This week? Longest. Week. Ever. Unfortunately, education conferences have the nasty habit of either starting or ending on the weekend. It saves money on substitutes and also keeps administrators from having to be away from campus for an extended number of days. Both good things in the big picture. But leaving home on Saturday afternoon, attending a conference all day on Sunday and Monday, and arriving home after ten o’clock Tuesday evening makes for a very long work week.
Being scheduled into back-to-back meetings since then does not help. Neither does the fact that an irate parent thinks that calling my assistant names and then yelling at me during our phone conversation is the way to get what he wants.
I am so ready for the weekend.
