From Long Ago

I’m exhausted. The kind of exhausted where your head pounds, your throat hurts, and the thought of food makes you nauseas. The worst part about it is….it’s Monday.
I feel like I’m teaching better…working smarter….than I ever have.
But at what price?
Yesterday the boy joked, “What did I do to be so lucky to have you around to watch you work, sleep, and eat?”
It was a joke…kind of.
Except for there was truth behind it.
And I can’t count how many times in the last week a bowl of Lucky Charms was dinner.
But my kids are learning. And I feel effective. And valued. And this is what urban education should be…at least inside school walls.
But my average days are 6:45 – 6:45, plus a 1 hour commute both ways, and I’m struggling to find balance, peace, time to play with the dogs….and sleep.

I wrote this almost a month ago but never had time or made it a priority to post it....

Hi. I came across your blog as I comb the internet trying to find some comfort in knowing I am not alone. You know what I typed into my search? Overwhelmed, teaching. I am going through a really hard time right now; trying to find balance of being a teacher, wife, mother, and human. It's hard to function at times. I'm trying to figure out limits and boundaries right now. But with limits and boundaries I absolutely cannot do everything I am supposed to. I won't be effective. Any advice?

Thanks for your blog. <3
