You know what's a great feeling? Getting up early (I know, I know, stay with me here), getting a job done around the house that'd been looming over your head for a long time, then coming back in the house and, with a glance down the hall at your room, knowing that there are two beautiful ladies asleep in your bed (wife and newborn daughter -- y'all behave, now!). Awesome feeling of peace.
Must needs go back up to school, for yesterday we were struck by the computer demons: with T-2 days until school starts, no more than five teachers (out of upwards towards 100) could sign in to and thus gain any access to their computers. Thus, how many syllabi got written, approved and printed off? Right! Not a whole heapin' heckofalot. Thus, I go, after having revamped said syllabus from home and printed it off, both to get it approved by the principal as suitable for copying and mass distributing to hoards of delinqu--I mean, classes of learners, excuse me--and to finish decorating my (new and much larger!) room in time for Monday.
Am excited, however, because I get to try out TPRS for the second time this coming year; looking forward to making improvements and seeing even more of an increase in learning happening than what I saw last year!
