Sure, I could describe the pervasive cloud of apprehension that hangs over staff and students each morning to the point that it's difficult to breathe. I could explain how everyone is so drained in the afternoon that neither the students nor I really feel up to doing much learning during our brief, hurry-up-and-get-started-because-class-is-almost-over-even-though-we-just-got-here time together. I could talk about how one high-stress snapshot is not really a great indicator of a student's progress or achievement.
But instead, I'm just not going to say anything. You all know how I feel, and you feel it too.
Instead, I'm going relax and enjoy reading all of your posts. I'm going to play some games on my iPod, stretch out on the bed and read a book, listen to some music while fixing dinner, and watch that calming video my sweet husband found for me. And not say anything at all.
