GAH, I need to vent. Sometimes I really despise my propensity for getting overly emotional about a situation. I think it stems from years and years of bottling emotions as a child because now, it takes virtually nothing to get my tears flowing and then I can't shut them off.
Today was the last day of teaching for my Spring semester of Kindermusik and it's sad because I get so attached to the infants & toddlers (and parents) in my classes. It breaks my heart that in some instances, this might be the last time I see them because they either move on to a different teacher or they leave the program totally. It's the 1 aspect of teaching that I will never be happy about. So, I'm already emotional about that fact this week.
And then, last night I received a call from the woman who will be Little A's Pre-K teacher in the Fall at her new school. And it broke my heart. It wasn't the teacher that I requested and to say that I'm upset about this turn of events would be the understatement of the year. It's not that I have anything against this new teacher, but her classroom decor leaves a LOT to be desired, especially compared to the classroom that Big A has been in this year. And Little A was so excited about having Big A's teacher as her own.
After the crappy year that Little A has had at her old preschool, I feel like she is yet again getting the short end of the stick and it makes me so angry. And the worst part about it is that I'm pretty sure there's not a damn thing I can do about getting her teacher changed. Man, I hate all of the drama surrounding school issues. I don't know how my parents survived it.
