How do I tell her? - May 15th 2012, 03:06 PM

Hello, how can I tell my teacher that I haven't touched my school work in like two days and that I'm really stressed.... I am really unsure of how to approach her on this, I mean she is nice and really understanding of my current place right now for being "under-pressure" but how do I tell her that I haven't worked in two days?!?!?

My school is a little different, I go to a private school, it's small and we sit in desks like little cubicals, and you work in work books called PACEs (go to google if you don't know what a PACE is)

Also for a better insight of how my school functions, go to google and look up school of tomorrow.... There you can see the work I do and a little video of the function of what my school does and how it works (for those who are interested in how my private school works)

Please forgive I went off on a random topic! Oh my I'm sorry!

But any advice please! I don't want to go up to her and just say "I haven't worked in two days, can I have a day off?" I don't want to say that at all. She is nice and everything but I just need help.... Also has any of you guys doer with this type of situation before?

I hope to get help on this, thanks!

"Hey, I've been really stressed lately, and it's been difficult for me to complete my school work. I haven't been able to concentrate at all over the past two days - I was hoping you could give me some support or advice on how to cope, focus, and catch up." Or something along those lines. Honestly, I wouldn't beat around the bush. I would just tell her what you told us, and I would tell her as soon as possible (so the problem doesn't get worse/you fall even further behind). Everyone has a rough day/week, and it seems like your teacher is very understanding of your situation. Communicate with her, and see if you can come up with a plan of some sort (ex. doing a little bit of extra work each day in order to catch up, meeting with her after school to catch up). If you want to take a day off, I would explain to her what you would use that day for, and how it would help you re-focus the following day. In my experience, there's a difference between taking a day off to sort through a stressful situation, and taking a day off to avoid the problem that has been created. Make sure you're taking a day off for the right reasons!

Hahaha wow... i used to go to a school like that. Paces... brings me back
.. anyway sorry for that. Just be honest. Back when i did it you could make up any work very fast anyway so it shouldnt be a problem. I used to do a weeks worth over the weekend and just take it slow during the week.

Ah, yes. I'm not enjoying them tho...

Sadly, I can't get the day off, she said no and that is a reward if you are finished with your work, she said that if I finish it over the weekend I might be allowed to take off a few days next week. But she smiled when she said that and then left the room. Guess, I might be able to finish up with my books.
