I Live For Days Like This

I think my students liked the field trip.


They don't know it yet, but I have a sneaking suspicion they might have even learned something too.

And at the end of the day one kid said to me, "We had fun today. Thanks." It doesn't get much better than that in the world of teaching.

That's quite a nice looking neighborhood you've got there.

I was on a field trip today too. I think I love getting out of school more than the kids.

I hope you told that hooligan to pull his damn pants up.

I hope you collected enough data from the trip so you can share it with everybody. Aren't you supposed to be at a wedding? I didn't know they had power down there. BTW, AP max Monday, are you going to take a personal day?

Lulu: My neighborhood rocks! One of the many things that's so cool about it is that there are houses like this one mixed in with little bitty houses and apartment buildings and condos. Oh, and homeless people.

Brian: My primary concern was making sure he didn't get run over. Plus those pants are pulled up pretty well compared to some.

Ronin: I've shifted all my data-collecting attention to the search for another school district in which to get my teach on.

megan--Chicago has some lovely schools. And we will be needing someone in the Social Studies department next year......

Chicago. . .that's above the Mason-Dixon line, right?

One of the nice things about teaching is that you can pretty much do it anywhere, so I'm keeping my options open.

And by "open" you mean anywhere south of the Mason-Dixon line, right?
