OK, where’d that go?

Wednesday, I mean. Where’d it go? I got up at 12:50 a.m. yesterday, so it was definitely the longest day of the week for me (by the time I went to bed at 10:55 last night, I’d been up for what…22 hours?).

Yesterday was also long because of spending it not teaching, but instead sitting in the (thankfully air-conditioned) high school library for 7.5 hours, writing SLOs. What are SLOs? These. Pretest, posttest, measurable growth indicators, assessment data…

Très excité, non? I thought you’d like it. Don’t get me started.

So last night I had my parent meeting for choir tour, with 73 attending, which I thought was great! My tour representative, who was also at the meeting, told me that he goes to bigger schools and has much smaller turnouts at these things. I felt proud. As more people came through the door, he kept saying, “Wow, full house tonight!” As usual, the meeting ended within one hour, but I stayed and yapped until almost 9:00. At least I only surfaced once during the night, but was able to go back to sleep.

Busy weekend coming up — what’s on everyone’s plate? I’m grateful for a high of only 75 today; the poor kids and teachers were absolutely wilting yesterday in the 90+ degree high school. Ugh.

Right. Time to get moving. Are you happy today?

Yikes – looks like someone is trying to justify their position in the state governors office by making you justify yours. ‘Taint fair, I tell ya.

Congrats on the turnout for the tour. The great thing about Wednesday being over is we’re on the homestretch for the weekend! Woo Hoo!!!

Oh BLAH I don’t like the looks of that SLO or anything like it. I don’t even like Slo Gin. HA. RE: the other post, I thought maybe you weren’t sending out notices anymore so I’m good. I have today off, did the shopping yesterday so today it’s about getting a workout in (did an hour of aerobics since it’s raining out), doing some laundry cleaning, and tonight watching more Sons of Anarchy. Nice rainy day events Have a good weekend!! <3 ReplyRat Fink Reply:September 15th, 2013 at 5:28 amYou know…I might have to succumb to SoA. I’ve heard so… Read more »
