Can you get some standing floor fans to at least circulate the air......... cement them to the floor...... .
I am sorry your anxiety goes up but hate it would be normal for anyone trying to teach in an overheated room with sweat dripping in your eyes.
Good luck and I will send you some cold air from Minnesota.

It's not petty to be worrying about work or what you percieve to be "small" in the face of world poverty etc. It is your reality and it's upsetting you..you know how they say think global, act local, well the same applies internally. You need to deal with your anxiety internally before you can fix things out side of your self..or am I just getting crazy philosophical because it's monday?!! I digress..
I think what I'm trying to say, is don't beat yourself up, and don't feel guilty. I have an important "meeting" next monday and I have been stressing about it for five weeks. I know it's irrational but there you go...my mind will take something and run with it. I live in Adelaide S.A. and we have been having crazy weather here. 37° and windy on Sat and today drizzle, humid and 23°..my body doesn't know what season we are in. P.S. No S.A. jokes okay? I know them all!!!!
Thanks, guys! it was so hot! i ended up giving the students pretty basic work cos none of us were in the mood to stretch our brains, myself included!
Meg, no S.A jokes from me, ive always wanted to see the city of churches- i was meant to be a bridesmaid there last yr (im a sydney sider), but i was in hospital recovering from unexpected, yet pretty major sinus surgery.
I swear the heat makes me cranky and edgy , it was only 15degrees with rain and hail last week- whats going on?!
Thanks for the support, i promise im not a drama queen- just overly sensitive to my surroundings... eek.
So glad you made it through the day. You don't sound like a drama queen at all..just someone suffering in the heat with inadequate air-con. It would stress me out too.
I lived in Sydney for 8 years, I'm originally from Canberra (no jokes about that either now!!)lol) and I hope to move back there mid next year. Most of my friends/family/support is there and Adelaide is nice, but the people can be a little bit xenophobic..everything is "proudly south aussie" Puke!
It's going to be 38° here on thursday..crazy..I spent today at my desk loaded down with heat packs.
Stay well my fellow aussie friend. We are here to listen and support K?
