So, it is true - I've been super lame about writing here as of late. so sorry to my myriad fans - I have no good excuses, just lame ones. I am making yet another effort to be more consistent with this - prehaps as a reflective tool with my teaching? With my life? We'll see where this takes me.
I have a student teacher this term, and he's great - I mean, sure, he's new, and some of the classroom management issues (which remind me WAY too much of my first years) drive me a bit nuttier, but really, I am confident that he will be a fine educator. I love having a student teacher, because I learn so much - both from him, and from the time I have to do professional reading and research - the things I've learned just in the last 8 weeks!! Amazing stuff!
It seems I will be getting a classroom set of computers before the end of the school year, and I've been spending a lot of the time preparing for that. Check out my new Wiki and see what you think - offer up some comments!
Just keep swimming!
