Do you want to know a secret? Do you promise not to tell? Now, that you are all singing The Beatles lyrics along with me, I’ll tell. Yesterday was my birthday. I turned the big five-oh. I kept it very hush-hush at school. Not because I’m freaked out about turning old!!! But mainly because this is such a busy and stressful time of the year. Unlike most teachers, I know ahead of time most of the students that I will have next year, because as a special education teacher, I attend their transition meetings. Which is some cases is good and in some not. Let’s just say, the other 6th grade special education teacher and I are not looking forward to next year. We have some really scary kids coming up. Violent, aggressive kids. I keep trying to tell myself that it will be okay, but it’s hard when you start worrying about something in May, that’s not going to happen until August. So, with all this on my mind, I didn’t really want to mess with the whole birthday thing. Kate, my darling daughter home from college for the summer, made me the most amazing flourless chocolate cake, which I took some pictures of and as soon as I get them off my camera and on to the computer, I’ll show you!
So, let’s try to think positive. Yes, I’m old, but so are Sharon Stone and Geena Davis, to name a few (yes, I actually googled “celebrities over 50″).
Also, there is one week of school left!!!!
