so the small surgery went fine and my class survived. ahhh! i can feel a little more relaxed now! i was a little self-conscious about going into the classroom with an alvin (the chipmunk) cheek- swollen from yesterday. surprisingly they did not say a word until i acknowledged it. secretly, i was hoping to gain some sympathy votes from students and have a well-behaved, quiet class for the entire day and i can't complain- they did sympathize with me a bit, which was nice. it does say a lot about how much one values one's job when you are willing to go in and teach to a class of 22 fifth graders, looking like a chipmunk and exhausted by pain killers.
