I’m feeling a little burned out lately… Teaching 5 classes again, 4 of which are totally different, and none of them being taught by any other teachers to share the burden of prep work, is catching up with me… Is it really only Monday?
So needless to say I’m not going to be posting anything of substance tonight. Instead, I’m working on a really great persuasive essay assignment about controlled burning in forests for my botany class. It’s a good thing I love the subject matter and there’s always something exciting going on. I’m also hoping to put something together about Copenhagen in the next few days, since we’re talking about greenhouse gases right now in environmental science and it’s perfect timing. Just need to make it cohesive. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of pre-made lesson plans out there for the subjects I teach, especially not on such current issues, so it’s all up to me. And I just realized I forgot to photocopy a review sheet on fiber analysis for my forensic science class tomorrow, so that’ll be a mad dash to the copier in the morning. I guess the forgetful pregnancy brain is setting in…
I think the other problem is that I didn’t get much sleep last night. My back hurts and I just can’t get comfortable. I’m headed to bed soon and hoping for a restful night with my new maternity pillow!
Don’t even ask how my Christmas shopping is going.
