Snow Dazed and Confused...

...we returned to school today, parents over-joyed while students and teachers struggled to figure out how to get back on track and play catch-up. Lots of frantic re-scheduling of everything from Valentine's parties to play dates and sporting events.

The challenge for the teacher is how fast you can get them to remember everything they've learned so far so you can guide them ever onward.

I expect that non-teaching adults might envy our paid "calamity days" off per contract. I will tell you that this teacher stressed over each missing minute of school and spent a great deal of the time snowed in working on things that would directly benefit my students.

The great mounds of snow began to melt rapidly today. Spring is just around the corner And we are back at school -- hooray!
