What I've Been Up To

I haven’t been as active as I’d like to be on the blog lately. Life has been busy!

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.
