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!!!
