I had a dream similar to this one a few times last year.
So the dream starts with me walking into my classroom and seeing a teacher taking down all my bulletin boards and basically everything that makes my classroom mine.
I ask this person why she is doing it and her response is, “This isn’t your classroom anymore.”
I remember feeling such dread and sadness. I burst out crying thinking about how much I am going to miss teaching my kids and all that. It seriously felt like the world had come to an end and it felt so real!
All the teachers were shunning me and no one was giving me an explanation as to why I wasn’t working there anymore.
I never found out why I was let go by the school.
I woke up depressed then became quickly happy when I realized I still have a job and I am going to go and see my kids,
Ever have those moments where you just want to look at someone and say, "Girl (or another choice of word), please."
I do my copies in the morning. I’m just more productive before school rather than after school. I get into work pretty early so I can get everything done. Anyway, every time I am in the copy room, there is this one teacher that comes in after me and just rolls her eyes or makes comments like I am always there or that she is going to have to wait for so long blah blah (it take 10 minutes if not less) and even called me the, “the copy queen.”
You fo serious?
I don’t even make that many copies.
If she comes in every morning then she makes an equal amount of trips to the copy room.
I don’t know.
She bothers me every time with her eye rolling.
My response is always a smile and I just continue making my copies.
I can’t help myself!
I bought a pumkpin scented candle ( I am SO not a candle person) to light when I cook dinner for my boyfriend and we have dinner. We have a running joke because our first few dinner dates, there was a candle at every table we sat out. So now we have our own candle.
I tell myself this pretty much every day.
