Funny Teacher Story

Ok, I admit it, I'm in waaaay over my head. Teaching summer school for the district, taking a doc class (with a 20 pg. paper due in a couple of weeks), and teaching a college class. Not only that, grading papers, answering emails.....yeah.

This morning, I'm in line at the water fountain with my class (K-1st grade). I always count when kids are getting a drink or they tend to stay there for 20 minutes while the people in line behind them wither away. So, I'm counting backwards from ten. And this kid says, "You're counting backwards!" I said, "Yep, and it's your turn, do you want me to count forwards or backwards?" He says "I want you to count in Spanish!"

Church~Old Style

We went to church with my in-laws this morning. I've been lots of places in my 42 years and love where we're at now, but a Church of Christ a cappella rendition of "The Old Rugged Cross" can still give me goosebumps!

On another note: I begin my June work/school marathon tomorrow. Probably won't be by much, but I'll check in. Have a great summer!

National Spelling Bee

I was listening to Air1 while watching A at the skatepark this afternoon. They were having people call in to do an impromptu spelling bee in honor of the National Spelling Bee finals on TV tomorrow night. The words were like: onomatopoeia, pfefferneus (which I can't find the correct spelling of....Seth?), and some other word I'd never heard of.
I am not smarter than a fifth grader.

Wind Up Sushi

How's this!? Great, right? I know it looks like a piece of french toast, but it's supposedly egg sushi. A great gift from my secret pal this year.

You probably won't see much of me for June. I am overbooked, as usual! I'll try to pop in now and again to let you know I'm alive!
