Grief and Impaired Concentration

Today, I’m really trying to focus on grading students’ assignments for my Advanced Placement high school students. I’m so behind on all of my responsibilities for teaching this course.

Thankfully, I’ve been granted an extension for my submission of students’ final grades. I have one more week until I need to complete this arduous task.

I simply can’t concentrate today, no matter how very hard I try to do so. I keep thinking about my mother, and how very much I miss her. My life will be radically altered without having her around.

I so want to be able to call my mother. Her voice was consistently reassuring to me. She was my very best cheerleader. I feel so very lost without her right now.
