One More Short Week!

We Are Outta Here, and We’re Not Waitin On Anyone!

You may not guess who is ready to pop a wheelie off of campus.  Better yet, according to most of our staff, it’s probably everyone that is ready to get the bus ‘outta here!  Four more days until that day:  School’s Out For Summer!  Then it’s some serious R&R before all the exams and professional development hours have to be done by July.  Grrrrrr.

Nonetheless, I do hope to post some over the next two and half months.  I emphasize HOPE however.  My summer is not exactly empty for frequent ‘adult times’…sadly.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love my work; the challenges of Special Ed kids has its non-monotary rewards.  There are five of my 27 SpecEd students that are nothing like they were when they first arrived.  They are my poster-students, if you will, of success and works-in-progress.  I am so VERY proud of them!  Several others still have much work ahead of them, but show potential.  My 8th graders gave me a nice funny compliment yesterday.  They said that if they have to they “will fail 9th grade Social Studies just to get back in my class.”  They put a big smile on my face.

This short update blog, however, is just to let friends know that my 60 – 70 hour work weeks and weekends will soon be over.  I’m sure that I will be traveling between Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio to visit and ‘play, dance, and laugh’ (big grin).  I will indeed see all of you soon!

Blogging Less Frequently

Just 2 1/2 weeks ago I was hired on as a full-time teacher for the 2011-2012 school year.  Yes, quite unexpected but welcomed news.  Of course, 10 days preparation for your students is trying to say the least!  I have been a VERY busy, busy man.  I will continue to be very busy likely up to the holiday break.

With that said, I will unfortunately, or fortunately for me, have less time for my blogging and writing here.  Some of you might be pleased to know that, assuming of course that for some bizarre reason you are still checking in here.  Hah!  But nonetheless, I want to state that instead of a blog every 3-5 days, they will pop-up about every 1-3 weeks….maybe.  *wink*

As I settle in to my new position and find a comfortable routine and balance, I will write/blog more consistently.  Meanwhile, peruse through the archives here if you like or if you’re not subscribed, check back every 2 weeks or so.
