I just got this picture from my friend eArThworm, taken at Trail Days 2005, just before I started my two-week hike on the AT. It's kind of a cheesy picture, but I thought y'all might enjoy a non-teacher pic for a change!
Meanwhile, I'm back to grading literary analysis essays. It's kind of neat to read them; most of these kids have never written a literary analysis before. It's exciting, for me at least, to help them learn how to do this.
Oh yeah, my first day in the new classroom was wonderful!
