Teaching Diary 8(-9)

August 13, 2013

Today was the first of a two-day, district-wide new teacher orientation. We had some technology training and two sessions with Dr. Adam L. Saenz, an educational psychologist and fantastic speaker (he was able to silence the audience and even elicit a few tears). He is author of the book The Power of a Teacher, which I purchased. More on him tomorrow when I don’t wait so late to write (for a change). I’m also dealing with some family drama and apartment hunting in the midst of this new teaching adventure.

I was helping Becca’s hypothetical child write a paragraph for homework and told him that it needed a conclusion sentence. Yet I find them frustratingly hard to write myself… as this sentence proves.

    Glad you are doing well! I can’t believe I go back on Monday. How’s the classroom shaping up? I want to see pictures!! 😀

    My last sentence is always, “The end.” 😉

I teach, drink coffee, and occasionally write stuff.
