Craziness is Contagious ...

You can use my classroom for scientific experimentation and prove that this theory is, indeed, correct.

I have some great pictures and memories from our summer vacation to share and will get back in here and write about them as soon as I can. Right now I have to say that Oregon and Washington are spectacularly beautiful, BHD and hobbitt are kewler than cool, and I wanted my vacation to continue much longer than it did.

The craziness at work is not really all about the kids. I can usually handle that as I get to know the new ones. The administrators, however, are KILLING us with paperwork demands that are interefering with our ability to actually work WITH the kids. On top of that we have Back To School night this week and I still have not caught up with the computer grading since I have been chasing kids around the campus and up the hill for the last 2 weeks. It is a conspiracy to drive me crazy. Really. It is.

It's working.

Wish me lots of luck and patience because I need way more than I currently have!


  • I think you have precisely the patience you need. Now, for an outlet....hmmmm....water cannons aimed at the goobers at 20 feet! Cold, cold water....

  • You are obviously a woman of much patience and deep caring, so that's no problem. I wish you the presence of mind to get joy out of all the little things. That is what I'd like more of myself!
