overloaded with info!

Yesterday was fun, but whew, there was a bunch of info to decompress. It was good that I was at this school for subbing for 7 years cause we were divided up into teams and we had to find different rooms for a scavenger hunt. Of course I got on a team with the new PE teacher who is young and very fit! We ran from one side of the school to the other and back and forth! I knew where all the rooms were and which ones we could cut through to get to the next place faster. Very fun and of course we won GOLD! (I love the Olympics!) We got to choose 3 different prizes from all the ones on the table. Very cool! And then today I had lab safety, lab safety, lab safety for science, although it was very informative and I heard from other new teachers that their class was soooooo boring they were doodling and couldn't understand why they were being lectured to when we are told not to lecture to students but to have them up and doing group work! One day and one week more of training. There is more to teaching than just getting up in front of kids and telling them stuff!
My boys are missing their mommy and want me to quit playing blog, so....don't forget to comment and let me know you were here. C YA!

Sounds busy! Congrats on the win...what was the prize? I wish I could work. I have to wait till the kids get older. My mom doesn't want to "babysit". Oh well, at least kids will be in school 3 days a week starting Sept. 8th.
