And now for the REAL hurricane...

Tomorrow I go back to school. It's freshmen orientation, and I will be teaching three sections of freshmen this year. I will also have three sections of sophomores. I will not have the freshmen Honors section.

I have a new teacher coach. Last year he was the department supervisor, but he somehow got knocked down a peg. He is 29 or 30, young enough to be my son. It is due to his change in status that my schedule got re-arranged, that I got sophomores, that I lost Honors.

Remember last year when so many of you fine readers sent copies of The Great Gatsby for use in my classroom? I want to thank you again for that. I'm hoping I get Honors again some day. I'm not considering teaching Gatsby to the regular College Prep kids. But I have the books! And last year's Honors class really liked the story.

This year I'm not asking y'all for any hand-outs ... except ... I'm sure my Patience Extender is getting worn out. It was almost completely broken in June. It won't possibly last another ten months. So, if you could please send me a Patience Extender, I would appreciate it.

Peace,
Anne

Blessing to your new year. Sorry you lost your honors class. Hopefully your freshmen class won't be too hyped up on hormones.

Get a good night's sleep. Then get out there and teach one for the Gipper!

Oh, and you might want to mention to your freshman that they might very well be humanity's last gasp at survival, if they might want to be bothered to finally stop the insanity in the halls of government and actually work on legislation to actually address global warming. Just saying.........best to warn them now while they have a chance to plot the course of their lives, beings they might be the very last generation.
