I’m Exhausted. But We Got This.

I observed this on my Twitter feed and it struck a chord.  Caution: The subsequent is a pep chat and a total lotta personal impression.

At first I answered this way. Proper fatigued.

But then, soon after a handful of hours of pondering about it, and a 2 hour Sunday nap  – I additional this:

So yeah, I am exhausted. I am nervous. Pressured out. Not a very little frightened. SO Around Standardized Tests.  Oh and …..weirdly and at unanticipated moments, quietly freaked out. Not like a stress assault – but stress assault adjacent. 

BUT….It is really our position.

This could possibly not have been what we properly trained for or predicted but if not us, then who? Or whom? 

Let’s move it up – we obtained this! Entrance line staff, nurses, medical professionals, law enforcement, hearth, other public servants — they can not give up – and neither can we. C’mon — We can do this. I know that appears simplistic, but actually? What is the option? Moaning and groaning that we cannot do this  – isn’t going to remedy just about anything. It will only drag you down. But I get it, the concern is true. Now, Maryland has a really superior vaccination level — and I have to admit, the previous waitress…err server in me remembers to go with the “pretend it till you make it” mentality.  Gosh forbid this also sounds like Poisonous Positivity – I swear, in some cases I just am attempting to encourage myself. 

Then soon after the clouds – a vibrant location appears. A kid will say thank you and that they LOOOOOOOVED the guide. A 6th grade class I deal with when we really don’t have a sub – cheers as I appear in the doorway. My assistant brings me a cookie. But person oh person am I glad this just isn’t my initial calendar year educating. THAT would be a True challenge. God Bless and prayers to all you infant very first yr Teachers & Library Media Specialists. If you have queries or want to vent – you can often electronic mail me!

How am I coping?


SQUEE! I truly try not to be an author pesterer but I am an Elly Griffiths fangirl, so the actuality that she replied to my Tweet experienced me actually squeal IRL. 

What do you consider? Am I remaining way too Pollyanna in this article? Maybe since I’m retiring this yr I really feel like I can tie a knot and maintain on till June…..but our young ones Have to have us!

Make sure you do comment and notify me what you believe and really feel.
