Prayers for a teacher who has just too much to do.
« on: September 20, 2010, 04:27:48 PM »
Hey guys, I would really appreciate your prayers. I am feeling really overwhelmed. This year my schedule look like this:
1. Pre AP Algebra II (enriched)
2. Pre Ap Algebra II (enriched
3. Algebra I (regular)
4. Math Lab (remedial)
5. Online Algebra I (lab setting)
6. Online Geometry (lab setting)
As you can see, within my schedule of six classes, I have five different topics to prepare to teach everyday. This is taking a great deal more time than you would think. Most teachers are preparing for one to two classes a day. On top of this I am a PLC (professional learning community) leader, which is like a step away from leader of a department, I am on the ELL (English Language Learners) team, and I teach credit recovery classes after school twice a week in order to earn a good wage. Finally, this is the year for me to produce a portfolio to move up a level as teacher and get a raise. 

With all of this going on, I just feel like I am overwhelmed and I can't even imagine what would happen if something else got added to my plate. Please pray for me that I have fortitude and perseverance.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Lord, have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Besides, that LORD have mercy and give this one wisdom.

Stands for "Advanced Placement".

It's supposed to be elevating a high school course to a college level for those of accelerated abilities.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
