Classroom update

Ain’t panorama mode cool? I didn’t do a ton today, mostly just rearranged desks and got my bulletin boards covered. There’s a banner on that stretch of wall to the extreme left that happened after the picture and you probably can’t see the number line on the far right. Monday I’ll get some stuff on the wall in the back by my desk and quite possibly swap some desks out for a round table, which will fix a lot of the tightness issues, which are mostly on the far side of the room.

Sooner or later I need to think about curriculum, too, but … yeah. Sooner or later. I met several of the teachers on my team today and a few that weren’t, and it was really interesting to me to hear myself swing back and forth from sounding like a burnout to … well, not. But there’s definitely some burnout talk happening. Hoping to get that killed off before school starts. We’ll see. Five more days!

Monthly Reads: July 2019

Book of the Month: Wanderers, by Chuck Wendig, but that entire bottom four are all fantastic books, and I’m pretty sure Jade War would have been BotM had I managed to finish it in July. Jade City isn’t eligible on account of being a reread, but I’ve already said how much I liked that one.

Meanwhile, have this:
