I wept the whole way home from school today.

We got some news.....I don't think I can write about it yet. Not in detail.

Don't worry, no one's dead, or mortally injured, or anything like that.

Just....a change. One that kills me. I'll probably lose around 75% of my kids come January.

I don't know how to do this. I don't know how to go in tomorrow and act like I know where the year is going, like everything's fine, like nothing happened.

I don't. It's not. It did.

The tears just keep falling. And I don't know how to stop them.

Holy crap, what's happening? Sounds like a crazy tough situation. Keep us posted. I know it must be terribly upsetting for you.

I can only imagine that it has something to do with "the budget cuts..." Always sad when the truth that schools are not always here for the kids - but, all too often are just trying to manage money.
Total bummer!

Thank you both - it's probably not as bad as I feel like it is right now. Or at least that's what I keep telling myself. I'll post more as soon as I can.

I know the feeling. That is the way I felt when they took the team teaching class away from me.

Just saw the post -- We're all thinking about you and pulling for you. Hang in there!!
