Holy Biscuits – It’s August?

Airblaster AugustTeachers’ back-to-school is August 16, and the kids show up two days later. What in the heck.

As of today, I am excited and fearful for this year. I was worried that I was going to have three preps, but it got whittled down to two good ones: sophomore English, and creative writing! Yep, my creative writing course proposal successfully jumped through all of the hoops, and is gonna be a reality… Anyway, I’m excited at some new ideas that I have for my sophomores, and I took some excellent classes over the summer that gave me some great insight and resources. This will be a good year, I think.

That is, if…

See, the “fearful” part (which is also an “excited” part) comes from the fact that Mr. Bees interviewed for a teaching job at CHS. And we don’t yet know how it went. We’re supposed to find out “early this week.” The suspense is killing us.

We really, really need this. Without going into any details, it’s been a crap summer (with some very good notes in it, some lovely times) and Mr. Bees in particular really needs this good news in his life.

I have so much to do, and so little time in which to do it… gotta get offline and get to work.

The Bee’s Knees

This is the teaching journal of a student first-year second-year THIRD-YEAR (!!!) English teacher. I am writing this blog as a reflection for myself, a way to keep friends and family updated, and a sharing-ground between other educators online. I love comments!

I am striving to maintain anonymity on this blog so that I may more freely interact with my fellow edubloggers. If you know who I am, please help me protect my anonymity in your comments. I use pseudonyms or initials for everyone I write about to preserve their anonymity as well.
