I feel like Im going crazy right now.. it's a feeling that isn't to foreign to me. Today is especially wierd because it's like the kids in my classes are purposely frustrating me. I don't think they take me seriously. I guess the grade book will have to prove them otherwise.
There are to many kids in todays society that are dumb and have more motivation to do well in school. It doesn't help that all the people that these kids look up to are equally as dumb and they know it. I love being a teacher but when I get no help from the parents or the media than it makes my job harder and not worth the chump change they pay us. Now I understand why teachers make a big deal about the amount of our paychecks vs. the miracles we are expected to perform in the classroom.
So this second job I have keeps me really busy and on my feet all day. I think I got about 30 hours of sleep in the last week. I haven't slept much because I've been trying to organize my apartment.. work a second job... and keep my sanity.
