It's Here: Semester 2


Guess what? I'm due back at school tomorrow. (Well, today according to the clock). I have marked all the History exams (half the class got B or better!!!) but haven't finished all the Maths exams (almost can't be bothered. They are irrelevant). I didn't get in to set up my 'new' classroom. I am unsure as to what I am doing for History as I left the books at school. Think I might take 'Cabaret' in and play them the 'Fatherland, Fatherland' scene.

Meanwhile, Bette and I share a general desperation.

Still, it's been a good holiday. I've read things, seen things and caught up with people. I've eaten too much and exercised too rigorously (ooowwww my calves).

Here's a couple of quick recommendations. "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time"; the BBC series "Jekyll" and "Batman: The Dark Knight".

I'm off to follow in Bette's footsteps, tear my hair out and stare depressed at this term's curriculum.

What did you think of the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night? I read it last year and thought it was interesting, although I will admit to rushing through it at the end...

Best wishes for the new semester! I hope you had a long enough break! And I hope that the mathematics fairy visited all your pupils in their dreams so they have a burning desire to learn math when they come to see you!

(gotta dream big!) :)

The Curious incident is fantastic and there's a second book by the same author (name escapes me) which is equally fantastic except in a different way. Good luck with the new semester!

Hope your first day went well! And Batman was GREAT! Never read the Curious Incident one, but I'll have to check it out. :)
