Testing time for my ELL students means I have REALLY easy classes to prepare for. And really easy class sessions. Today my biggest job was keeping one of my students awake. He would sign in with his name on the computer and then fall asleep before he managed to put in his password.
I am worried about... something. I guess still that I am not aware of ALL the things that need to happen. Ummm... right. I need to get a handle on the co-teaching science piece. The students have had a rough go of it.
This is the first year they have done a science class for level 1 students.
The ELL teacher that they had at the beginning of the year left before winter break.
Then there was a long-term sub for a month or so.
The science teacher (teaching biology) has not taught biology in the past and it is not her passion.
Now I am here.
Tomorrow we will be making revolutionary plans that will make this whole unwieldy things work.
Things I need to tie up still:
dropping off books and following up with some record-keeping at my last job
turning in forms for my NAMI talk
other things that I am not remembering
but I am not as panicked about that
because I have reserved most of my concern for my students and my family
This whole thing has really cut in to my beading time. However, I will be able to catch up during spring break. And this weekend when I am on a road trip with Grand Symphonic Winds. We will be playing a concert in Ames... the Athens of Iowa.
