How'd We Do

Work is way more tiring than summer vacation. But teaching energizes me! Week One may not have gone according to plan, but who says life should be rushed, especially if it's just to mark items off the to do list. Beowulf will soon be coming to life again as we decide whether he is an epic hero and determine what exactly is his quest. And Janie will come of age as we analyze what we've read over the summer. Thanks to all for one of the best starts! Let's get busy!

Joy is jealous we get to read it in class when she didn't.

I really liked Their Eyes Were Watching God. I can't wait to read more novels in your class.

Sydney said...

Their Eyes Were Watching God increased my decision to never get married. :) But I really do look foward to the rest of the year in your class.

Work is tiring but I agree it does make you feel pretty good. I have to admit I'm not excited about reading Beowulf or any type of literature like that.

Andrea said...

Bible Man said...

think everyone should 'follow' me.

Maybe if we can get 300, Ms. Matthews will let us watch a movie because we are so committed to succeeding.

Follow me!

Do it!

School has been sooooo tireing this year. I'm constantly busy this year, so around 1st & 4th period - my batteries are completely dead. Then I end up having to catch up later - which I have no time for seeing as I work till 11pm and get up at 6am, which sucks because I'm in two IB classes [IB Art & IB Theory of Knowledge] and I'm also in a college class [ Intro to Ed. ] I'm thinking about just working weekends this year, but I still want some friends time. I dano. this year hasn't started all that great for me. >_<
