I just haven't felt like writing - sorry! Definitely busy, in many good ways, and definitely still the best job ever. We started a unit that connects informational text reading with writing fan letters to Olympic athletes.
Oh, today I was missing for 10 minutes. We have a 2-day schedule, and as a lab teacher, I live by "Day 1 or Day 2" because I see students every other day. Well, for 7 minutes, I lost track of which day, showed up to lunch duty, said hi to a few students whom I knew, then realized they're not in my lunch duty, jogged 3 minutes back to my classroom, where a teacher was calling the office looking for me and my 10 students were waiting. The first student who saw me huffing and puffing up the stairs said, "There she is!" A boy said, "Darn!" A girl said, "I thought you were dead!" Another girl said, "I thought you fell down the stairs!"
