I haven't done much of anything yet today. I slept kind of late. It rained again the past few days - I've been enjoying our change in weather this season. Last night mom and I watched Without a Paddle. It's got the guy who played Shaggy in Scooby Doo and the guy who played Dr. Evil's son in Austin Powers and another guy I couldn't figure out where I'd seen him as well as Burt Reynolds. It's about three thirty-somethings who go searching for D.B. Cooper's money. It was cute, novel, and funny. Nothing high class, mind you. We enjoyed it quite a bit.
The Lance Armstrong Foundation yellow bands I ordered came in today - plan to use them for geocaching, mostly - see my links - LAF - for more info.
I think it is so cool that Iraq has made it to the semifinals for soccer!
Well I don't feel like posting or talking about anything serious, I had enough of that the past few days in various yahoo groups, etc.
It is really hard to judge the coming year from the first few days of school. But so far things are fine. My geometry class is huge - 35 - and I have only 32 seats. They're all that big - all the geometry sections. One of them has 38! Crazy. But not much we can do about it. AP Stats has lots of great kids, lots of diversity in terms of math background. IMP I'm going to have to work at trying to get those kids up - many of them need help academically, organizationally, and/or motivationally. Mastery, technically my "lowest" level class, is looking to be pretty nice, as long as the computers work. A few teachers that walked last year and a few new ones already started walking 7th period plan which is nice except I could use the time to work. I've been so busy with lots of work. And fourth period plan I don't get to use my room because they scheduled another class in it. So I've been coming to work an hour early to try to get things done then as I have the motivation of a gnat by the time school ends. I'm not a mid-late afternoon person.
