Sometime this spring, I applied for a scholarship to be part of the 40-Hour Teacher Workweek Club, a professional development club created by Angela Watson.
I am a workaholic. I work all the time. I ignore my family a lot. I love my job and I wish I could do it better. But I need to spend more time with my little family before my girls grow up and leave the nest. No matter how much I really want to do my job well.
I don’t know if I can work 40 hours. I work a lot. A lot a lot. Even when I’m sleeping.
My friend Mary told me this morning that maybe I could cut down to a 60-hour workweek.
Next week I’m going on vacation. So maybe I can put it on hold for that. We’ll see.
In the meantime, I’m going to set my brain to work on prepping for an easy peasy start to the new year, despite teaching a new class and trying to flip the content. (That means putting the lecture outside school hours so we can focus on practice in class. More time for students to get the help they need!)
We’ll see, we’ll see.
It’s a lofty goal.
