Thank you Two Writing Teachers for creating this space for me to share my corner of the world.
It is late, and I don't have a slice.
I could write about how our Internet has been down most of the weekend and how disconnected I have felt.
I could write about how I overslept on my first morning back after spring break, and I felt rushed the entire day.
I could write about how the first student who walked into my room this morning said, "I need to get a book!"
I could write about how two students asked if we could do book clubs again.
I could write about how my substitute teacher for my professional day on Wednesday is my former social studies teacher who I had 40 years ago.
I could write about how I know a college student who has a 10 page rough draft of a research paper due Thursday, and he didn't start until tonight.
I could write about how that very thought makes me sick to my stomach and wonder how I will ever make through these last few months.
It is late, and I have a slice.
