Every school has those couple of teachers who say things like, "Is it Friday yet?" or have a "how many days until summer" count down displayed on the board by the second week in October. I find these teachers annoying.
But I must admit that this week I find myself anxiously awaiting Friday's arrival and all the freedom it brings.
I need a break. It was hard to work when I was pregnant with Emily... or more like inconvenient. But being pregnant with twins, and already having a toddler is much harder. You can't just come home and take a nap when you feel like it.
I consider my job an important one, and therefore try my best every day. But the past few weeks I have felt inadequate in more ways than one. I felt like I haven't been a good teacher, wife, or mother the past few weeks... as I have done a mediocre job in every area, but not great.
I'm sick of feeling mediocre.
Maybe it is the perfectionist in me, but I need a break from school I think mostly so that I can concentrate on being a wonderful mom and wife. Not being a teacher for a few weeks may be the way to gain back that confidence, at least in those two areas.
