Aging Teacher Haiku Reflection: It's Wearing Me Out

am i working more
than my students are these days
it's wearing me out

Those of you that have been here for awhile know that I teach 7th and 8th grade math and science. Chew the Fat has been my creative outlet for so long, however I've mostly kept the education side out of things.

This haiku habit has been so transformation for me, that I am going to merge some of my "teacher life" into the mix.  I am also going to turn 40 this year hence the name Aging Teacher Haiku Reflection.

As a teacher I absolutely believe in the power of education.  I also work with amazing teachers who exhibit extreme amounts of dedication to their craft.

I think this first teacher haiku is a sign I need more balance in my life.

Peace to you.
