Let it rain! A monsoon outside! But, as they say, we need it.
Finding this much more difficult to do when it’s not an integral part of my classroom. When I’m in it, the ideas are flowing and I have some energy for it. Now, when the class weblog I’m keeping is basically there for kids who are absent, not as much to write. And still flooded by other stuff to do. Still doesn’t seem like others are finding the energy either. Terry hasn’t posted for a few weeks, Pat is kind of sporadic, Chris is drawing pictures…must be spring, or the end of the year, or fatigue, or…Not that I don’t believe any more, but it is hard right now.
And of course, there’s the yearbook which though finished is still getting most of my creative attention. Companies are fighting over this account, even though I can’t go anywhere for another year it seems. Might be just as well: First year to get my feet wet, second year to tweak, third year to create the masterpiece. I still cannot believe how far we came this year. And I really think we can take even more giant steps next year. I am so psyched!
