I recieved an email that my supervisor is going to be comign in tomorrow to observe me. Mondays are the WORST day to be observed. I need to be observed so that I can stop stressing about when they are going to show up BUT I also didnt need it tomorrow!!!!! Im feeling totally overwhelmed and stressed right now. Im tired--exhausted---stressed about report cards coming up next week with grades NOT done... I seriously need a break. this weekend's mini "vaca" was a start but it wasnt enough. Im tried of feeling like Im drowning! SO just say a prayer that my observation goes well. Im 2 away from Tenure...... and this one is by the board, not my principal.
Praying it goes smoothly!
SO back in Dec our principal changed our schedule..... but apparently the suprvisor never got the memo... SO she was LATE (like 15 mins left ) when she came. apologized stayed and then came back for our phonics program (which my kdis this year STINK at staying on time with bc they can't focus and dont know how to listen and not talk) so she saw half of a small group, writing and then our phonics program (taht's suppsoed to take 30 mins and took 1hr) AND she wants to come back to see a whole group lesson. UGH! They are only required to observe for 30 mins.... she was in there for almost an hour and a half why does she have to come back?? so Im waiting for an email about when she will be back since Thurs was the day she picked and Im out that day. Did I mention my kids were horrendous today? the stress/etc started causing what felt like the start of contractions when she was htere... but she told me it was wonderful... I still have one more observation by the principal (who told her to come soon since I think he's startng to worry about me making it to the end of the year) which means he's going to get me soon too. guess I should sit down and write up an actual lesson for Math? I have a lesson its just not written up AND if he shows up he's going to want a copy. SIGH. itd be nice to knock it all out in a week but doubtful... I've GOT to get report cards done!
I hope you can get everything done without getting too stressed. I just came through a really stressful time at work with deadlines back to back. It has finally slowed a bit but I know how you feel. It's a lot on top of being pregnant and regular home stuff. ((hugs))
SO the supervisor emailed me and wants to come in on Friday (WORSE than Mondays) to observe. Friday after I am out a FULL day with a cruddy sub. SIGH. she emailed and said " Hi Patience.
Will Friday morning work for me to come in to observe Shared Reading and oneor two guided groups?
(which will put me at a grand total of almost 3 hrs observations when only 30 mins is requireD) Is it horrible my reponse was "Friday's are crazy (and this one might be extra because of the sub tomorrow) but sure!" I so want this over with. I am also going to have a student assistant meeting that I dont know what time yet (which means Fri morning I will also be doing sub plans) AND a new parent and child comign in to meet me during instruction time??? and between now and Wed I have to get ALL of my grading done for report cards. Lord give me strength!
