This was quite a week, with arrival of Hurricane Earl, the heat wave we have been in is officially over. We survived. In my area in Maine we set, equaled or came close to a record temperature every day this week, along with the high humidity made the classrooms unbearable. I really doubt a lot of learning took place during this week because of the weather.
We were lucky that Hurricane Earl only brushed the coast and didn’t make that left hand turn after Cape Cod. We only got a bit of rain and it stopped soon enough this morning that I didn’t get very wet during my Bennie walk.
We had our school open house on Tuesday and I thought that it went very well. But the great news is that all the 7th & 8th graders have been issued their MLTI MacBook laptops. Now the fun begins and I am looking forward to teaching next week.
As a result of being completely brain dead and wiped out every night this week, I didn’t post very much to my blogs or participate in Twitter conversations. I kind of expected a reduction over the course of September, but I didn’t expect almost a complete “all stop”. Hopefully, with more seasonable temps, I will have some energy left for blog entries and being on Twitter.
Below is a review of my top 5 posts for the week:
- PERSONAL APPEARANCE MAKES A DIFFERENCE
- MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY – 2010
- THE DIGITAL LIFESTYLE
- SURVIVING THE HEAT
- WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES – 2010
Thank you everyone who has taken the time to read my blog.
