This isn't a teacher blog, but it is a blog authored by a teacher. So of course, sometimes a little school is going to sneak in. Now, how to allow some blog to sneak into my school filled life?
We have a new reading curriculum that is overwhelming and daunting and I finally allowed myself to really work with it hoping it would get easier but it's still overwhelming and daunting.
This is a blog written by a teacher who is not making any effort to edit the above run-on sentence.
My class is great, my math class is a puzzle--fitting for math, our new principal is kind and funny, our meeting schedule is full, tutoring hasn't started yet (how will I do that too?), student council is just gearing up, science--please don't ask me about science, sped schedules keep changing, I have a wonderful aide ("para"), lunch always at my desk or laptop or white board, oh--an interactive white board--how to use it, grad classes being sought, and recess.
That's not all...
My one goal endeavor, and I have not been successful yet, is to live in the moment. I find I'm always thinking of what's next (ala President Barlett), and I'm constantly tripping over my words (ala not anything written by Aaron Sorkin), so I want to slow down and be.
It ain't happening.

All in all, all is well in B town.
Waiting for a getaway to W state if even for a few hours. Stay tuned...
