OK, so I caved.
I am a blogger; a blogger without a sharp vision as yet.
But this is what I'm thinking as a start: I will boil down the day, or a class period , or an event, or a lesson, into seventeen syllables. That is, unless I am inspired to really dump it all here! There is so very much that is hilarious and human and heartwrenching about teaching--especially in a middle school. Face it: if you had to relive one year of your life, it probably wouldn't be your thirteenth!
