It makes for an entertaining day seeing 8th graders and Kindergarteners and almost everything in between in the course of seven hours. However, it also makes for a confusing, frustrating, and exhausting day. I see that I have not posted since October. I also have not looked at Twitter since October. Over the summer break I became so energized by communicating with other teachers all over the world (especially ELL teachers) because I have so little time for that in “real life”. Being the only ELL teacher at two schools gets lonely. I read blogs, followed tweets, clicked links that led to even more links until I became lost in this unseen world of teachers communicating about how to better serve kids. It was great. Then school started back. Although I promised myself I would make the time to keep up the conversation – I broke that promise.
I’m not big on making resolutions, but since all I’m accomplishing in this post is complaining – I might as well add something positive. I’m going to pick myself back up, put myself back together, and start the new year off ready to make things happen.
