The Long and Boring Day!

My day is to be sung to the tune of the Beatles song, "The Long and Winding Road." It goes something like this. The Long and Boring Day....that makes me insane. Will come around each year....before they graduate in May. I want to just shed was a boring day! I had to proctor the AHSGE - or the graduation exam today. It is the most boring thing to do in the world. The Administrator...reads the directions....verbatim....and I do what he/she tells me to do. The first eternity of the morning....was the demographics section. You would be surprised at how many kids don't know how to bubble in their names, and other information. While the Administrator reads the directions to the kids I walk around the room and make sure they are doing what they are supposed to be doing. If not...I am to show them the error of their ways. After demographics....we begin the first section of the test.....this is not a timed thing....but at the 90 minute mark.....they take a stretch and bathroom break. The Admin cannot leave the room unless a school official stands in for them. The proctor (that was me) gets to walk big boys and girls to the restrooms...and then escort them back to the testing site. Then....we our case...that did not happen. At 11:00 we still had 5 of them had only done 2/5 columns. An official administator came and took them to the consolidation we could release the rest of the kids to regular classes. Regular classes....that is a joke too. I have 2nd block I will only see my first block Spanish II kids on Weds. and Thursday. The rest of the week I will see my third block Spanish II and my fourth block Spanish I classes. It is the end of the grading period....but we can't give tests...because we are testing. What a glorious week. I dread this week each year more than anything I can please say a prayer for me....that the kids survive this week.....and that I survive this week too. I keep telling myself....that Spring Break is almost here....and there is no place like home.....

Just look for the brighter side of life. You could be working in a department store with a lot of grumpy customers that do nothing but complain. Thank goodness for your education and you do not have to work retail. I appreciate the people that do work retail. It is a very hard job.
Maybe the rest of the testing will go by fast and then next week is break time. YEA YEA YEA
