And a child shall lead them.

Man, I was at work for almost thirteen hours last Friday! Sometimes, I feel like I don't have a home-that I live at school or something-wait a second...

Seriously though, I'm sure that there are many out there who can either sympathize or empathize with me. What's the worst thing about the whole situation: Is it the skipped lunches? Is it the fact that when I'm not working on school work, I'm sleeping and when I'm sleeping, then I'm dreaming about my work? Or is it that after thirteen hours of working that I'm still behind?

So why do I carry on? Student X. Student X is that one out of my 150 kids that will spend long hours at school themselves. For example, this girl has been sick for three days, resulting in missing three in-class writing assignments. With my policy being that those assignments must be made up after school, she stayed for over an hour and finished the work. And on top of that--she left with a smile on her face. You know the ones that I'm talking about. They're the ones that come to school to learn and not to get the grade.

Now, I allowed her take a little more time than the students in class, but who cares?! I'll gladly do that for anyone who works hard with a cheerful disposition.

Oh by the way, I still hate the long hours. But, I'll just follow Student X's example.
