Today at school began rough when one student came running into the classroom and wanted to hang out in the closet. I knew it was going to be a day. Which came true! It wasn't that the students weren't good...their behavior overall just wasn't what I expect.
And even reflecting over the day, I can't pinpoint when it began, but by the end of the day, it was like all of the behavior had just snowballed and became this huge headache that began at the base of my neck and then traveled all the way up around my head. And while this slice of life was a HUGE part of my day and not necessarily a slice...it was the biggest and hardest slice of my day.
These are the days that I question myself. I even found myself doubting my ability to make them stronger writers. I could even feel my eyes tearing up at one point. I cannot put a finger on it...I don't know what it was, but I was glad to have the day over so that tomorrow can be a better day! I can start fresh and new...hopefully the students will be ready to start again!
