I have had more than my share of "crazy" this week. Not the good kind of crazy. The crazy kind of crazy. LOO-NEE-BIRD-CRAY-ZEE! Gone-off-the deep-end-crazy. Encounters of the "Get a Life" crazy? Are you with me?
My poor dear hubby is always there to listen to the craziness. He is the best about helping me let go of the Crazies. I am also very fortunate that I have a wonderful, supportive teaching partner and grade-level team. But, when my mind wanders, I like to have something to redirect my thoughts. Enter: Roy Rogers. I was very excited to find this quote on Pinterest recently.
This is much easier said than done. I'm just not the thick-skin type. But when I turned half-a-centurylast summer, I began to feel a stronger urgency to live every minute to the fullest. Roy....your wisdom lives on! Here are a few other suggestions for dealing with the CRAZIES!
Unfortunately, teachers are encountering more and more adult irrational behavior. How do you cope with it? Please share as we could all benefit from different ideas!
I had just finished writing and publishing this post when my doorbell rang. I was so surprised to see a former student (and his mom) who had moved across the country last year! He handed me a beautiful flower arrangement and said he was in town and asked his mom if he could stop by to say thank you for being his teacher. If he only knew how much I needed to here that today!
I believe it was a little divine intervention on this Holy Friday. God's work through my former student was this teacher's cure for the crazies.
