As I sit here waiting for the moment when the parents will arrive in my room for Curriculum Night (Open House), I am trying to think of moments that tickle me or things that will keep me alert and focused.
One moment from today:
Student came into the office and just stood there.
Secretary: What is it?
Secretary: What is it? You know you can't just come in here to hang out, right?
Student: I know. My stomach hurts.
Secretary: Well. Do you need to use the bathroom?
Student: I don't know.
Secretary: Well, go try and use the bathroom. Just sit there and see if there is a release. If you have to, go ahead and rub your knees and lean forward a bit to make it release more easily.
Only two and a half more hours, then a forty-five minute commute home to make this a 16-hour day from door step to door step. Hopefully, tonight, I get more than 5 hours of sleep.
