Teachers unite!

Good morning everyone. I know that I am glad that it is Saturday.

Mary, I hope you feel better. Take it easy and get lots of rest.
Kim, I am so sorry hear your school lost a student to Rita.
Cathy, I hope your dad can find a place very soon.

Our district keeps losing students to the charter schools in our area. Therefore, many of the schools are losing teachers. We were informed yesterday that we were going to lose one teacher this year. But, because one of the 1st grade teachers wanted to move into the reading interventionist position, we did not lose anyone. So what is happening is one of the 2/3 split teachers is moving to 1st grade and her class is going to be split between the other five 2/3 split classrooms. This teacher did not want to teach 1st grade and tried to get the principal from to let me have the 1st grade. (Which is what I really wanted this year.) The principal just out right vetoed the idea. We have state testing next week and the following week is our last one for the quarter. We are out on intersession from Oct 17th - 28th and when we return the change will take place.

Like Mary, I feel terrible. I think I have an ear infection and a sinus infection. I could not get to the doctor yesterday so I am off to urgent care.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Hello ladies!
I do so much enjoy reading your posts and am trying desperately to learn everyone's names! I am horrible with names (imagine that, a teacher not remembering names!).....but I am trying!
Black curtain time (sorry, Cathy...I tried to poo-poo the black curtain!). This past week was homecoming at our school, so the students were on a continuous "high", yet....they were unteachable. Tomorrow, they will be in one big "low" and once again, unteachable! I am personally going through some difficult days with this HRT that I have started. I have been on the Femring for 3 weeks and am trying to get a progesterone that I can tolerate. I tried Prometrium (100mg) for 2 weeks, but was literally comotose for my first 2 class periods each day. Now, I am using a compound progesterone cream. I'm not quite as comotose, yet....I don't like who I am or how I act with this cream. My 3 sons caused me to cry twice on Friday (misbehaving when they came home from school). Normally, I can handle their "boyish behavior"....but something just put me over the edge. I can't stand myself right now and am slipping into depression here. I'm trying so hard to put on my bubbly "game face" each day at school....but it is getting difficult. Don't know what to do or where to turn anymore.
Sorry to vent such negativity here. You ladies are all such wonderful people and your students are so lucky to have such fantastic and caring teachers!
Happy Monday to all!

Hello to everyone!
Well I don't have to worry about my son's new school not knowing him. The nurse called me (naturally, as my students were entering class) last Monday AM. Said DS was in complaining of a sore throat, yet she only found minor redness. However, due to his recent history she decided to check his vitals. His heart rate was 128. After she had him rest, it was only down to 120. Since he appeared to be fine and had no compalints other than the throat, she sent him back to class. Then, she called to inform me of her findings, "...incase I wanted to let his dr, know." I called to set up an appointment and the nurse said to bring him to emergency immediately. They did blood work and an EKG. Although it was elevated, they felt he was okay and would continue to monitor him for a month before sending him to a pedi-cari specialist. Now, the nurse needs to record his vitals everyday and weight once a week. Needless to say, I am grateful and impressed with the new schools attention and initiative to act on precautionary measures. I will keep you informed. Thanks to everyone for the well wishes, prayers and notes.
I won't be writing to individuals, as I'm thrilled to have our DD home visiting for a long weekend and still very busy.
Take care all and HAPPY Monday!

Hello to all!
It appears that we are quite caught up in the daily happenings of life. It's already Thursday and I am just getting around to checking the site. I do hope everyone is doing ok.
Kathy - yes, a pat on the back for the school recognizing your son's health concerns. So much monitoring....blessings to both of you. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope the time with DD was special.
Lisa: You are going through some mighty festive times. I am so sorry to hear this. Have your tried seeing an endocrinologist? They can help with hormone levels. It is apparent that yours needs some tweaking.
As for the levels of your students... Mine have been off as well. I just keep them engaged and pray for this to pass. A lot of rain seems to be the culprit here.
Purplebear - I hope you are feeling better these days. Your district has some strange plans in store for you. I am sorry they didn't put you in the first grade position like you wanted. That would have helped enormously. Hang in there until intercession. That should provide a much needed break.
Well dears - Hello to all the other sisters and I hope to see a posting from you soon. I don't know if I mentioned this but my father will be moving in with me this Friday. He is traveling from Arizona and his health is not good. My Mom and Dad divorced 2 years ago after 50 years of marriage. My Mom resides in this town. I sure hope I can keep the peace and help him with his physical ailments.
Please take care!
Love to all of you...

Hello everyone,
It seems ages since I sat at the computer and I see everyone's been reallly busy - the way of teachers at this time. I was just too weak for a few days - but feel better now.
Thanks so much to you all for the good wishes. It means a lot.

I haven't been into school this week and the doctor has signed me off for next week - I'll see how it goes though as I really need to see my students. The flu turned into a chest infection and I could hardly breathe. I got antibiotics from the Dr but they didn't work and now I'm on a second type, much stronger. Chest still rattles but at least I'm breathing more normally! I've never had anything like this in my life and it was frightening.

