Where Did the Fall Go?

The months of September and October seemed to last minutes (at least in my mind). For me, it truly is the busiest time of year.  I am back to work at my full time job at Carlson High School, my Student Council Advisor responsibilities (including homecoming) are running non-stop, I am teaching six credit hours at Wayne County Community College and add in my parent/spouse responsibilities and I was absolutely swamped this fall. When I am not at work or preparing for work at home I driving my kids all over town to their activities.  Finally, as we reach late November my calendar is starting to open up a little.  My college courses only have two meeting remaining and my role as Cleveland Browns Flag Football coach is now over.

I am embarrassed to report that I have not read a book since my August 2013 Read of the Month which was an amazing read.  I hope to change that with December.  I also look forward to writing my annual Holiday Tech Gift List like I do each time around this time of year. 

I am also happy to report that I am once again working with Carlson High School Student Council and our literacy team to encourage reading throughout the Gibraltar School District.  Just yesterday I was able to take nine Carlson students to Weiss Elementary School to read to a number of students.  We are also working on starting a school-wide read in March for "March is Reading Month."  Working with the council is the best part of my job.  I am able to help develop the true student leaders of the school.  Homecoming is crazy busy and stresses me out, but I never want to give up my advisor position.  What other job lets me dress as Gru with my favorite Minons at Carlson High School?

With everything going on in my life something had to be cut out, and that was my writing for The Geekly Reader.  Not being able to write (and read) was really a bummer.  This is something I really enjoy working on throughout the year.  I am happy to be back, and look forward to posting more often.  Hopefully you can join me as we wrap up 2013 and look forward to an amazing 2014.
