While I love my job, teaching starts to wear on every teacher towards the end of the year. The students get squirrelly, parents start freaking about grades, the weather gets nice, and deadlines for work come up. The day before exams is always the worst at the high school level. Other than reviewing, and begging for extra credit, the students don't want to sit or do much of anything.
Final exams and I have a love hate relationship. As much as I don't want one test to define a student's progress. This test does give me an assessment of my own teaching from trimester to trimester and bell to bell.
We have 2 more days (of exams) and then our work day. This next week will be a little crazy with the end of school comes a few fun get togethers (Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons) and a ton of clean up in my classroom. And te garage sale and dealing with J's car. I will post more about both later.
But for now, I just wait for our administrators to play...
