Death by Ennui...

is how I'm slowly killing my students.

Poor kids. Maybe their teacher can find some inspiration soon.

I gave my night students the dumbest writing topic tonight. I was barely a mile from the school, on my way home, when the revelation hit me that I need some more engaging ideas for them or we will not make it through the quarter, let alone the rest of the year.

Things are only slightly better with my other classes.

This isn't a rookie issue.

It's definately an issue that experienced, near burned-out teachers experience.

Is there some sort of pill I can take to bring back some creativity to my craft?
