It was a cold week with snow and ice but I am happy that it will warm up this week! I ran twice this week compared to 5 last week. I hate running in the snow and I didn’t feel like going to the gym to run on the treadmill.
I know many of you have a separate Facebook page for running. Whatever you post on said page, do you repost /share it on your personal page? I am finally using my running page (The Running Teacher) and post here and there but am wondering if I should also repost/share on my personal page since I know not everyone follows The Running Teacher. I hope that made sense! 🙂
I knew snow was in the forecast but I was in denial. Monday morning I woke up and saw the snow. I still went out to run and did not make it far. The snow was coming down fast and it was hard to see. I ran 2.85 miles which I am surprised I made it that far.
I was supposed to be off that day but ended up going to work. Well, not exactly work because it was an Institute Day. We spent a few hours learning about Standard-Based Grading. So boring. Plus, we’ve been hearing about it for about 3-4 years so I am not sure when we will start implementing it. Waste of time.
Tuesday was parent/teacher conferences and was pleased that 12 out of 16 parents showed up. One of my coworkers had all 19 parents show up! I’ve never had all parents show up on parent/teacher conference. It was cold that day and even I did not want to go.
I went to IHOP for breakfast on Tuesday morning and this was the parking lot. Ugh!
My sister likes to complain that it is cold in San Antonio. Haha! We want 40 degrees in December.
The rest of the week went by fast. Well, I only worked for 3 days. Kids were fine Wednesday and Thursday but by Friday it was downhill. I was so angry at the end of the day. Not only do my kids talk a lot but sometimes they don’t want to do the most simple thing. We are reading “Tia Isa Wants a Car” in Spanish. They have a hard time understanding that book and I end up explaining EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE. Huh? The book is in Spanish. Why is it hard to understand? I asked a question and they are supposed to provide evidence and they don’t even want to look in their book. Same thing in Math. I asked them to work on a problem in their book and most just stared at me or the wall. They didn’t even write the equation in their book and I wrote it on the board!!!!
I left Friday feeling like failure. What am I doing wrong? Is it me? What more can I do?
Saturning morning was “warmer” and it felt good being out there.
My cats getting along. This photo makes me happy. 🙂
