What I've Been Up To
Some of my time has been spent filling in for other teachers. Subbing is typically a last-minute request, so other plans get pushed aside. I also took over a class from someone who went on a two-week vacation. So, in addition to showing up and following a lesson plan, I became responsible for making the lesson plans, creating and grading the tests, and reading/correcting all assignments. Teaching is one of those jobs that doesn't end with the workday. Few students appreciate the fact that I have more homework than they do.
Related to teaching, I did have time for a blog post over at my other (and much neglected) blog, Touring the Valley. Thirty years ago, the phrase "school shooting" would probably have sounded like a nonsense phrase. Now, tragically, it is a thing. I wrote a little bit about my thoughts regarding guns on campus.