Cathy your father must be moving in today. Hope it goes smoothly for you and all involved. You'll be expert on tact an diplomacy by the time you've finished! It will be a very busy time too, with your health, the demands of school and this on top. Do take care of yourself as well as others. Prayers coming your way.

For you too, Kathy - hope your son is well again now. As you say - may be at least school will know and care for his needs more appropriately now.

Lisa I think we've all found it difficult to juggle home/family and school - and sometimes it seems we give so much to school we end up snapping at home. Hang in there.

Christine that principal of yours sounds terrible. Roll on the break Our half term break is the same time.

Hi to everyone else - Sarah (any forecasts?), Cindy, Donna - how are you?

Love to all.

Hello, ladies!
Yes, it seems like we're all tied up with school activities and I must say.....thank goodness the weekend is here! And thank you, Christopher Columbus, for allowing us to celebrate with a day off on Monday! I sure hope that everyone is surviving their school year. I am still trying to juggle the HRT issue and am now back on Prometrium (and the Femring). My brain goes "south" quite often during class and I often feel one step behind my 11th & 12 grade singers (my "cream of the crop" chorus!). Thankfully, they know about my surgery and know where I am at in the juggling of meds. I have had these wonderful students since 6th grade and they are so good to me; and so patient with me. I'm just hoping that they hang in there with me and keep plugging along, despite my continuous mistakes & brain fog moments! I don't think that my younger choruses are ever concious of my "moments"! Must be their age!
Here's hoping everyone has a restful weekend and I am still attempting to learn everyone's name here!
Hugs to all!

Hi, everyone. Obviously I haven't been getting the post reminders and as you all have said, many things demanding our attention. Finally I am making time to check in with my sisters.

Monday is productive, after that three days for pruning to discourage growth. Nip those unhelpful behaviors in the bud. (I have four students reporting to me during their lunch next week because they didn't stay with our class during the fire drill Thursday. I told them just a few minutes before the drill to stay with me or...)

I've been a bit distracted by little things lately. I have a fractured rib from falling in the garage... long, embarrassing story. And I can't seem to shake an intestinal bug for two weeks now. I went to the doctor so I am investigating. And now fire ant stings. It's all little stuff.

Everyone have a great week.

Cathy= thank-you for your "well" wishes. DS seems to be holding his own. DD's visit was wonderful... she is soooo happy in her job. but lonely for her friends and family 15 hrs away. It was nice to see her running around non-stop making the most of her all too short visit.
Good luck with your Dad's move AND the peace keeping!
We just celebrtaed my folks 50th and our 29th this week. Seems like just yesterday... I was a skinny bride!!!! LOL

Mary= I do hope this finds you feeling much better. My sons new school is doing a tremendous job. His dr. asked if middle school was okay... his response was no...GREAT! I knew he was happy, but was pleasantly surprised with his response. His state test results were mailed to us this week and he made advanced, not to mention his progress report has him on the high honor roll. Not bad for a kid that has been sooooo sick. Don't know where he gets his brains, but I'm proud... he's worked very hard.

Lisa= I remember the frustration of brain fog well! Remember...This too shall pass. Good luck.

Sarah= My goodness you seem to be in a "tangle of weeds". Take care of yourself and keep us updated. I hope you are back to blossoming soon!

Donna= Where are you? Hope all is well!

To all my sisters, I'm thinking of you. Take care. xxxoooo Kathy

Just a quick check to see how everyone is doing.
My father arrived Friday night and things have been ok. We are all trying to work out a schedule where everyone is happy. He is so grateful to be here - now I have to get those medical issues cleared up.
Mary - how have you been feeling? I hope things are better this week. Please take it slow. If you start back up too quick you know what will happen.
Sarah - goodness gracious! A broken rib, intestinal stuff and ant bites?? Honey you need a vacation. Please rest.
Kathy - that you for the peacekeeping prayer So far I have not gotten them in the same house. I am slowly making progress though. How nice to have DD with you. I can understand her loneliness issues. 15 hours away can become quite a long distance. I hope she makes new friends. As for DS - those test scores are great! What an accomplishment. Kudos to both you and him.
Lisa - how has your week been going? I hope this HRT business gets settled. It does take time to find the right medication and dosage....hang in there....the weekend is just around the corner.
My love to all!

Hello everyone,
Just a quick drop by. Thanks so much to you all for your good wishes. So good to read all the posts - pleased all is well with your father Cathy. I will try to to talk to you all again properly soon.

I'm still off school but due to see the Dr again tomorrow for review. I think that the meds are at last working and I'm on the mend. Still breathless though when I do much and coughing loads.

I have to prepare work each evening for the cover teachers to do next day - so have to get that finished now for tomorrow.

We're off school after Friday for half-term break. Hoping I'll be ok so that we can go to France for a short break - it would be good to have a change.

Take good care everyone - hope the end of the week goes smoothly.
Love to all.
