We’re approaching the most wonderful time in the school year. That time we’ve been looking forward to ever since we walked through the doors back in August/September. Yup, that’s right, the end of the school year. That glorious time of the year when students and teachers alike come to the mutual, unspoken agreement that no one gives a f* anymore, so let’s let it all hang out.
Don’t pretend like you don’t know what I’m talking about. You know. Oh yes, you. know. A lot has happened this year. You’ve dealt with a lot this year. You’re feeling the weariness. The exhaustion. The effects of being beat down by administration, colleagues, parents and students. And ultimately, things… have… changed from the start of the school year to the end.
Let’s compare, shall we?

Golden. Exactly how I feel at this point of the year.
You nailed it!
TOO funny! With my math kids it ends up being – “go do corrections and have your neighbor check them” or “I’ll give you extra credit if you do the tests at the end of each chapter” and then I make kids that stay after for detention grade them 😉
OMG!! This is exactly what’s floating around in my brain!! Please get this crap over with!!!

Completely burst out laughing at “yeah toss those anywhere…go ahead and put the crayons in the glue bin…we’ll deal with it later”! So the end of the year, I have probably said those words exactly! Nice to know I’m not the only one. Thanks for the inside humor.
Awesome service you’re providing here! Everyone can use a good laugh.
