So summer school is not quite going as planned.
The plan: Spend 12 days with about 8-12 kids in a low-key, low-stress environment. The kids would do a lot of work on their own while I spent a good portion of the day working on my lesson plans for the next school year. All of this while making in 12 days almost as much money as I do in an entire month.
The reality: I am spending 12 days with 23 kids in a moderately stressful environment. The kids may be working on their own, but I am spending WAY too much time grading papers and preparing for the next lesson. I am still making good money though.
What is up with that? Summer school was supposed to be easy? I should not be this stressed! I spent an hour after work just getting copies made. AND...I'm getting virtually nothing done towards being prepared for next fall. I was hoping to do a major overhaul on my lesson plans.
This may have been my own fault because I sent out around 30 letters to the parents of students who were eligible to go to summer school recommending that they come to one of the two sessions...it appears that they all came to the first session! That was not part of the plan!
