Mondays are hard. Each class is roughly 40 minutes long and it’s hard to get anything done. Students were so restless today, it was hard to get them to do anything. Days like this when I feel totally exhausted but that I didn’t accomplish anything. Sometimes I really hate this job and I regret my decision to do this. Sorry to disappoint, but this is the truth and it’s how I’m feeling today.

I think all teachers have days like these. Hang in there! 🙂
Your students are lucky to have a teacher who cares enough about their learning that he’s bummed when they don’t accomplish enough in class. Good luck with the rest of the week.
And maybe you can repurpose a chocolate-filled advent calendar to count down the days until winter break. Anything to keep you going! 🙂
Thanks for the encouragement, Julia! I’m definitely feeling less cranky than when I wrote that post.
I see your bad Monday, and raise you this one:

Ugh. You “win.” Thanks for the perspective.
