I did not earn a summa cum laude honor for a bachelor's degree of music education so that I could babysit a room full of fourth graders, miss ALL of my plan time without notice, and not be apologized to.
I did not work my butt off all week planning lessons for 6 classes only to not be able to teach them because I didn't have any time to put the materials on my CART that I wheel around to other classes so that THEY can have their plan times.
Vent, rant, rave: over.
On the bright side: one of my fourth grade classes is singing for a volunteer luncheon that our school is putting on. They lit up my day today. They learned a song perfectly in 35 minutes and can sing it and play it on recorder in 3 part harmony. It was just beautiful. The words to the song:
Let me be a light for hope.
Let me be a light for peace.
From the seas below to the skies above,
Let me be a light for love.
