not sure if I ever mentioned the "incident" that we were all emailed about last week at school. a gun was brought on campus at an afterschool activity.... well I found out this week it was during basketball practice in the gym and the coach talked the guy into giving him the gun.. dumb choice for that kid bringing it it the gym like that.
school's going well this week although the last two days I hardly had a voice to teach with!... ugh dang allergies.. last weekend and then by sunday night went down to my throat so now it's a sort of stuffed up laryngitis feel to it. but I think a day or two more I's bound to run it's course..
the brother of the girl who left on a bus back to Juarez today..well he got 5 days out of school suspension for using his cell phone in class 2nd offense and then being defiant and confrontational with another teacher basically he was standing in the door and as she was trying to walk into the room he didn't move. guy has some real anger/control issues. we'll see if he makes it back to school or not. just a 9th grade grow up and get with the program sort of thing. ugh
anyone watch that new show with zooey daschel? I like it. tonight's thanksgiving show was pretty funny. I know it's all the same sit com stuff after a while, but I like this one so far. I should be grading this stack of 20 essays but only got through 2 od 'em so far.. so much for getting them all done before THrusday night's class, ha. ahh well, gotta work hard for that NYC shopping money I guess.
I thought I'd leave the banner pic for a few days... I was thinking how it might serve as a metaphor for myself, all alone and pulled on by so many strings... etc.. ha ha. half joking. ---- I'm quite happy with all my choices and direction I'm going, not always but sometimes I feel alone and I'm aware I'm in complete control of that... tis true. :)
