So early, it actually hurts
I've been somewhat inactive in Blog World this last week because I have officially been "back to school" (the kids come back on Monday). I've been pretty busy getting my room ready in the midst of all the pointless trainings and in-services they have us attending.
The Mother of All Pointless Trainings is tomorrow. We have to LEAVE SCHOOL at 5:30 (yes, in the morning), so I have to be up at 4:15. We're driving all the way to the Seminole Hard Rock Cafe and Casino for our company Summit. Now, this had the POTENTIAL to be cool--it's at a CASINO, for Pete's sake!!!! However, WE won't be in the casino. No, we'll be sitting in a rah-rah pep rally the whole day. The ONLY redeeming quality is that the guest speaker this year is Ron Clark, another god in the teaching world (last year, it was Harry Wong, a name that will mean nothing to you if you're not in the education field, but WE were pretty excited). Ron Clark was portrayed by Matthew Perry in a TNT movie last year, if some of you caught that. (It was actually pretty good.)
So that'll be my day. We aren't expected back to the school till 7:30 or so tomorrow night. It'll be a LONG day--and maybe an hour of that will be valuable to us.
