how many hats do you wear?
i have been teaching for the past three years and in these past three years i have learned some amazing things. i have also met some amazing people. while teaching these past few years i have worn various different hats. what kind of hats you ask? i am the head volleyball coach (rule #1 is don't hit me with the ball!), assistant softball coach, english department head, remedial english teacher and on grade level english teacher, building leadership committee member, vice president of facality advisory comittee (drafted not volunteered!), yearbook advisor, and those are just the ones that are ongoing. my school is understaffed, underfunded, and underappreciated by the district. we are supposed to close in a few years to become an elementary school due to the MAPS project (which stinks!) and it upsets me. i teach some of the greatest kids ever and we are one of the few schools not overcrowded. this is not a woe is me post this is just a how many hats do you wear post? what are you actively involved in at school? do you wish you could do more or less? sometimes i feel like i don't get to see my husband (and we haven't even been married a year yet) but he gets that my job right now is very taxing. i love him for that understanding. :)
