SOLSC23: Standing Out

Here’s what’s standing out to me in…

my personal life:
-I am prone to giving every part of me during the school day that I often find myself giving the leftover scraps to Kyle and the boys. It’s infuriating.
-I’m remaining consistent about the boys not watching TV on the weekdays. Elías asked me to watch TV tonight and became furious when I said no; however, I looked up from my dinner about 4 minutes later to see this:

my work life:
-WE ARE SO TIRED of state test prep that we’ve been required to do since February… 12 more school days until go time.
-I’m behind on making progress toward deadlines which annoys me.
-My students are such stinking troopers with all this mandated test prep.
-Some fun things include Teacher Squad camaraderie and Spirit weeks, like today’s mix of wear class color (sophomores are black) and celebrating beginning of Astros season!

my writing life:
-Aside from blogging in this March challenge, I’m strugglin. I hope to get back to journaling and poetry in April (alongside Suleika Jaouad’s 30-day journaling project and Ethical ELA’s daily poetry writing month).

    This line struck me: “I often find myself giving the leftover scraps to Kyle and the boys”–I think the wording of “leftover scraps” is so spot on–this is so common to teachers and so challenging. I really appreciate this format–it’s really interesting to read about what is standing out to you in different areas of your life. I’m going to save this as a mentor text for future slices!
