For October, the themes include family tales and scary stories. Enjoy and happy writing.
Sorry everyone that I have not kept up with the My Tales Writing Challenge. This year, my job as a middle school teacher has taken much of my time and energy since I have more responsibilities and larger class sizes. As a language arts teacher, the grading is never ending!
In addition, for the past two months, my back pain has flared up once again, and in all honesty, it takes a toll on me. With this latest recurrence, I get up wit the chickens, so I can start my day with stretches and warm-ups. By the end of the day, I am exhausted, so bedtime now comes at an earlier hour.
With the latest changes, I do not have the time or the energy to stay on top of my blog, but I miss it. But, there always seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. First, my back pain is not always this severe, so I know the intensity will not last. And, keep your fingers crossed for me, next year, I may begin teaching a new subject. Several years ago, I spoke to my principal and requested a switch in the subject that I teach. Although I enjoy teaching English, I want to try something new; I would love to teach social studies. As the school enrollment continues to soar, we need additional teachers. He came to me and asked if I would like to take on the history job, and of course, I accepted. If I receive this position, it will lighten my load. So here’s to new adventures!
