It’s funny how much translates from one district to another. So far, NYCDOE’s “rigor” is just about the same as DPS’s “rigor”. Today I spent the bulk of my day working on year long “Student Learning Objectives” and creating a “performance based task” for the end of the first unit (no more expeditions). It’s been a long day. I am lucky this year though – I am working closely with a super thoughtful teacher who is also teaching bio. The catch is, my schedule is still not set yet and the first day of school with students is this Monday. At first I was told I would be teaching Physics (2 sections), Bio, and a credit recovery course. Now I may be teaching one Physics, Honors Bio, Bio and the credit recovery. My eyes went buggy a first, but I’m determined not to stress over having 4 different preps (courses to teach) till everything is set with the master schedule.
Today on the clothing front I went a bit nicer than the usual t-shirt and jeans of summer. I’ve also been sporting these amazingly sassy sunglasses all summer. My friends Sara and Pedro gave them to me before I left Brooklyn and they are seriously the best ever. They’re Valentino and probably the nicest thing I own.
