How true this is for me today. I am so glad it is Friday! Being a teacher, if you do it correctly, is a rather taxing endeavor. I mean you have to plan your lessons outside of class, meet with students outside of class, grade papers outside of class and then have to BE IN CLASS. What other job requires you to do all of your work outside of the normal work hours?

That is what teaching is: Plan, Prepare, Deliver and Assess. The main part of our job occurs outside of the regular day. Only after all of our work is complete are we able to actually deliver the instruction to the students. I am not complaining, but it is true. The work we do mostly occurs outside of, well, our work.

So I am glad it is indeed Friday so I can rest, oh wait, no rest for me. As I am the youth director at my church I will be planning and presenting the service at our church on Sunday. Which means for me, sermon prep on Saturday and probably into Sunday morning. No rest for the weary.

I will let you know how it went on Monday, until then, good night Irene and peace.
