It seemed like everyone had the MLK holiday except the teachers in my school district. The surrounding districts gave both teachers and students a holiday, but my district had "professional development" for teachers. Not fair!
On a positive note, the workshop was good, not something you typically hear a teacher say. The language arts teachers in my grade level (about 35 of us) had the good fortune of working with Jeff Anderson for the second time. We did bits and pieces of his book Ten Things Every Writer Needs to Know. I really like his approach to teaching!
And speaking of teaching, Our lesson plans are usually due on Monday at 8AM, but since we didn't have students today, I thought we'd get an extra day. Not so. Oh well. I'm a day late and a dollar short as usual. I prefer to have my ducks in a row where my job is concerned.
On a completely different note, this weekend, my husband and I went to Galveston just to walk around and do something slightly better than sitting on the couch. I took some random pictures.
Galveston's First Presbyterian Church built in 1876.
The US Customs House built in 1861
Blue sky and palm trees. It was a gorgeous day!
Have a great week!
