I am finally starting to feel like I can come up for a breath of air every now and then. You know, I feel like I say this every semester, but this is the busiest semester I’ve had yet. I have had the most important, longest assignments. And I’m teaching Writing II, which means my students are writing longer papers, which means I have more to grade.
Right now, at this very moment, the things I need to accomplish will require me to wear my teacher hat. This is definitely a semester where I am letting myself and my responsibilities come before those of my students, as I did during my first semester as a teacher-student.
I’m so ready for it to be over. :'( I need a break!
