I don't know how many times I've heard that teachers have to be flexible (and patient)! Today was one of those crazy days where everyone at school had to be flexible. I got there early to go to a meeting for a family literacy night that I'm helping to plan. (The literacy night is this Thursday, hope all goes well!) Anyway, during my meeting, our principal came over the announcements and asked that we read our email about the bathrooms ASAP. Apparently a water line broke on our property right outside of school. (Usually this means the school would have to close, not at our school though, haha!) This meant we were unable to use any bathrooms or drinking fountains - no water at all. UGH! As soon as you find out you can't use something, you want to use it. So, of course, me and a few others felt a sudden urge......grrr! We had to troop the kids next door to the library or down to a grocery store......disastrous! Luckily, everyone was flexible. ;) My principal even had a man walking the halls with a cart of cold bottled water for staff and students!
Oh, my review/evaluation was scheduled for today but got postponed because of the water issue - more flexibility! I was feeling really ready for the evaluation but I guess I'll feel even more prepared next time! (Maybe?)
One more thing.........I'm so glad tomorrow is Wednesday......let's get over that hump! :)
