Anker Die Dorfschule von 1848 1896

I was supposed to be at a training all day, but no, I just had to go and conference with my substitute before school.

There was a mix up at District. The sub was late.

An hour later, I was finally finished explaining the conflict, teaching the class, advising a student about an award application, writing nurse’s passes, scrounging for extra pencils, comforting tears, answering emails — all clearly more urgent than my own needs — and wrangling stray students out of the hallway.

I hadn’t even had any coffee yet.

And they wonder why I am tired at eight-thirty in the morning.
