Goal of the day: Documenting our torture - I got a lot of work done it yesterday! I can feel my blood pressure going down... going down... going down. I was actually able to sleep last night and that was such a good feeling.
Thought of the day: I like being ruthless. I really, really do. I started off the year all "peaches and cream," but I just can't get anything done in class like that. What is the world coming to? I'm becoming more "down to business" the longer I teach. Ugh.
It makes sense. Ever since I've been here, I've been in love with the teaching style of this ELA teacher down the hall. His room, his style, his organization, his setup... I want to steal all of it and I have ever since I've gotten here. It's all Harry Wong all the way.
At least I know what I'll be in 20 years. Ugh. And my poor Hippie Parents will be MORTIFIED!
