Teachers Never Clock Out!

This was my desk at home on Friday. I don’t have Friday classes. Since I don’t have to walk into a classroom on Fridays, many assume that I have the day off. I mean – if you are a teacher and you are not “teaching,” what could you possibly have to do, right? The photo above just shows a little bit of the stacks of papers I had to haul home this weekend. I got through this group on Friday as well as created a web test for a special needs student who needs certain accommodations. I also had to create some new assignments to go along with a new approach I’m taking with grammar in my Composition I class.

There is still a stack of untouched hardcopy essays from Composition II to grade, and then there are the emails and web papers that I need to get to this weekend too. I’m taking Saturday off from school work, so that means those are my Sunday projects.

So today I blog and craft and do laundry and ignore the fact that I need to vacuum, but tomorrow, I clock back in as “teacher.”
