I don’t really live there, but it sure feels like it lately. Last week, we had Literacy night from 6-8pm. I didn’t get home until 8:15ish. Some of my coworkers got home even later than that. Last night we had Parent Teacher Conferences. Again, I was at school past 8. Next week Friday, we are hosting the Jump Rope for Heart Dance for the kids. That’s going to be a long night for me. I usually go home on Fridays and just crash. I think a lot of teachers do. So as I grumbling about this I am also thankful for the district I work in. We really do a lot of extras for the students. That shows that we are a dedicated group of people. We want people to see the great work we are doing with their children and future community members. This couldn’t be done without the work we all put into it. So as much as I complain, I do look at the other side and realize how blessed I am.
