Alive and Kicking for a New Year!

Yes this summer I took a hiatus-much needed too!
June I spent with my mom who has recovered nicely and is considering driving up to visit me this weekend-110 miles one way. She has been driving for two months but not further than 35 miles from home. Really cherished time with mom.
July and August busy with professional work, interviewing new superintendent and principal-actually only sat in on the interview with school board. Both my choices were selected and said yes!
Finally moving into standards-based teaching-for the district. We have several “new” items this year, pre-assessments and district wide lesson templates. While much moaning and groaning, I am able to cut and paste my past years standards-based lesson plans into the template and I even shared my pre-assessments with the new teachers!
Proud of myself? Sure but I also know how hard I have worked the past 10-15 years; and I haven’t been as productive as I could have. One of my summer writing projects is not quite done yet-still have 25% of the writing to complete, revise, etc.
Whew!
Promise to write more sooner!
