There was a staff meeting this afternoon and after a talk from United Way, we had a talk about stress and how to control it. It's called R.A.D.A.R. looked pretty interesting. Then because of some strange compression problem, the fire alarms kept going off during the meeting. Some laughed that having the alarms going off randomly were giving them stress, but some good tricks for helping each other out and taking care of someone who maybe needed a stress break. Glad the kids were all gone. Had LLI this morning, finished reading one book, jumped into another. Had them draw a crane and label the parts, glad tomorrow is Friday. Did some library time, then had three classes come in. Cafeteria duty, then a bit more library time (did I ever mention that all my breaks (2 a day) are during library time? So if I have half an hour to work in there, it's really only 20 minutes?). Up to Mrs. M's class and we did more passport work and I brought in my old passport for her to let the kids see one. Then back down for another library class, then back up to Mrs. M's class to finish the math part of the day. Got in a lot of books and even some kids found lost books and brought them in so they could check out for the first time in awhile. That made me happy. Five days of work until break.
