yah... it's nearly the end of the year. Yesterday the entire contents of a teacher's room were moved outside to the lawn. Sadly, it wasn't mine, but then again they probably didn't want to move 8 large stacks of papers, 4 piles of notebooks and more folders than any one person should legally have. And today, we have the ol' stink bomb in the hallway. My class elected to leave via the window rather than suffer the hallway air. Thank heavens I have a window! Finally, I learned my lesson from the previous years and did not assign any final papers or large tests. The projects are coming in - some are really good (I'll have to take photos!) and others... well, lets just say that my passing rate is not going to improve. A week and two days left!
