I got nothing. Sorry!

eARCs thanks to the authors and publishers:

So, Monday I wasn’t feeling good. I had a cough, nausea, headache, etc. So, I went to the doctor and they decided a COVID test was in order. I just got my results back on Saturday (negative). I still don’t feel great and am having some breathing issues for sure. Also, I’m nervous about going back to work. They have us subbing nearly every day. First, I don’t like subbing. It’s why I am not a sub. I don’t like jumping into other people’s classrooms and such. Second, the stress of wondering “what is going to happen today” is causing anxiety attacks. Honestly, I don’t even know what to do. Lots of schools are making teachers cover for each other due to absences so we aren’t unique in that, but I am not okay with having to bear the burden all on teachers. Why are teachers the only ones who have to sacrifice? If we are that short handed, why can’t we sub one day, and do online one day until we can get things back under control? Why do teachers have to be the only ones to sacrifice?

I love teaching, but I don’t love teaching right now. However, its not like its a good time to look for other professions. Sigh.

Anyway, I spent the week sleeping mostly. The cough meds made me tired, plus I was just plain fatigued.

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Sorry you are under the weather, but whew! So glad it wasn’t covid. I don’t think people realize how difficult it is going into someone else’s classroom and trying to get a group of kids you don’t have a relationship with to do what you need them to do. ((HUGS) and I hope your winter break comes quickly.

  2. I’m sure it was suggested but if your symptoms worsen (especially breathing issues) or don’t subside after 5-7 days you should be retested.. it will also give you a few more days off while you wait for results.
    I hope you get a break soon

    Wishing you a great reading week, take care of yourself x

  3. Sorry to hear your work life is so stressful! I hope things settle down and that you feel better.

    I almost accepted Layla, but I was too busy to take it on. Seeing your 3.5 stars makes me think that it was the right choice.

  4. Oh I hope you’re feeling better! Glad it wasn’t Covid. I hear you on the subbing, my cousin is a teacher and he’s done a lot of subbing too. I feel for teachers right now!

    I hope you have a great week.

  5. Oh I’m sorry you have to sub. Being a teacher right now is hard. I’m in aww at how amazing and adaptable teachers are. It’s so not easy right now to be a teacher. Sorry to hear you’re under the weather. Glad it’s not COVID. Hope you feel better. Take care.

  6. I’m currently doing an Education degree and I also work as a casual education assistant. I do the same thing: go to schools and classrooms where I’m new and i do not know what will happen. It is for sure anxiety inducing. I hope you feel better this week!

  7. I am sorry to hear that’s so hard right now Samantha! And you totally make sense while offering to alternate between subbing and online teaching. I am crossing my fingers for you. Soon you’ll have a break!

    I’m sorry you are under such a stress, that and the health issue… I’m sending big HUGS your way and wish you will be able to enjoy your winter break :-*

  9. That really sounds bad with the subbing. I really hope you guys get a chance to do online classes, like many of us are doing. I hope your symptoms reduce and you stay COVID free.
