I’ve been not writing, again.
That’s really not that big of a deal since the readership of this blog has probably dropped to that of the local school newspaper. Probably even worse. Maybe I need a movie review section.
Or maybe that’s the way it goes with teachers. I’m backed up with my grading, behind in my planning, and overall just feeling like everything is a jumbled mess. Even Spring Break (which is this week) is kind of wonky with the fact that my wife threw out her back. She ran five miles Monday morning and now can hardly move. Backs are funky.
It took exactly 24 hours after I applied to learn that someone didn’t like me enough to let it be known to a lot of people. I contacted that person and they kindly discussed why they didn’t like me and I found that, like teaching, not everyone is going to be happy with everything. The difference is that, unlike the classroom, the detractors are given a bigger microphone within the athletic arena because some reason. I’m not entirely worried about it. I’ve been teaching for 13 years and I’m very confident that I do it pretty well. I’ve been a head coach now for twenty years and that means that it is engrained within my soul that what I do is good, fair, and right. And in the end, it’s the entirety of the job that matters, not just the coaching.
This was actually released the day the varsity job was flown within the district. They eventually rescinded the tweet and ignored my request for a source. Man. Oh yeah, spotlight.
So how’s your break?
