It's the end of third term.
With Final Projects and End of Course Exams behind us,
we spent the last day of class enjoying these sweet treats.
I know there are teachers that serve on our district's calendar committee,
but I'm going to guess they don't teach a nine-weeks long term class.
Ending the term in the middle of the week just causes a whole lot of stress for the teacher.
Can I still hand in this missing assignment?
Have you corrected our tests?
I missed the final project, how do I make that up?
I need to check in my book...
I need to pay my lab fee...
And then, after a short night at home,
teachers need to be ready to meet new students,
learn new names,
introduce new course outlines,
and discuss classroom expectations.
All, while making a good first impression
and establishing a respectul teacher/student rapport.
But, this is what makes it all worthwhile.
