I have been struggling this year, struggling to find a balance between my new babies at home and my "old life" here at school. Merging two worlds is much harder than I anticipated. I was formerly a stay-later, often leaving long after school was over. Now I can't do that. I don't want to do that. So, instead, I come early. But there's something about the early hours that is not conducive to productivity for me.
So I struggle with finding this new place, this new position as mommy merged with my old position of teacher.
In the meantime, chew on this: My school has gone through MORE THAN DOUBLE the amount of paper than in previous years. Paper. Perhaps this is directly correlated to the heavy-handed implementation of Professional Learning Community procedures and requirements.
