Day 2 of 180 2016-17

Class 6: Same class as class 3, but different students.  More students.  I liked it.  I think there’s potential there.  We’re watching a TED talk today on humor and insults in culture.  We’ll see how it goes.  Fingers crossed.

Class 2 actually had 1 student show up, so that’s something.  But still, only 1.  And class 3 had three, but one transferred out and another one wants to do so also.  The third wants to remain there.  He’s one of my former students from a different ELA class, and I think that I could do a lot of good work 1:1 with him.

I’ve seen lots of students and all of them are glad to know where the new room is.  It’s sweet.  Goal for the year: remain positive.


Day 1 of 180 2016-17

Welcome back all you playing along with the home edition.  New year, new home base, lots of rooms, and we’ll figure it out from there.  I’m remaining positive, but I’m clearly anxious.  Apparently, even when I’m amused, people want to fix it for me.  (Whatever it may be.)  There aren’t enough ways to say, “Way above your pay grade, Buddy!” because inevitably, that’s a true statement.

Class 1: 16 of 26 showed up.  Starting class tomorrow and trying again.

Class 2: 0 of 2 showed up.  But 2 showed up who weren’t supposed to be in the class, but were scheduled into this room.

Class 3: 3 of 3 showed up.  But 1 left to transfer out, so, huh.

Class 4: All but 3 showed up, so that was mostly victorious!  A lot of the students have big personalities, but fortunately I knew them last year.

Class 5: None of my students have shown up.  They were all told they were to go to C211.  Meanwhile, my schedule says F230.  The class ends shortly.
