When I started filling out my December Currently, I was watching an episode of Ellen, but then my computer overheated and shut down. I should have posted that I need a new laptop fan.
I grew up in Kansas, so I love winter in Texas. I don't miss the snow one bit.
I am not looking forward to teaching writing this week. Tuesday, my students are going to do a "mock" writing benchmark and write a personal narrative, then Wednesday it is back to expository writing. Then in January, they will take ANOTHER writing benchmark over two days. I will have 44 narratives and 44 expository compositions to grade. Yeah me!
I started a project this morning. I spray painted a board white. I need to cut out some letters. Respray the board red, then staple tinsel garland on it. Once I finish, I'll take pictures and post it as December Made It.
I, also, need to finish decorating my house. I put up the tree and started adding lights. Only to discover a hodge podge of blinking and not lighting up at all. Tomorrow, I will fix it, but I am procrastinating today.
My RAK...at my school, we regularly nominate staff members for C.E.O awards (Chief Energy Officers). The winners receive a certificate and a duty covered by the administrators. I nominated my partner and he won Wednesday.
Our district has SAE and TAE awards (Student and Teachers Achieving Excellence). Parents and teachers can nominate other teachers. A copy is then emailed to the teacher and their administrators, plus their name goes into a drawing for gift card for a massage (at my school). This past Friday I received one. Woo Hoo!
Now, it is my turn to nominate another teacher.
