This week I would like you to use your imagination. You have just won the lottery and will leave your teaching post immediately to travel around the world. As you leave your keys you meet your replacement. You are asked to give this new teacher just ONE piece of advice. What would that be, and why? Enjoy your world expedition!

Blog Post - Week 7

I can't remember !! UgOh

I trying to keep all my due dates, but I honestly can't remember it I posted this week. I was trying to get the lab assignment in, my grades for a 12 week report card posted on time, and assignments for a sub, so I could take 1 day off to go out of town for a wedding. I know that sounds selfish, but so be it. It was a great weekend at Jekyll Island. The weather was great. I felt like it rejunvinated me. Now to plan lessons for the week, use the language of the standards more , and figure out how to continue to be engaging in the classroom. Hopefully in my advanced years I won't forget to go to school !

Emily you sound a lot like me. I glad you feel rejuvinated. Hopefully I can find some time to get rejuvinated. I'm sure you will become an excellent teacher in years to come. God Luck

Emily - this sounds like me too. I think taking on the teaching profession comes with accepting that you will forget something...I guess we should all hope it's nothing too important. I know that you've got things under control though. I am constantly forgetting to take roll, get new standards posted, etc. etc. etc. I actually forgot to post a response when I posted my blog entry - so here I am. oops! haha! At the end of the day, no matter what I've forgotten, no one has died and there is no money missing from my cash register. By the way, have you registered for spring semester, found an exceptional child course, posted this week's standards, and/or attended a professional development course? Just a friendly reminder....haha. But seriously, we should all have personal assistants.
