The Wall

That infamous wall that we hear others talk about...the one they hit when they are doing something that is difficult...I hit it earlier this week (with teaching) and feel like I'm sliding down it!!!!!

The last four days in a nutshell...
Three of my best (and favorite) students got caught by a substitute, cheating on a science test I had given them. CAUGHT! BIG TIME...one was passing a note with answers to the others. Of those three students (all of whom disappointed me seriously), two have apologized...the other doesn't seem to understand what she's done. FRUSTRATING!

In my regular math class, we covered integers in January...they are not easy, but I expected my students to have learned and be able to recall the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing them by now. Today while teaching I answered the same questions about adding and subtracting integers that I've been answering since January!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH!

Someone please remind me why I do this!
