a week in highlights

It's been one of those weeks.

Evenings away from home four nights this week took a bit of a toll on me, and when combined with craziness at work it has left me with less "me time" then I typically require, and my blogging has suffered as a result.

In a lazy-man blogger move, here are a two interesting things I read on the internet this week:

On Melissa Writes:

I’ve been called a bitch, smart ass, ugly, old, and a whole slew of other names this year. I had a student falsely accuse me of pushing him in effort to get me fired this year. I also had a student threaten me multiple times at work. I’ve broken up several fights and almost gotten hurt in the process. My phone got stolen last year. A student threw a pen at me one day. 


I don’t know very many other professions that have to deal with any of these things.


At the end of the day though, I love what I do. I love making an impact. I love those students that make all of this worth it. For every kid that has caused me pain, there’s about 10 who I absolutely adore. I want that to be clear.


You can see income inequality from space.

Regular blogging will begin... now.
