Half Way

Today marks the half-way point of this intensive teaching month. Even though my voice resembles that of an adolescent boy during puberty, I'm feeling fine overall. Sure, I'm tired on a regular basis which is new for me, but I'm grateful to have a job. Plus, I'm enjoying what I'm doing. In terms of sheer fun, it's hard to beat my morning science class. Just after 11am, young Jack was right on schedule in his attempt to lead us in the UCLA cheer (some students also called out "Texas, Fight" which was endearing, too). After he grew overly excited, I suggested we do the cheer silently while making exaggerated gestures. That actually went over very well and caused far less disruption for the class next door.

  1. I'd love to see that. I bet they look forward to coming to school and doing the cheer. They will take with them for a long time and remember a fun teacher that cheered with them. It's true that students remember the most unexpected things about their teachers.
