I am feeling super guilty for taking an illness day today. But after a week of that lady sitting her @$$ on the computer table without giving so much as a glance to the students, I just.couldn't.take.it.anymore!

I'm sad that I'm not with the kids, but my frustration with her was making me a really mean and b*tchy person and I started to see myself taking it out on the kids. :(

I'm not sick today, but I feel AWFUL.

Boo. :(

It's never good when you're called into the principal's office -- as a kid, or as a teacher.

I've officially been pinkslipped. Bummer, because I really thought I stood a chance. Fortunately at this point it's just a formality. Everything is still up in the air, the district hasn't decided yet how/if they will cut teachers, so at this point I will twiddle my thumbs until June 24th, when I receive final notice if I will be laid off.

Please pray for me. Or cross your fingers and your toes, if that's your thing.

Deep breaths...

This week is a bit of a tough one to get through. The deadline for the district to pass out pink slips is this Friday so it's a bit of a waiting game for me to get mine. On top of that, part of my work now includes working on the school budget and brainstorming ways to save money. We've already cut copies down to 200 per/teacher per/month (wtF!?) and figuring out ways to cut more drastically.

I'm trying so hard not to complain and to do the best I can. I know I should be grateful that I still have a job and that I'm still working, but I can't help but feel a huge pit in my stomach as I go to school each day. Sometimes it feels like I'm walking to my own funeral.
