I have been back to work for three full days and part of one class period. I have first period planning. Of four first periods, I’ve been called to cover classes twice. For the ENTIRE. 90MINUTE. BLOCK. I teach for the rest of the day, minus a 27 minute lunch. My students have to eat in my room because the cafeteria will only hold 60 kids. The only thing I was looking forward to about work today was pulling a desk onto the landing outside my classroom during planning and plugging the new Indigo Girls CD into my earphones while I worked on grades. Now I will not be alone for the rest of the day unless I manage to run to the bathroom during lunch for 2 minutes.
So, yeah, in case you were wondering, it sucks.
