Today was a busy day, but it’s about to get much, much better. First let me say that I love my students. Then, let me say they are about to GO AWAY for THREE SOLID DAYS. They’re going on a long field trip. I’m staying here at school. This means that I will have NO students for THREE SOLID DAYS.
Do we understand what this means, people? It means pure, unadulterated last.fm listening. It means I can leave school at any moment to go to the padaria for coffee or snacks. It means I can sit in the silence and peace of my classroom and not once be interrupted with questions. It will be, quite literally, heaven on Earth. I don’t have to do anything structured for the next three days except wake up and come to school. This is not to say I won’t do anything; there’s plenty to do here for preparing upcoming units. But whatever. Do we understand how happy the next three days are going to make me?! I imagine this might be how parents feel when they get to leave the kids at grandma’s.
But again, let me reiterate, I love my students.
