An entry just for the sake of a new entry

Teaching is a LOT of work. I knew I would be busy with lesson planning and grading, but this is nuts! I've cut my lesson planning time down substantially but grading papers is such a drag!! It seems to never end, and then when a new week begins, it starts all over again.

Yesterday I had to record one of my lessons. I watched some of it last night, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Aside from my usual oddities like speaking in random accents, pulling weird faces, and messing up words, I think I look pretty decent as a teacher. My final observation in this setting is on Thursday, but I am not too worried about it. Nothing seems as scary as having the principal come in for an observation ;) Bring it on, ASU Supervisor. Do your worst. I got this.


  1. You are amazing! I LOVE how often you update you blog.I agree about the whole consuming thing. I wonder what happens when we burn out completely though? I love you. Happy Dr. Seuss' Birthday!

  2. I've been wondering that too! Me thinks a break down is in order...maybe that's when we're supposed to run to the school bathroom and bawl our eyes out???
