I took a loooong break from blogging. đź™‚ This past month I have been doing a lot of transitioning (between teams) at IHOP and I have been trying to keep my classes at The Daniel Academy together. Planning lessons and grading papers tends to take the creative blogging out of me. ;-/Â

However, after 1 more week of classes and then 30 finals to grade the next week, I will be done! I am glad. It has been a long and hard year, as most people at TDA can testify to. Not without it’s rewards, that is certain. And I will be very sad to say goodbye to my students. This thing I can definitely say… mathematics aside… I definitely have two of the best classes of students at the school. I enjoy my students so much. đź™‚ I am not sure how many, but I know that some students will be moving onto other schools or other cities next year. I am really going to miss them.

And, I will be teaching at The Daniel Academy next year! Two classes, hopefully Pre-Calculus and Algebra 2. But if there is not a high enough enrollment for Pre-Calc, then it will be Algebra 2 and Algebra 1. So, all you students out there… sign up for Pre-Calculus! It’s going to be a blast. đź™‚ I am very excited about starting things fresh next year. I have a lot of ideas brewing in my mind, and I am looking forward to setting some standards from the beginning with the students. And having class 3 times a week will be wonderful. More time for creative stuff and discovery type of lessons. Good stuff.Â

Well, I will leave other updates to future posts, but they include the addition of a very furry individual to my life! His name is Miles. More info to come later. đź™‚
