Winding Down

School is almost over for the 2008-2009 year and I have to say it has been one of the best years in the 17 I have been teaching. I have developed, and solidified, some excellent relationships with colleagues and close friends. Some, of course, are both. The kids this year have worked harder as a group than any previous group I have had. The junior high kids have wanted to be challenged and have met every challenge with a smile. I don't want to hear anyone say that kids now days don't know how to work. I work with them 7 hours a day and I know they work! Our junior high kids are respectful, polite, and a pleasure to be around. I would like to thank our new principal, fellow colleagues, my wife and kids, and the students for a wonderful school year! I am already looking forward to next year.

Last Night of Dance

Tonight is my daughter's last night of dance for the year. It will be nice to have her home on Wednesday nights. The end of dance always signifies the coming of summer...bring it on! I can't wait to see her recital. I think she will do great.

Swine Flu

I am really tired of reading about...and hearing about the Swine Flu. Yes it is important but there are other things going on around the world also!

I had a great day at school today and the 7th graders finished their second podcast today. They have done a great job so far! Not many days left of school. I can't believe how fast the year has went!

Have a good one!

It sure is a dreary day today but the rest of the week looks like it is going to be killer. Tomorrow I have a podcast workshop in Edwards, IL (near East Peoria). It should be fun. I can't believe how close it is to the end of school!

I'm Back

Holy cow! It has been a few months since I posted last! I sure have lost track of time with all I have going on. Trying to keep up with Smartboard notes for all my books has me really busy. We have had a ton of meetings also. Anyway, it is nice to be back writing. The weather is getting nice and school is winding down. I definitely have Spring fever! I am looking forward to our summer trip to Disneyland and wrapping up all the meetings and such concerning the St. Francis Picnic.
