Well, I'm not a big fan of teaching Summer Bridge. It's fairly easy money, and it's nice to meet some kids, but I've now taught the same thing eight consecutive times. Tomorrow, I'll have done it twice more, meaning I'll be at ten time total. Talk about boring.
Plus, it's just stressful to teach new kids every single period. They're all cycling into my classroom and out of my classroom, and I've learned less than ten names, so it's impossible to gain any sort of relationship or repoire with the kids. It makes me long for the school year, when I can see them every day, and start to get to know them. Now, none of that is happening. I sit there and talk, give them activities, call on them, and the next thing I know, they're gone and I have to do it all over again. Again, talk about boring.
At least it wasn't 106 degrees heat index today. Still hot, but somewhat more bearable. Or maybe it's just because I wore cargo shorts.
