Training, Overheads.....and such stimulating thoughts!


Is it just me, or does it seem that training is really long? I know I shouldn't complain it's only once a week for 3 months every Wednesday from 4:30-7:00. It's just that "C'mon, I have been teaching for 7 years and so far I have written down 3...yes three sentences to take notes!" I'm not trying to brag about my intellectual status as an educator...but I have to say that this class has been a complete waste of time. I will persevere and try to change my obviously BAD attitude but it is very difficult to do so. In my particular district you are required to take Phase 1 Literacy training if you have only been employed with the district for 1-3 years. I feel that it is grossly inaccurate on their part not to account for the years you have taught outside of their district. Let's be honest....if I don't know how to teach my students how to read, or to refine their overall skill level when I have been teaching for seven years I shouldn't be teaching!!! Anyhow, I find that I am invigorated by the light at the end of the tunnel......as Steven and I will be heading to Washington for about a week in October. Hurray!! So for those of you on that edge of the woods....we are coming SOON!! WAAA HAAAAA HAAAAA^^^
