Open Mic

I just want to share my excitement about the upcoming winter break. I have been counting down the days since we came back from the Christmas holidays. I am also happy that I have Mock Trial Regional competitions this weekend. It is about to be over and I can get part of my life back. I love my students that participate, but it is just so time consuming. I can't wait to see everyone on the 23. I really miss you guys.
