If I Can Just Hold on!

We are less than a month away from the end of the school year.

And I am at the point where I want to slide into June 6th and not turn back.

Hey, its been a year with very little time to catch my breath!

I lived through a long slew of Middle School drama, ongoing disciplinary issues, being short-staffed, challenging staff personalities,  and I haven’t even gotten to my own personal struggles outside of the job!

But here I am again. I am in the final stretch.

If I can just hold on- it will be here...

There is almost something depressing about that though.

Living life waiting for the next “break”- hanging on by a sliver.

Internally counting down to that moment where things will settle and reach a level of calm.

There doesn’t seem to be much joy in living this way.

But that is where I am …until a choice is made to change.

And right now, I’m way too exhausted to even think beyond the next day, let alone the future.

Ah, the life of a educator.

The rewards will and do come.

With patience.

Believe me, they do.

If I can just hold on.
