Hello, all. Happy 2014! I am struggling to prepare for tomorrow's first day back to school (while also keeping my fingers crossed for snow days!), but I am also quite excited to get back. It was a wonderful break, though. Lots of reading, sleep, and good times with friends and family.
Classroom resolutions: keep more on top of grading, try to plan as far ahead as I can, and cut myself some slack--although I've been teaching a long time, the first year at a new school is tough! I'm trying to develop some better systems for next year as well, in terms of writing and vocabulary instruction.
While I read a few grown up books over break, I also got to tear through these excellent, engaging YA novels. A handful of my kids have read them, but now I have a few more copies to pass along to them.
Enjoy the rest of term 2, everyone!
