead of an emeny that makes him do what he doesn't want to do.... work and think and get a long with people.

I am nervous and upset about my job as ever. the list of open positions will be out next week I think and we get our letters about which grades the school tentatively wants us to teach next year. Ho hum. I am not sure I even want to teach anything again ever. but that's all can really do. Oh well 8 more weeks of school left. I have managed to keep my sanity more or less so far I guess I can do it for a few more weeks right?

I am actually proud of myself for maing through this year. the last time I felt this bad about teaching was about 10 years ago. I quit after 6 weeks and never went near a public school for about 5 years. I know that classes change year to year (last year I had such a lovely classs I cried when they went on to 5tyh grade and I still watch over them like a mother hen. I will cry again this year when they leave for middle school.

I have requested a younger grade next year and I am avidly seeking a bilingual job next year. That's what I have taught in the past and I have enjoyed it.

AG,
sharing time in primary. Don't you just love being primary. Even though I just play the piano I always get down and help the little onex during sharing time. and when they graduate and start passing the sacrament I feel as proud as a mother.

Yes. I gave this school a good year butI am ready to move onto something for me.
good luck to me.

Tiger--

I am so sorry that you are so frustrated with your teaching job this year. That really stinks. At least there are only 8 more weeks left for you. That should seem like a HUGE light at the end of the tunnel.

And not all places are like that or like the one where I teach at. There are some really good schools and some really great parents and students out there. And, sometimes, I think that the teachers in my building make it thirty more times difficult to teach also.

Anyway, summer break is coming soon. Hopefully there will be some positions worth looking into on that sheet so you can get a change.

Good luck. Keep me posted.

Thanks S2,
I hadn't realized how little time there is left. I've made it this far so I am sure I can go on. One big problems is budget cuts though. Some schools are not hiring right now and are waiting to see who leaves during the summer so i am not getting any interviews.

I amy be stuck here another year but I have requested a younger grade.

just rising up from a major anxiety attack attack. I mean off and on for a couple of days now. I hope I don't have to go back on Xanax.

We had a field trip to a park today. Kind of a reward for working hard on the state tests. Everyone had a good time including me!! I actually had a good time with my students.

Tiger T, I am sorry you are having the panic attacks. Hopefully your doctor will be able to talk to you and help explain what is going on and give you the medicine. Please know that I care too and am here if you need to talk.

Love, TS

Oh...we must have posted at the same time. Because I missed the anxiety attacks thing....shoot. Rub oils or lotions into your skin or massage your your own feet. I mean there has got to be a caring way to self sooth.

Love yourself as much as you can. You are a miracle of beauty and greatness. Don't forget what is inside you.

Where are you sweetie? I hope you are just taking some time to treat yourself nice so the panic attacks subside and you can regain that peace.
