I survived week 10 of my grad school quarter. Now just finals, then a week off, then the first week in April I start a new quarter. No rest for the weary. But, I only have 4 classes this quarter instead of 5. So, I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! Woohoo!

My students are struggling hard as we get closer to the last weeks of school. The discipline report for the middle school was LONG this week. Kids are just so mean to each other! Its really telling how very socially maladjusted they are. I don’t know if it was the lack of in person school during COVID or just changes in how they are raised, but they are struggling.

Other than that, it was a pretty low key week. I am taking a day off this coming Wednesday to do my taxes and get my finals done.
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. I wouldn’t be surprised if your students are struggling due to the restrictions of COVID. It has really affected everyone emotionally and mentally and not in a good way and kids need social interaction and stability. I feel for them in their struggles. I mean look at the suicide rates—-its very telling and scary too and makes you realize we don’t realize the impact of being around people is what we need. Yay for getting taxes done. I just got mine done and it feels nice to have it finished and not having to worry about it.

  2. Good luck with your finals. I am sure you will slay them. *Sigh* I taught 2002 – 2017, and I feel like the kids got ruder and lost some decency with the rise of social media. That could just be me reading into it, but the timing does fit my observations. Just saying.

  3. I don’t know as I am not in school and don’t have children in school but the whole example of tfg bullying and name calling wasn’t a good example. Everyone seems more concerned about ME ME and their personal freedom even if something simple like wearing a mask might save many lives. That’s how it feels anyway. I’m so glad you are taking care of yourself and seeing the positive future.

  4. Yep, the discipline here is getting bad as well. Today I had a kid take all of the bookmarks out of my big display thing, that’s 8 stacks of bookmarks. And he dropped a bunch in the lobby outside the library. Another student brought those back to me. An administrator “talked” to him and said he hadn’t meant to drop them. When I told the admin I was more concerned that the student took 8 stacks so that now no students could have those, and that each stack cost around $8, the admin just said we could buy some more. It is so frustrating to have that type or lack of support. Ugh ugh ugh. It’s nice you’re getting one less class this semester! HOpe those all go well for you and you have a good week!
