Blog Neglect and My Stress

I apologize to all of my regular readers for neglecting The Write Gal lately.  I just wanted everyone to know that it is totally unintentional.  It is no exaggeration when I say that teaching is KICKING MY TAIL this semester.  This is my first year teaching so I am having to make up all lectures, assignments, tests, papers, etc. as I go along.  It is so hard and not to mention stressful!  Let’s add to it my other duties of Mom, cook, chauffeur, Bible Study leader, and there are so many others I temporarily blocked them out of my head.  And let’s not forget I am working on writing the script for the hospital fashion show again this year.  I totally feel like the cat in this picture.

Back to teaching…To all of the teachers out there I commend you!  I know enough about the subject matter that I could probably just wing it but I can’t do that because I would be doing a disservice to my students.  I am probably putting way too much stress on myself but I think I should give them the best education possible.  So that means I spend hours, and hours, and more hours preparing my lesson plans and lectures.  But honestly I don’t mind doing it because I really love my students and I absolutely love teaching!  I feel like that is what God has led me to do.  I actually was an Education major in college for a while but I switched my major to Journalism.  A big part of me has always wanted to teach and I am thrilled to have the chance. 

We are on Fall Break now and I am off until Thursday.  I definitely plan to get caught up on writing for my blog and reading the other blogs I enjoy.  So check back next week for some great posts.  Maybe I will get some much needed housework and laundry done too (now that sounds just mind-numbing exciting, don’t you think? ).

Happy Weekend Everybody!

    I’m glad you’re back. I know you are a wonderful teacher and your students are lucky to have you! That cat picture is hilarious. I think we’ve all been there!!!

    Brittain (my sister) is a 6th grade teacher, and she always talks about how stressful the beginning of the year is, especially when you’re doing something new! The fact that you’re stressed just shows you care! Enjoy the break!!

    I have been missing your posts on your blog and I think we have all felt like the picture of the cat more than one time in our lives. I know you’re giving more than 100% in your teaching assignments; enjoy your well deserved Fall break!
