Yes, I know I said last post I needed some relaxation. I need it even more this week-end. It has been a very difficult week. I have a wonderful group of boys and girls (third grade) this year. They are a very challenging class. They are need a lot of "catch up" in order to get through the curriculum. That's okay. Hopefully we will make it. But that is stressful. Then there is about 100 new things coming across us teachers' plates this year. Lots of changes to how we do things. None of them "bad", in fact most of them very good changes. Just new and hard to learn (for the moment, I hope). Add to all that I have a new working arrangement. It is causing me a lot of difficulty. I have always viewed myself as having once had a lack of confidence - well, this new person has taken that award away from me! My goal is to help her see herself as valuable and a potentially good teacher (she's a student teacher), but it is wearing a bit thin on me.
So yep, zen was what I needed! Big time. First off Diva challenge! We had to use phicops and Diva dance tangles. I love both of them so I actually got two done!
