Day 307- Team 8-1/8-2 Lunch

I think it should be quite clear by now that I adore my job.  However, I also cherish my break time for lunch.  Sometimes being with other adults for a little while is just what I need... so we can act like 8th graders. 

Teaching can be an isolating profession, as I spend my day surrounded by kids who are half my age (literally).  I adore them too, but let's face it... they watch Hannah Montana and listen to Justin Beiber.  I need some time with my colleagues now and then! 

This is a long and tough week with parent teacher conferences and a 3-in-1 kind of day tomorrow that will be a bit of a frenzy.  Our students are acting the way you might expect students to act during this type of week.  I was getting a wee bit irked by the time 1 o'clock rolled around, and I was happy for a break to give myself an attitude adjustment.  We all started lunch with a little bit of venting, and then we were off.  If today's lunch was a game of Jeopardy, the categories might have gone something like, "Inappropriate Hand Gestures," "Things That Make Me Giggle Because I Have an Eighth Grade Sense of Humor," and "That's What She Said."  Lots of chuckles.

Thank you, Team 8-1/8-2 Lunch, you made my day.
