I caught a break at school today.
Our district pays for all sophomores and juniors to take the PSAT during school. I was assigned as a proctor for that test, but no somehow no students were assigned to me! Being a team player, though, I helped out as much as I could, putting out fires as the testing started. After about a half an hour of running around, things calmed down, and then I had some time to catch up on work. Nice!
After testing, classes began--which means that classes were only about 25 min long today. Still, I was able to get some teaching and learning accomplished.
So what could have been a very crappy day ended up not being horrible, at least for me. Under the circumstances I'll call it a victory!
