A short interlude from the Olympics has been necessitated by the necessities related to an actual job.
This is the time of year at the school where I work when we all go slightly mad.
Classes for different grades end at different times and we find ourselves finishing exams for one grade whilst we have several days left to teach in other grades.
By next week we’ll be marking exams at the same time we’re planning and teaching other classes. During that time we may have one class on Wednesday afternoon and one class Thursday morning.
This seems awesome, but it requires we keep careful track of time and days lest we miss one of those classes. (Note: this happens more than it should.)
Eventually we’ll be passing back exams the same day we are getting others.
At some point we’ll stop caring, but today is not that day. Close. But not yet.
