Another month has gone by - the first testing chunk is over, but I can already feel the second one coming on up.
I am learning the significance of having time with friends during my first year of teaching. Walling myself up in a cave has done nothing positive for anyone - me, my students, or my friends and family. Yesterday I went pumpkin carving. Enough said. Tonight, I'm watching TV and passing out candy to cute trick or treaters that I do not need to entertain for more than 30 seconds. LOVE IT.
Cheers to all the teachers in the world who have made it to the end of October. It can only get better from here... right?
