I just received a phone call from one of my assistant principals asking that I attend a meeting in the morning. Without hesitation, I lied. I told her that I was out of town. I panicked, I was filled with anxiety, my mind screamed, "No way! Forget it!" I unflinchingly lied and felt a wave of relief. This I take to be a bad sign. If I can't stomach a meeting how will I react to a classroom of students? The only positive from the call was that I now know what I'll be teaching. Lying, dear reader, too is an aspect of depression.
