NOTE: This post was supposed to be published a couple of weeks ago, but evidently I forgot to schedule it, so it’s been sitting around, waiting for it’s moment to shine. I know it’s a little outdated, and probably irrelevant now, but let’s give it its moment, ‘kay?
It’s that time of year again. Back to school!

I’m happy you’re back! I’ve missed you.
Thank you! I’m trying to back into the swing of things.
Everything you said here is true. I would also add when there are “break out” groups that everyone wants you to be in their group when they have to illustrate charts. It’s the only time the art teacher is popular.
I love this. #9 is my favorite.
So much technology! So much Google Classroom. And apps for Google Classroom to make grading “easier”. And so much data. That’s what our PD’s are about in HS.
