Seriously. I don't.
Part of me even considered using a sick day today just because I felt like staying at home. However, it feels like bad karma to do that because as soon as I claim "sick" then I'm sure to actually get sick. But I really don't have any desire to teach today.
I subbed for another class this morning for a sick colleague and the class, like yesterday's, was a nightmare. These two classes are college prep courses, so the students lack many desirable qualities: skill, motivation, and maturity. Thus, they are late, disruptive, and inattentive. The only good thing about subbing for these classes is that it has helped me appreciate the classes I do have (I may complain about my students from time to time, but on the whole, they really do work hard for me and I think I am lucky to have students who, in general, appreciate my classes and the work we do in them) -- however, that doesn't necessarily make me want to teach today.
Granted, in my own two classes this afternoon, I get to teach far more interesting material (we're covering Sylvia Plath's poem "Daddy") than I got to teach this morning (I got to teach them about sentence fragments -- not so much fun), but again, just don't feel like doing it.
Anyone else feeling the "blah" of Tuesday today? Is there a holiday coming up soon? I need a long weekend or something.
