Grading Schoolwork

I’m grading the children’s schoolwork. When they make great progress I’m excited. When they skip assignments, I get a little angry. When they get the same thing wrong over and over and over again, I get frustrated. When they do better than I expected, I am surprised and happy. When I get behind on grading and it takes me forever to get through it all, I get bored and restless. I never expected grading school work to be such an emotional roller coaster!
