A Little R & R

I decided to take a little R & R before things get crazy with back to school.  I wanted to spend some time with my family for these final weeks of summer, so I decided a break from writing was in order.  A trip to Kalahari and fun times with friends and family made August fly by.  So, what does school year 2014 bring for me?  Quite a bit, as always:

  • Back to teaching two courses at Wayne County Community College.  Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings I head to Northline Road to teach college level English.  I really love this second job!
  • Tuesday, I start my 17th year at O.A. Carlson High School.  While public education continues to face challenges, there is no other job for me at this time.  I love my co-workers and students.  Gibraltar is a great place to work.
  • I will be running my kids all over as usual.  Gymnastics, religious education, flag football (which I coach as well), and others events "to be determined."  I would not have it any other way.  I love watching my kids enjoy themselves doing things they love.
  • My extras: putting on an outdoor movie at Marauder Stadium, putting on a trivia night fundraiser, announcing football games, homecoming, dj gigs....it goes on and on...oh and of course my writing.  I also have big plans for expanding the Gibraltar School District Literacy initiative I oversee.  There is more we can do to spread the importance of literacy to all students of the Gibraltar School District.

So there you have it, tomorrow I will be back for my for my August 2014 Read of the Month Review.  Fasten your seat-belts, school year 2014 is about to begin!!!
