Day 11

What is your favorite part of the school day and why?

Day 10
Random Facts:
1. I hate to exercise (but I'm working on that).
2. I very rarely listen to music and prefer NPR or podcasts.
3. When I get The New Yorker each week, I drop everything and read it cover to cover. 
4. I'm a vegetarian.
5. I have a growth mindset, so I don't mind making mistakes.

Bucket List:
1. Write a book.
2. Travel more.
3. Get healthy so I can live as long as possible.
4. Learn how to not hate cooking.

Three things I hope for this year:
1. More personal/relaxing time for myself.
2. Plan on the weekend and grade during the week.
3. Say NO more (it's working, and I already feel less stress!)

Two things that make me laugh/cry:
1. Untapped potential/kids very behind (cry)
2. Using technology with kids (laugh and cry)

One thing I wish more people knew about me:
1. I work this hard because I actually enjoy it!

Day 11
My favorite part of the school day is the end of it! I like to hang around for hours at the end of the day to catch up, plan the next day, and meet with students.  I like meeting with kids one on one because we can both focus. Room food and laptops also help. I find that whomever shows up gets a lot done, and I get to know the students better in small groups or individually.

  1. I wrote about the beginning of the day, but I love the end, too! It is so fun to share our workspace and time with students. I want to bring more of that feeling into the class periods. Great post.
