3 a.m.... I'm wide awake. PARCC testing begins in 6 hours. All possible scenarios play out in my head. For some reason, I am completely stressed out. Even knowing that most of what I am stressed about is out of my control, I still cannot relax. I toss and turn and my husband wakes up and tries to help me relax.
He asks me about who is more stressed out? Me? Or the kids taking the test? Definitely me. Our teachers have done an amazing job of keeping our students positive and relaxed about the whole situation. While we were busy keeping others calm, no one was calming us!
Fast forward to 11 a.m.... besides a couple minor glitches, everything runs smoothly. Totally exhausted, I breathe a sigh of relief. I know others had trouble sleeping last night - so here's hoping we all sleep soundly tonight :)
