On a more positive note...

Yesterday was the last day of my pre-student teaching placement, and I actually got to teach stuff. I received great feedback from Mrs. R and she gave me a glowing review to submit to my advisor, and the kids seemed to be pretty into the lesson. (Although one boy clearly missed the point of the lesson; after discussing Buddha and his values and beliefs, one boy wrote an essay speculating that, if Buddha were alive today, he'd "be in a gang or something.") Plus, I got to break up one almost-fight (no small feat, considering that both boys were bigger than I was).

Gotta love middle school.

Where my girls at? Dang, I go out of my way to post something GOOD on here and I get nothing. I know Anna's gone, but Renee, you're still there till tomorrow, and I think Kish is still around. And what about my honorary girls?

Jen said...

PS, I bought "Walking for Dummies" today. Go ahead and have a field day with that one. ;)

SingleAgain said...

LOL! Why would you buy that book?

Fred said...

Honorary girl Fredericka here. Today was the last day of school, so we had a little celebration after work. Tomorrow, too!

Yeah, you gotta love middle school. If you ask most high school teachers, they wouldn’t want to be there. That's a compliment. It takes far more patience and understanding to teach 6th – 8th.

Sounds like you're well on your way.

Sorry Jen, here I am. been outside all day planting flowers and also went grocery shopping. Good news on your postive note :).

Does anyone know if they sell a "gardening for dummies." :)

Jen said...

Single--it's for fitness walking, how to get the most out of your workout, etc etc.

keesh said...

Jen- speaking of where people are at, where are you at? No comments on my last two posts?? WUZ UP!

Jen said...

I'M TOO TRAUMATIZED TO TALK (lol, can't you tell?)

Renee said...

Man, am I out of the loop! I couldn't post any comments last night; don't know why... and my allergies have been SO BAD the last week that when I'm not playing with Brent I'm lying on the couch. Fun shit.

So yeah, sorry I've been MIA for so long!

I can't believe it was your last day already! Are you gonna have her class in the fall for student teaching?

I'm so proud of you! I have a cheesy grin on my face for you. LOOK AT ALL YOU'VE ACCOMPLISHED! You go! Love ya!

Renee said...

And I am laughing my ass off, first at Fred's "honorary girl Fredericka" and then Rob's "cuz sometimes I sway" comments.

LOLOLOL.

Rob said...

glad to have you back renee. wondered where you were.

Renee said...

Thanks Rob. I was actually busy being a slutty cancer :-)

Renee said...

Kish, I think they really DO have a Gardening for Dummies book... I'm pretty sure I saw one at Barnes and Noble a couple weeks ago... they had a whole display of gardening books.
