Another time to resolve to do better.
Better reach my ESL students.
Better prepare my lessons.
Better stay caught up on grading.
Better get everything ready for my long-term sub.
Better perfect the Yearbook.
Better keep personal and private lives separate.
Better pass that f-ing PDD!
Last week we had a couple of pointless meetings, and a bit of time to prepare for the return of students. I succeeded in moving all of the clutter from the classroom into my office. Now I just need to get the office organized. Eventually.
I had two sets of students on Friday, as that is our "jump-start" day for freshpersons. I have to say, as much as I was dreading returning to work this fall, seeing their excited faces gave me a bit of hope. They were interested and much more motivated than the students I had last year. I'm hoping that this lasts the year, but that largely depends on how I address the curriculum.
One more better: better try to keep track of my experience this year.
