Climate change: it exists. My school has its second early release day in a row because we’re in a dangerous heat wave and the air conditioning is busted in some of the schools in the district. It’s the end of August. In Western Massachusetts. This did not used to be the case. Apparently in one of the districts near mine, they had to cancel yesterday and today. I joke, in the Spring, about wanting to have some Sun-Days instead of Snow-Days, but this is something else entirely.
This year, my A week is 6 classes of English Enrichment (10th grade) and B week is 4 classes of English Enrichment (9th grade) and 1 long block of SEI English 10. (Aka “Big Kid” English or “Air Quotes” English.)
I’m starting an additional license program to add a Moderate Disabilities license for grades 5-12. One class a semester, and then a practicum. I’m nervous, but excited. We’ll see how it goes.
