I cannot believe it’s been a year since this journey has started! My first year, minus the last workdays, is officially over. My Civics class kicked butt (91% proficient, what’s up), we welcomed in the new 2011 ENC corps this last week, and my classroom is almost as bare as I found it. It’s so surreal that I’m heading home in about 2 weeks (after an AP institute). right now I’m sitting on my bed, contemplating a color palate for my room, about to head out to get a drink, and I’m not working on lesson plans to submit. Dang.
Well, readers, here’s a list of brief memories from the year. If you’d like me to elaborate on any, post it in a comment and I shall oblige in another blog post.
- lesbian fight
- floods (FEMA visit #1)
- tornadoes (FEMA visit #2)
- crazy school boards
- teaching with mono
- local oyster bars
- race relations in bertie
- state testing madness
- my second family
- our kitten for 3 days, sterlingworth
- North Carolina’s inability to handle an inch of snow
I guess that’s about it, hope your summer will be as fun as mine =)
