to grade or not to grade?
i don't remember the end of the quarter being so hard! when i was in high school, the end of the quarter was stressful, but not that bad. now that i am the teacher, it is stressful. i made the mistake of giving two essay tests the last two days of the quarter. stupid, stupid, stupid! don't do that! anyway i am at the coffee shop trying to grade said tests, and i have completed one class. the problem is that it was my smaller class, i still have the 24 student one to go. with all that said, i love teaching. it is something that makes me smile when i think of all the students and how they affect my life. i hope i affect their lives positively too. this is also a shout out to my teacher friends, most of which will never see this post, but thanks anyway! to wenzel, holladay, ferraro, watkins, anderson, and short, you guys are awesome!
