I am so sorry that I have no amazing ideas or thoughts to post today. It has been a long day. I had a full day of teaching which included a Code Blue incident (a grade 7 boy broke his arm at lunch recess), this cause recess to end early with all the student ushered into their rainy day locations. Lunch was then extended into period 5 for 25 minutes while we waited for the ambulance...yes, I said waited for the ambulance. Almost 45 minutes in total. Crazy.
My after school remedial literacy class started today with a grade total of 6 out of 15 kids showing up. Great. That ran from 2:45 until 4:00, however, I had to duck out early at 3:30 to make it to my Mentorship Network meeting that ran from 4:00 to 7:00.
I must say though that reconnecting with my mentorship community was super invigorating and I am looking forward to re-reading my Mentoring Matters book by Bruce Wellman in anticipation of our spring conference. I am also hoping to get a copy of Fierce Conversations by Susan Scott. I immediately thought of my sister (and called her on my way home from my meeting to tell her) and the idea that we should read this book together and have a mini-book club to discuss it. She would LOVE it.
It is now 9:42, I have only been home for 3 hours of this entire day.
I. Am. Going. To. Bed.
P.S. What are your thoughts about "doggy day care"? I am thinking about putting my dog into it every other week for some socialization and exercise. Any good, or bad, experiences?
