Like Riding a Bike

Although I missed my boys terribly, I got back into the classroom and it was like riding a bike. (Once you learn, it just comes right back.)

Mrs. Dunbar was back in full swing. My good friend Kim, and former teaching partner, left me easy peasy plans, along with duty (YUCK!) And in the afternoon Dawn also left me simple simple plans. But let me tell you; today I taught, I gave out instructions, I monitored and clarified, I answered, I observed, I double-checked for understanding, I strategically led problem solvers, and at the end of the day I am exhausted!!

If you have kids in school, be nice to your kids teachers. They really do work so very hard!

If you are one of my former teaching comrades, may the force be with you!! I'll see you next week.

How fun for you! I'm thinking of sub-ing too. It'd be kind of nice to relieve some of the financial pressures.

I still want to try to get together.

Did you end up registering for MAP?
