Ladies and Gentlemen, drum roll please.....
Because MY favorite thing this Friday is YOU!
That's right - YOU!
Why, you ask?
Because YOU are amazing!
Seriously though, this has been a doozy of a week. But, at the end of the day, I know that I have YOU, the math-twitter-blog-o-sphere to keep me sane.
Highlights from this week...
The Global Math Department meeting this week was *A*M*A*Z*I*N*G!! Thanks Megan, Lisa, and all of the presenters this week! (ACK! I'm supposed to present next week!?!?!?!?)
My foldable in Algebra 2 worked! (Thanks Julie for rocking your foldable talk and thanks to @approx_normal and Monica for proofreading it for me)
Notebooks are going smoothly in both Algebra 2 and AP Stat. Even had a student teacher come observe today and the boys at her group did such a great job of explaining what they liked about the notebook.
Back to School night was tonight and I must give a Shout-Out to @LaurenDeReche for her Angry Birds Grading screen that I flat out stole :) (Sorry Lauren! But you were a hit!)
In general, this was a crappy week. We had our personal family losses of last week plus additional losses this week in our school family. But, sometimes loss can help you cherish what you have. And this week, I choose to cherish YOU.
Each of you have helped to make me a better teacher, a better friend, and a better person.
Thank you for sharing your lives, your strategies, your struggles, and your triumphs.
