Day two with my new knee. A bit easier today than yesterday, but I have no appetite. Have gotten up 4 times and walked out to the hallway once. Home tomorrow? Not sure, maybe Tues. Sleepy again. Time to rest.
I have taught at the middle school level for eleven years. My classes are structured as a two period block of English and US history. This year I'm also jumping in to something new and am teaching two periods of reading intervention for 7th and 8th graders.
More than anything, I love my students. I want them to be engaged, energetic, and happy. I believe student learning is directly connected to engagement and the overall feeling of a classroom.
