You did then what you knew how to do, And when you knew better, You did better. Maya Angelou

I have eleventy blog posts in the back of my mind but I haven’t had time or energy to get to them. the last 30 days of the school year (not say the month of may—school is going into June this year). We’re all burnt, we’re all tired. I have SO much to do I’m concerned about getting it all done in time, but I’m also learning the biggest lesson of working in education: there will always be more that needs to be done, more you need to learn, more you want to do. There is always more more more. And you have to do what you can, the best you can and stop before it consumes you. Slow and steady (with short nitro burns) wins the race.

I tend to burn bright and hot and what I’m learning is to burn a little bit slower so that the wick lasts longer. I’ve had that problem about work or school my whole life. I’ve gotten better, lost some steps and gotten better again. But now I recognize what’s going on and that finally makes a difference in what I do, will do.

I wish I had more to say. I am searching for a way to feel better about what I do. I know I do a good job. I know I work very hard, I’d just like to feel like I’m making a difference and get more in touch with the serving the students/helping  part of things and less concerned with navigating the various territories.

Sigh.
