I’m having a majorly stressful time and the moment.


Yep - it’s that time when coursework folders have been called and we’re all scrambling round to get folders sorted, annotated and ready to send. It’s draining.

I take teaching very seriously. The work we do as educators is important. But I also wish so much of it wasn’t so humorless. In fact, teachers and administrators who lack a sense of humor should find another profession. That’s a fairly harsh and rigid position, but teaching and leading in schools without a sense of humor is detrimental for both the educators and the students.

We lived in the gaps between the stories.
