It's hard to believe that we're already nearly at the end of January. This has been a short teaching month. We returned from Christmas break on the 6th. By the middle of the month, we were dealing with delays due to ice or fog. The first term ended on the 17th and we were out of school all of last week due to the MLK holiday, teacher inservice (from which we were excused to leave early) and three snow days. Yesterday, we had a delay because the roads were still a mess and it looks like we might have another bit of snow tonight that threatens to interrupt tomorrow. All of these interruptions have been a bit of a nuisance. I want to get back into routine and it's just not happening!
Good news: I'm definitely going to Twitter Math Camp 2014. Now, I just have to get my travel plans in order. I'm so excited to meet face-to-face with virtual friends!
Other good news: A student who has been giving me trouble lately with behavior and work ethic voluntarily came for extra help today and we had a good discussion. I'm curious to see if things change for the better in the coming days.
Good news part three: I'm making good progress on my NBCT portfolio.
