Now Teaching: Week -6

I will be coming back after a year away from teaching. There were nine weeks until the start of school (which is right after labour day) but any teacher who doesn’t come in at least once in the week prior to that (to figure out classroom setup, make photocopies, et cetera, all at no pay) is crazy. So if that’s “Week 0”, we’re at “Week -6”.
Previous INDEX Next

I seem to have decided it’s more important to take a whack at the To Do list versus actually prepping courses... “Do another Parody Math Video” is officially off the list. The CanCon2016 recap is pending. Somewhat related, I’m wondering how much “regular” stuff I should keep mentioning, like Tuesday Yoga and Thursday Comic Chat. (I have mentioned the former, not the latter, despite the latter soaking more time.)

Another insight I had today... by effectively starting all my weeks with SUNDAY (not Monday), I’m pushed to get a few things done on Saturday so that I can mention them here. Also, I’ve never had that “summer feel” of “what day is it”... though that never happened much anyway, and could be connected to my inability to relax? Ah well, time still passes.
