The thing we don’t like to talk about in teaching is time.
Simply put there is not enough of you to go around.
It’s a delicate balancing act.
There’s always a child that needs a conversation RIGHT NOW.
The child who you are talking to now.
The child you want to be talking to.
The tasks you have to do.
The tasks you’d love to be doing.
The tasks you need to do RIGHT NOW.
The tasks sitting in your inbox when you dare to open it after a rough day.
What ball do you decide to drop?
Which child needs to wait?
What task can I put off?
What tasks do I simply not do?
What ball do I drop?
