Weekly Takeaway: Adrenaline Rush Is Real
I know about adrenaline rushes. I get them when I play in tennis matches or when something is overall stressful. This week I think I have more confidence as I navigate the different rooms I work in throughout the day. I don’t have to question what is happening and what will be going on later. I can look at a schedule and have a sense of what will be happening without checking in.
This week I had many adrenaline rushes and I know this because I went the day without being hungry and then I come home and I crash. I’m back to Friday nights being my night to veg (unless I nap when I get home then I feel slightly MORE productive). As I write this I know my eyes are trying to close but my brain is working hard. I need to my brain to work so I stay awake.
If I get this much of a rush assisting I can’t imagine what it feels like when you are a lead teacher. It has been a really rewarding week. Other teachers are trusting me to teach kids in their classes and I am planning phonics for a group in our class. There is a part of me that knows I probably could have handled a lead teaching job this year but I am so grateful I get to experience and learn more before I take that next step.
