Today was picture day. Some of the kids got all slicked up for it. One weird kid from the class that comes to me just for math and science comes in with his hair all slicked up, the collar of his flame-pattern shirt turned up and this paper fan (folded accordian style) scotch-taped to his chest. He told me he was Elvis. Strange kid. I don't know if they let him keep that look for the picture or not. While we were waiting in line for pictures they passed out plastic combs to all the kids. Most of the boys played with them or tore them up. The girls used them to constantly comb their hair for the rest of the day.

My partner-teacher had a sub today. Every time I saw her she had a deer-in-the-headlights look and just seemed like things were falling apart or something. Poor lady. These kids are a handful I guess. We had another sub who is an evacuee from New Orleans. She was a school principal there. You could hardly ask for a better sub! She seemed calm and cool all day.

I just found out tonight that I'm being observed tomorrow by a representative of the place where I did my teacher certification program. Thanks for the advance notice! Luckily I think I have a pretty decent lesson planned.

Today was a looong day. After school at 3:30 I had to go to another computer thing to get checked off on my usage of Excel. That took a while. I finished a little after 4:30 and had to go straight to my monthly ongoing teacher training class. It was close to 9pm when I got home from that. That stinks to not be able to come home for that long.

Well, that's about all I've got. Later...

Wow! 9PM? Let me guess, you're probably underpaid as well.

Teachers have it rough! :-(

Keep up the good work, dig...
