Today I stayed at school until 7:30 to finish grading the kids' Close Reading essays. I grade using turnitin.com, so the kids will actually be able to see their grades tonight.
I still have to grade tests, independent reading projects, and two essays' worth of rewrites before grades are due Friday afternoon.
O, I also have to pack up every single damn thing in my classroom for the third year in a row. Hopefully there won't be a flood this time.
Now, I am going to bed, because the idea of actually sitting up straight is making me cry on the inside and moan a little on the outside.
