Not a promising start to the day. Woke up from a bad dream to find out I’d overslept and had 20 minutes to get ready if I wanted to get to this morning’s assignment on time. Got there and got classroom keys stuck in the keyhole. Lesson plans were late; a secretary finally brought them in 15 minutes into the period. One student refused to do the assignment because, “This is the second time I’m taking this class, and I’m still failing.” Another told me I was “rude” when I told her (firmly) to take out her earbuds, get her geometry book, and start working on the assignment. Went to get keys out of the keyhole to find them gone.
Right now, relaxing with a cafe con leche and hoping for the best for the afternoon and evening.
