If a man is doing his best,
what else is there?

Doing my best: that's all I could have done for yesterday's inservice. I couldn't possibly have been more prepared, my audience couldn't have been kinder and more enthusiastic, and my students could not have been more darling. Prepping for a workshop/demonstration on Cooperative Learning, Literacy, and Critical Thinking is not an easy task! My brain hurt putting all of those elements together in a logical, engaging way!

That being said, it is DONE! The audience was complimentary, and I really hope they were able to walk away with some practical ideas. If anything, they have some new thoughts and a local resource person they can call/e-mail. I so appreciated my students (eight!) coming in on their day off - that meant a lot to me. I will miss them over the next THREE WEEKS that I have OFF. Thank you, year-round schooling!

You're off track! You have to come see baby Abby and AJ! Call, text, or email me before you go back on track! I'm sure between two dogs, an infant, and a two and a half year old we would have an entertaining afternoon one day!
