First day of school for everyone but my fifteen year old, and she is on a cleaning rampage. Yes!!! I remember doing that at her age when I was home from school.
Everyone else has hauled their (collective) six hundred pencils, thirty six glue sticks, a cart full of tissue and ziplock bags, three hundred pens, thirty markers, fifty five erasers, forty notebooks, etc, etc, off to school. Well, everyone but the 8 toddlers who are dozing around my feet.
And me? I'm only blogging because I'm avoiding a homework assignment.
I have to write a Classroom Management Plan and a Personal Philosophy of Education Statement.
Are you ready?
It can't have any I statements in it.
As in "I believe" or think, or feel, or hope. Just supposed to write it like it's gospel truth I guess. "Students learn best when they are…" Whatever.
Why call it a Personal Philosophy Statement?
Enough griping. Get back to work. Tick Tock Tick Tock.
