The Thanksgiving Holiday marks the last break I will get this semester. It’s been rough, and I desperately need the time to recoup. I’ve been saying it all semester, and it’s still true. The semesters are getting tougher on me.
Despite technological advancements, grading still takes too long. Students don’t understand, or worse, dismiss the instruction I give them, never bothering to read the feedback I give.
Every teacher I see responds with the same weary sigh when asked “How’s it going?”
Those sighs keep getting longer.So I will take this break as an opportunity to recharge sorely worn-out batteries, and to give thanks for the students who care.
