"Elementary students are wiggling scholars in sneakers."
Unintended Cruel Joke
The ever-dedicated (ever-organized, ever-Type-A)
me stays late on Friday’s until the entire next week is set. Copies made, CCSS
accounted for, “I can” statements written, lesson plans printed, etc… It often
means I am the last one at school on a Friday. Sadly, I often get into my car
about 2 hours after school has ended.
But I can go home and fully relax because everything at
school is set. Mind=off.
This Friday was much the same, except that my hubs said he
had to stay late at work. BONUS! I can do all of the regular routine AND start
report cards. And not even feel guilty!
So the bell rings, I shoo the scholars off to start their
weekend, and get down to business. Imagine a duck… calm on the surface but
paddling like crazy underneath! I had my head about me, was totally focused,
and was in fifth-gear. The clock read
5:55 (triple nickels!). The amount of work accomplished in that time was
Then, the custodian (we’ll call him Greg~ mostly because
that’s his name), stopped in to let me know that the CLOCKS WERE ALREADY
SWITCHED BACK FOR DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME!!!
It was actually almost 7:00.
After laughing for 5 minutes straight… I hung my head low
and shuffled out of school. Hello weekend, I’m an hour late.
On the flip side, I still made it home before my hubby.
