I genuinely want to know. Just feel like catching up with you guys tonight. :)
My day was long with no actual break. Bus evacuation drill first thing this morning. I rushed back inside to teach my 10s first block. Then, I had sub coverage to work on IPPs second block (some of the 8s were terrible for the sub despite warnings - there will be consequences). I had supervision at lunch and stuffed a sandwich in my face just in time to teach my 8Honours class. Finally, it was back to work on IPPs during my prep last block. Didn’t even have time to answer emails from parents until the end of the day. Stayed after to do some photocopying and then spent my evening marking. I did treat myself to a brownie once I finished all my work this evening, so that was a plus.
I really needed a naptime after lunch in high school… man. :P There should be like, one-time workshops on life skills you need to succeed though.
I am kinda into this. All Virginia students have to take a finance course to graduate, but a life skills class would be nice.
Who wouldn’t like a nap every day?
All students in Alberta (Canada) are required to take CALM ( Career and Life Management) in order to get their high school diploma. It covers healthy social/emotional/psychological/relationship choices, finance/budgeting, job and interview skills, and more. Students don’t usually take it seriously and often take it through distance learning or outreach, so it doesn’t mess up their timetables. It’s a great course though.
I had a hugely productive weekend!
- went for brunch
- saw Gone Girl
- ran some errands (bridal shower gift, toiletries, etc.)
- attended a bridal shower
- did a mountain of laundry, including putting away everything that is not hanging to dry
- marked 3 class sets of short story reading comprehension questions
- finished marking a geography assignment
- marked a set of Social Studies question
And all of next week was planned and handouts were photocopied before I left school on Friday.
I still feel behind though. I have to write my Professional Growth Plan for the year, mark 4 class sets of paragraphs, and a set of reading comprehension questions before Thursday. Tomorrow evening I have roller derby practice and a meeting and Thursday evening I’m going to see Ryan Adams, so all my work needs to get done during my prep time or on Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Wish me luck! I’m hoping to get it all done before PD on Friday and (Canadian) Thanksgiving this upcoming weekend.
After spending my day eating delicious food (brunch) and seeing a great movie (Gone Girl), I’m now spending my evening marking.
