First Day Back!!! February 23, 2009

It’s the first day back to school—and I’m still posting!  What do you make of that?  Maybe I’ve gotten into a groove . . .

Actually, I’m just SO relieved.  This was the teachers’ first day back from February vacation and it was a Professional Development Day, which meant it was my job to provide that “insightful” PD first thing this am, 7:30 am that is!  I feel so grateful that they were an accepting, wonderful crowd, as I presented some of the latest research-based concepts on teaching and learning—and gave them a chance to try out some of the Math problem-solving strategies themselves.

I know from personal experience that we teachers can sometimes be the worst audience and today, that wasn’t the case!  I feel invigorated for the week, grateful for the opportunity, and ready for our students tomorrow!  Hope they enjoyed one extra day with their families.  The only thing better about tomorrow is that our kids will be there!

Off and running . .  . hope your week’s off to a great start, too!

    Jena,

    You’re always so positive . . . now to find out if we’re actually related or if our families just naturally have so much in common!

    Ruth,

    When I get my degree, I’ll know just who to go to with all of my questions! *grin*
