Ready?! Fall BREAK!
Aka I’ll be grading and planning from home the next few days before my little excursion!
Also, I should probably sleep sometime. All of my coworkers have asked me if I’m okay this week 🤣 I usually am on top of everything and have my life pretty put together. It’s slowly been unraveling the last 10 weeks as I adjust to teaching all college-level courses that are quite large and rather writing/grading intensive while planning for two brand new preps, teaching an overage (which I would happily do every semester of my life!), being on my school’s instructional leadership team, being a member of my district’s professional development and leadership team, sponsoring my school’s chapter of NEHS and our student book club, being in 8 book clubs, doing all of the reading for my AP Lit class, participating in the world’s best female empowerment and support group around: @goshinegirl, and managing college essay and letter of rec season. Did I mention I also am a driving instructor and tutor a college student in writing during all of my free time while also being super introverted?! 🤯😴 I love what I do, but I would not make it one more week without losing my mind. Actually, I already lost it! LOL
I’ll just believe the claim that a messy desk is a sign of genius. @kmelchior2017 does this stress you out?! 🤣 Also, today was really good: I left my house, got to school, realized I left the timed writes for the peer grading activity at home, turned around, sat in traffic, got home, grabbed the bag I set out last night, left my house, drove back to work, and then realized I didn’t have my ID badge or my key card to get inside. Don’t worry, though, my badge was in the timed writes’ place on the kitchen island! Two more days until Fall break. I might make it? 🤣🤦♀️🤷♀️ Just embrace the chaos.
Also, here’s my @qdoba order #subtweet for when you misplace your Post-It 🤣: Nachos, chips on the side, 3-cheese queso, queso Diablo, brown rice, black beans, pulled pork, salsa verde, and salsa roja and/or habanero salsa, and shredded cheese.

I have absolutely NO clue who our secret book gifter is that has been sending us books for our classroom library this week, but my kids think this is the coolest thing to ever happen to us, and I’ve been freaking out each time the office says I have a package. If it’s you, THANK YOU times a million! You sent us the best books! 😍 My kids are so excited for some new fantasy options (there’s now a waitlist for @alwynhamilton’s series and my kiddo that has Legend is stoked to have the sequels back on the shelves since some kids loved them so much in the past they decided they needed to keep them. And how cool does Spinning Silver sound?!) Happy #teacherfeetupfriday! What are your plans/what are you reading this weekend? I’ll be catching up on all 7 of my book club books, finally getting 100% caught up on my grading, getting an oil change (yes car, I know you have less than 5% oil life 😱), and seeing my long lost Michigan BFF on Sunday! Can’t wait! Also, mani/pedi and face mask...
