I feel a bit like taffy as I'm pulled in multiple directions.
What's a teacher to do?
It's time to narrow the path a bit and prioritize more.
As I think of this, I am imagining that big vat of Taffy In Provincetown--the colorful, sticky candy that's stretched and pulled in so many directions resulting in a small bites of chewy sweetness.
We all feel like taffy from time to time, and that's when it's time to focus your attention in ways that matter.
