Weirdest Day Ever

I have stated before, but I am going to point out again that I am a teacher. I teach special education in a rural area. It is only 10:34 and today has been the strangest funniest day ever already. On posts that don’t fit any of the blogs perfectly, it goes across multiple.


Let me start in the morning. A weird thing about your husband being out of town is that it is really hard to find your phone when there isn’t another phone in the house to call it. Lets just say I don’t have my phone right now. I tried the google home we have, which I have reluctantly, despite resistance, grown to like. The problem is that the google home is way louder than my phone. So, I give up eventually after missing a morning planning session, no phone. Ok so…


Now I am going into my cotaught fifth grade class. I love my job too. I really do. Like with any job there are harder or stressful days but it is the best. My kids are amazing and the teachers I work with are so collaborative. One of my students is one I really enjoy teaching. I shall code name this student as 7. Lucky 7. Anyway, so 7 is one of those low energy kids. Not in a bad way, but this student you know is going to be the chill one. Even on a day where they are super happy, this student will smile, be a little more energetic, maybe change topics a lot. Not today. I was joking that this student came from Mars today, but whatever it is the word of the day is ENERGY. It was like a face swap happened. It was the same goofy 7 I have grown to love, but they had so much energy. It was like 7 was a bag of pop rocks. 7 was on task, but every correct answer was a celebration, and every wrong one deserved a ‘man that sucks.’ I tried some data collection today. It happened, but was not a clear picture of 7. Finally it was like the student needed to get out. So off 7 went to get something for me from another teacher. Something heavy. It helped a little, but it was hilarious in a way. I loved seeing 7 with so much energy and peppiness, but still… pop rocks.


With my fourth grade group the heavy item was returned. Is silliness contagious? Is the cheerful explosion just a thing? Are we all just so happy it is seeping out everywhere?!


Fridays man…
