So when you look at that picture, what does it remind you of? For me, once I get over the wonderful feeling it would give me in my tummy, I think of teaching. No, I don't mean that I think teaching is spinning in circles... most days. However, haven't you heard of the education roller coaster? You know, how many days can be great, and then other days are not so great? It's like the motion of a roller coaster.
My question is about how you deal with this roller coaster. I know for me, it is the one thing that can really get me down. Sometimes, I work so hard on something that I am SURE will go over well with my kids and keep them engaged when it does exactly the opposite... happened a few times this week by the way.
What helps me to get through it and manage it is lots and lots of prayer, faith in him answering my prayers and knowing he's right by my side, and talking with colleagues, my husband, or my mom.
I think it's great for us to talk about this since it's there in every classroom no matter how perfectly adorable it may appear on a blog. I know Abby at The Inspired Apple talked about it last week.
So, how do you manage this "roller coaster"? I'd love to hear!
