It’s 12:30 a.m. and I am wide awake. I don’t want to be awake, but I have all these things weighing on my mind.
- I am taking my mom to the hospital tomorrow morning at 6:00 a.m. for surgery. Of course I’m worried. That’s why I’m awake.
- It is unbearably cold here in Indiana right now and most area districts have called for a 2-hr delay in the morning in hopes that the temperatures will rise. My district has not. Here is why I am worried. Will my district opt to cancel school tomorrow altogether and make it an e- learning day?
Are you seeing my dilemma? I took the day off. I went in on Sunday and made sub plans in order to be with my mom.
If school cancels, I am going to be creating e-lessons on a computer that has only 1/2 battery power remaining. Creating lessons that both educate and inspire my students…without me. This is so much easier said than done .
Then, somehow between carting my mom to and from her surgery and taking care of her while she is home, I must be at my computer available to my students.
Yep. This is why I am not sleeping. I know you hard working teachers out there understand my fears all too well.
You, too, are probably up still grading, lesson planning, copying, creating , etc for your amazing students tomorrow.
If you do get some rest, don’t oversleep. 🙂
