Well, it seems that participating in a “summer” experience is more difficult than I expected for this year-round teacher. I am knee-deep in the stresses and chaos that come with the first few weeks of a new school year. Layered on top of that is the expectation that I have rough drafts of my Kenan Fellowship lessons ready for our Summer Institute in about a week. The icing on the cake, you ask? I have to write a week’s worth of substitute plans for that week.
Some of my current insanity is self-induced–I decided to start my Chemistry unit with several mini-labs which require lots of prep–but mostly it is just a perfect storm of responsibility that I should have seen coming.
The bottom line? I won’t be posting much for the next couple of weeks. But, my fave guest blogger will have something for you later this week. So, stay tuned!
