I am not back to 100%… nor am I back to 75%… but I HAVE to go to school today. Not only do my kids need me to teach them some things before their testing this week, but I also have to finish up a little research project I did with some students. Oooo and I can’t forget my night class – attendance is mandatory!
Today I have to suck it up and do my job. I must channel my inner Super Teacher.
I have to be the best teacher I can be, irregardless of my health. I know I have bronchitis, but the flu might have also been there. The past four days I felt worse than I did the week of my wedding – and I felt reaaaaalllyy bad that week. If I was getting married this past weekend, I can’t imagine how I would have been able to get myself off the couch.
I know I am being a whiny baby – but everyone has warned me that first year teachers catch everything. Since I started, I have had my headaches, sniffles, and tummy rumblings – but this was the worst. The saddest part = it’s not over. Flu season hasn’t even hit where I live and where I teach. Hopefully, since I may have just had it, I won’t catch the little devil bug once it comes around.
I take my vitamins, drink Emergen-C, keep my room clean/sanitized, and have taught my students to use a tissue, not a sleeve. How can I fight the germies?!
