first things first: i have posted my first project on donorschoose, so please take a moment to check it out if you’d like to play a part, no matter how small, in closing the achievement gap in my classroom! i would greatly appreciate ANY amount of support, and know that my students would too :) so thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart!
secondly, after making it through the dreaded month of october — which, yes, included the first period of radical disillusionment i’ve experienced to date — i am relieved to say that i’m starting to get my fire back. of course, i still have days that make me want to curl up into a ball and sleep for the next hundred years, but that’s just…reality, and pretty much always will be. however, i am thankful to know my kids, and to watch them grow. happy early thanksgiving, everybody, and beat the hell outta nebraska :)
