Well, first day of teaching down- only 179 days left! HaHa- no really, today went pretty good and I think my classes are going to be OK. I still have 3 more classes to meet tomorrow (I teach on an AB Block Schedule, so I see different kids every other day), but anyway, hopefully all those kids were as delightful as today's, and I can get through another school year relatively unscathed.The only blip in my day was that our assistant principal of curriculum came and asked me to drop my Young Adult Literature course and teach a Make-up English class instead- which is basically a throw-back for kids who have failed an English class and need the credit. I of course said that I would teach it, and I start on Thursday, so tomorrow will be spent scurrying around trying to get a skeleton of a schedule figured out. The good news is the class does not have a required curriculum, so I can basically teach whatever I want- and I'm gonna! Swine Flu essay and Secret Life of Bees, baby! (k- that was a kinda dorky, English teacher-ish thing to say)
I am, however, exhausted! You would not believe how much talking all day for 45-60 minutes straight after not really doing that all summer long can tire you out! I mean seriously, I feel like I could fall asleep standing, right at this moment!
(Ali must be exhausted from her day at daycare too, because she went to bed about 6:15 tonight!)
So ya, hope all are well out there... if my blogging gets (more) sparse, it's cause my butt is busy and tired- I'm back to the working world, people!
Oh, and I wanted to share some of Ali's 1 year pics- sorry about the big ole-copyright across um, but you get the idea of how stinking cute my girl is! What a ham!
