ten things tuesday

Ten random things.

1) I thought I hit snooze on my alarm this morning but turned it off. Then dozed. I was an hour later than I usually am but managed to rush in the door before the attendance bell rang! Colleagues and kids were laughing at my flurried entrance.

2) And even though I didn't have my morning ritual/organizational time, I had a really good day.

3) I lesson planned through the end of January.

4) I taught myself a new technology called Flipgrid. Flipgrid is a video response platform where educators can have online video discussions with students or other educators. Teachers can provide feedback to students AND better yet students can provide feedback to one another.

5) I liked my outfit today. I felt comfortable and warm but not too warm.

6) This evening there is a varsity girls basketball game that I'm going to watch--I helped hype the team up and I want to be able to debrief tomorrow! I should say that I have several starting players in my classes and they received a little pep-talk from me for the game tonight is with the arch-rival school!

7) I submitted my teaching certificate renewal papers yesterday. I think this might be my final certificate. Could retirement really be near?

8) I overheard a couple of students talking about me in the back of the classroom--they were saying that I genuinely care about them. I was so touched and flattered. I do genuinely care!

9) I need to stop buying yarn. And clothes. And books. Maybe I should put myself on a shopping freeze. Ugh.

10) Let's take a moment to appreciate George:

You sound like a woman who has had a very good day! How cool that you got to overhear your students and find out that they realize what a good teacher you are. Retirement is near? I am extremely jealous!

Hello, George!

Sounds like you had an awesome Tuesday. I hope the momentum carries you through the week.
