I last posted two months ago. This was a forced break so I could vanquish negativity out of myself. I am now ready to write again and try to be a better teacher.
This semester has seen me more organized, more excited, and more involved with my classes. It has taken until now to finally feel at ease at the high school. I cannot say that I am completely happy with this switch in schools because I still miss my junior high, but in the two months since my last post, I have done much to be more positive about my career despite some of the things I know I cannot do.
I want to write more about things that I know to be good and better for students and point out flaws in the way things are currently done. I want to cite sites from the Internet which support both sides. And I want to try to be happier in my resigned position of having to use some teaching methods which I may not agree with but which, by doing so, will ultimately help me feel less stressed.
Thank you for all of you who have been reading. It was a shock to take note of the hits despite not being here. And now that I have figured out how to write an entry on my PDA, sync with my computer, and have it sent here on its own, it will be even easier to do so.
