This is my first attempt at Blogging. I thought it would be a good venue for me to write about my thoughts and get myself writing again. I also thought it would be great to write about my first year teaching and start a mini-community of other first-year teachers.
There are a few problems with that though. First, i seem to have no time at all to do anything except plan for class, grade papers, spend time with my partner, and sleep. So we will see if I am able to keep this blog Active. I am also afraid I am spending too much time in front of this darn computer already.
Well today I met with one of my students who got in my face the day before spring break and cussed me out. It was a strange meeting in which I feel almost no resolution. I am glad that my administration supports my safety, but I don't feel as if the student has learned that his behavior is not ok.
