Give me permission to call in sick tomorrow?

I am not sick per se but just worn out from my class. Roughest class I have had ever. Everyone comments on what a group I have. I am tired and out of patience and just need a day at home to relax and do nothing. I feel guilty though!

I know if I go in I will not be at my best and my students deserve better. Earliier this week I was nauseous and hot/cold. So I do think I was/am fighting something but by no means am I 'sick'.

I have tons of unused sick days so that's not an issue. And I actually left sub plans on my desk when I left because I was just so done at the end of the day.

You have my permission. Guilt is a useless emotion. Take a day off. Your class will be fine and the world will still be turning.

I hereby grant you permission to stay home and take care of yourself.

I stayed home today, like you I was just worn out. I felt a little guilty but remembered the world and my classroom will keep going if I take a much needed and well deserved break.

Listen to your body...it starts off by feeling worn out, then next thing you know, you are fighting a flu. Don't feel guilty!

The kids will be alright. Why sacrifice your health and happiness? There is no good reason for doing so. Rest

A mental/emotional health day sounds like it's in order.

You are physically rundown and likely fighting the flu so you must stay home and feel zero guilt and zero regret!

I had this class year I am pretty sure so from personal experience I double insist that you take time to recharge your physical and emotional health from time to time.

Mental Health Day

I did that in Nov. for the same reason, class from ___ stressed etc. but to alive my stress, I had to get a shot that required me to see the Dr., so I made an apt. for right in the middle of the day so that there would be no way I could go to work 1/2 day.
Still felt guilty but less so...Of course my problem is I use 99% of my sick days for being sick (really sick!) so I didn't have them to spare but I just had had it...

If you have plenty of days, go for it!!! Mental days are needed!

If you drop dead tomorrow, by this coming Tuesday, your replacement will be pick.

Don't kid yourself. The higher ups are ONLY looking out for themselves. And the kids....meh. Especially the if your class usual SOP is hot mess.

Loyalty is for Golden Retrievers.

Me, burnt out? Nah....

I had the worst sinus headache all night and did not sleep well at all! I could "made it through the day." But woke up and would not have been myself. Therefore I said to boyfriend, "F, it. Someone else is doing my job today."

Now, today, Friday, I am back at work and feeling mostly better. DO IT and love it!
