Whoop-Whoop! “Room 109”

I have finished about half of Room 109 by Richard Kent. I am officially jumping on the portfolio wagon! However, I still feel concern for the amount of work there is that goes with the territory. I do not mean to sound lazy, but I know I will struggle to find the balance between the classroom life and my personal life. I fear that I will not be able to find a school with a writing center or with computers. I worry that without these crucial resources, I will not be able to provide the right amount of feedback that might be necessary. I do not want to be unable to meet and serve the needs of my students by being unable to figure out what their needs actually are. Does that make sense?

Yes, I love this book. Yes, I will steal more than one idea out of this book. Yes, I recommend everyone who is seriously considering a portfolio and workshop based classroom to read this book. Two people whose opinions I value, Nikki and Lindsey, loved this book as well. I will blog more on this topic when I actually finish reading the lovely book.

patience-is-a-virtue Ha! I thought this was cute.

In other news, I know I have had some very bad blogging habits lately. I just struggle with what I want to blog about. Also, I feel like I do nothing but rant in my blogs. So, I am working on these things, but I fear that this will be a long process. I already want to fly off on a tangent about how disgusting those nasty box-elder bugs are and how they are the bane of my existence right now….

So, hopefully the next blog will be easier than this one. My goals for next time: longer, no off-topic rants, and at least 3 relevant pictures containing animals. Ciao!
