Today’s word is “slacking”
“Yo miss! You’re slacking”
Because I don’t know an exact point range that we’ll get to this quarter. That’s not how I run my class. He just wanted to know what kind of C he would need on his nine weeks assignment to pass.
I shouldn’t take it to heart. And usually I don’t even register these kind of remarks. But today. Today is the Monday that starts my poetry unit, the Monday that starts Grad Bash ticket sales, the Monday before the Tuesday of a data meeting and a graduation meeting, the Monday I start trying to grasp the very few amount of Mondays I have left to teach everything before FCAT and AP tests – before EOCs and ELL tests. It’s about half past the time of year I start thinking of different ways I could’ve taught things in the first semester. It just made me feel like he was right.
So you know what I did when I got home? I slacked (that’ll show ‘em!). I finished reading my “for fun” book of the moment. I took an hour when I got home and stepped away from my to do list. (okay okay, I RAN back, but) I still managed to get some things done for the day.
I showed him lol.
