A teacher's summer: attend workshop, reflect on old stuff from last year, plan for the year using scope and sequence using new curriculum, shop for bargain deals to replenish supplies, attend another workshop, shop for new supplies needed for new curriculum, start planning lesson plans for new year overview for new curriculum, etc.....
Yes, this is my summer so far. Then throw in two step kids and discovering you have iron-deficiency anemia....yes, it's been a busy summer! Also add in the fact that a requirement of my first workshop was for me to solicit a piece of my writing for publication, and so now I barely have time to breathe. The piece originally submitted was actually rejected because it was too expository a piece for the web.
However, the bug had bit. I decided to write a second piece, and it was accepted, and hence the title to this blog entry.
Now, I'm hooked. Check out the piece! I'm pretty pleased with it, but I could be a bit biased.
Let me know what you think. Thanks!
