Two days ago I thought I'd never have the energy to teach again. That's how ill I was, and now today after considerable rest, lots of fluids, and mindless television shows, I'm feeling a lot better.
We do ourselves and our students an injustice if we go to school when we're really ill. It's best to take the time you need to recover and then you'll be raring to go again.
I write this so that the next time I get ill I'll read it and remember that we have to take care of ourselves if we want to be able to take care of others. Onward.
