I have felt the pressure, also! I began writing the most recent entry at 11:40 last night. Tuesday evening, I was at school until 8:00 because I held a read-a-thon followed by the St. Augustine informational meeting. Yesterday, I went home and was simply exhausted. Yesterday and today were WONDERFUL days with the kids, though we have data meetings next week as well as math observations, so I am feeling the pressure. Of course, I continue to hear a lot about FCAT in a month. All in all, though, I think I am keeping my head above water! We're never alone when we're having "one of those weeks". - Victoria
I think it comes down to timing. It is definitely the part of the academic year where the heat is turned up from all directions. I just keep trying to focus on the students and let the other "stuff" go a bit. Thanks for reminding me I'm not alone.
