Whew! What a whirlwind day we just had! We accomplished our first "menu" day together, if your head's not spinnin' then you must've absent!

So, I just have to say that my Sophomores look astute and ready for a killer year. My Juniors have a lot of fierce spunk and truly appear ready for whatever this year is going to throw their way. Lastly, my seniors seem like a down-to-earth bunch who are ready to put this year in gear already and work through it in record time to earn their ultimate graduation!

Honestly, after meeting all of my students on their first day back from a short and sweet Summer I couldn't be more optimistic about this year. And for the record,  I'm stoked. I'm uber excited and jazzed about the cool peeps I've been scheduled to hang out with  for ninety minutes every other school day this year! We are going to tackle some big ideas, a handful of big authors/playwrights, and of course spend quite a bit of time doing some big writing.

My wish for this school year:
May this year be better than the last and may I grow into an even better teacher and help as many students learn the skills vital for movement in the adult world: reading, writing, and speaking.

Here we go!
