I believe I have officially contracted my first cold of the 2005-2006 school year. It’s pretty much a fact of life, when you spend 6 hours a day with 30 teenagers. They put their germs everywhere. Bleh.
I’m fighting it off pretty hard with DayQuil, NyQuil, and Vitamin C.
I have a big week coming up. In one class, I owe several papers. In my Modern Algebra class, I have some homeork due, and my portfolio (typed notes and selected homework problems — sounds easy, but remember it’s math — not easy to type). I also have a test on Wednesday in that class.
At my job-school, I have a pretty packed week, with the grand finale on Friday — My first of four yearly observations.
This is my opportunity to showcase my exceptional teaching skills to a panel of experts (principal, new teacher coordinator, and mentor/department chair/county teacher of the year)…
I guess I’ll begin the getting nervous process soon. That, combined with the cold should make for a pretty good diet.
