Too Little Time?

Everything old is new again…

Many of us remember the words Bob Dylan sang many years ago…

Come gather ’round people

 Wherever you roam

 And admit that the waters

 Around you have grown

 And accept it that soon

 You’ll be drenched to the bone

 If your time to you

 Is worth savin’

 Then you better start swimmin’

 Or you’ll sink like a stone

 For the times they are a-changin’…

It seems these words still fit today.  Times are difficult for teachers across the nation.  Schools close, teachers lose jobs,  classroom student counts expand and the demands of classroom instruction seem to multiply daily.  Though frustrated and tired, teachers manage to meet the unique needs of each student in their charge.

Do you feel swamped?  Do you have time for family and friends after meeting your teaching responsibilities?  Do you feel like you’re swimming or sinking like a stone?

What are your thoughts on the past school year?
