I have been going full speed as a fourth grade teacher assistant.

I can safely say I have never been so exhausted in my life.

Special education classes, self-contained classes. lunchtime monitoring, first line disciplinarian, playing no favorites…whew! I’m beat.

Let’s not forget that this time of the year has testing and then some.Coverage for other teachers? Check on that. Meeting my new bunch of fourth graders who call me Mrs. C.

I can honestly say that with the exception of caring for Zosia and Kasia, it’s the most rewarding job I ever had!
