I had a really frustrating day. I’m trying to blame it on January (cold, dark and totally inconsistent schedule). I needed help with how to deal with some of my students so I asked for help on Twitter. Most of the time when I say I’m at my wits end colleagues say, “I know! Me too! Those kids…” But the MTBoS says “Buck up Tina. Here’s what you’ve got to do. Now go back out there and teach your students!” So thank you, amazing support network, for supporting me rather than coming spiraling down with me. I’m going to survive this cold, dark and wacky month!
