Since I last posted, there have been lots of changes (and more coming!) I am reminded of the Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times.
It looks like I am moving to the eighth grade. That, along with having to relearn the whole Common Core stuff, is making it more stressful this summer. I am not even sure what my room will be or whether I have Algebra 1 as a class.
There is also the problem of having the same students in class two years in a row. Under the best circumstances, students don’t often want the same teacher twice in a row (something about the grass always being greener on the other side of the fence). But I had some problems with some rumors this last year that affected some of the attitudes of some of the students in my classes pretty severely which complicates the whole issue.
Well we will see.
