I'm drowning in school. Help!
High school was overwhelming enough when I was a student myself, but now working there in a whole pile of different classes, most of which are Science, and having a kid of mine attend is...um...exhausting.
Seriously. Ever have to learn the whole grade 8-10 Science curriculum so you can assist kids with it? Not even just a few kids, but a whole PILE of them? I don't really have to, but it's the perfectionist in me to learn the stuff so that I can actually help teach it. I want to do my job WELL, you know?
Then there's other classes like English and Socials that have all sorts of stuff going on, and I'm in there too.
Don't get me wrong...I LOVE my job. It's just that I assist kids all day-I'm a note taker, advocate, scribe, reader, organizer, cheerleader, counselor, and then I come home and do it ALL over again! Except that Jake is far less willing and receptive, because Mom has been hit with the stupid stick. Na, even working at the school with his teachers doesn't mean I actually know something.
So if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go to bed. My brain is overflowing with information about Canada's political parties and their leaders, with visions of post it notes and white out swimming around in there.
I guess I'll have to get to posting on the weekend once I've recovered. Right now I'm just really...really....tired.
What's your school/homework nightmare?
