Mental health day
I'm not exactly sick, but I'm not exactly well either.
It's really difficult to find a sub who can teach math.
I'm not going to have another chance to have an "easy" teaching day (all classes are taking tests tomorrow) any time soon, and I KNOW I'm going to need a day off before Christmas break. Definitely over-exerted myself during the 1st quarter, and haven't quite recovered.
Thus, I'm taking my first official mental health day tomorrow.
Will still go in, after school, to get stuff done. I might even go in the morning too. That's dedication, right? When I'm not feeling well and I still want to work?
My own health means I have more energy to take care of my students. So there.
