So I’m Not Alone?

I recently came across this hilarious and oh-so-true take on the 5 Stages of Death and Dying, only in this case, it’s the 5 Stages of Grading. I don’t know one teacher who adores the drudgery of grading; in fact when I ask teachers what they like least, “Grading” is often the answer (along with a heavy sigh and often a handful of excuses.)

Excuse no more, my friends, because today I’ve discovered, we’re not alone. The hilarity of this post makes it feel almost — almost — ok that I have five sets of my own grading to do during this deceptively termed thing we like to call “vacation.”
