Parent Teacher Student Conferences- THEY ROCK!

WOW! They were AWESOME! I enjoyed meeting and talking with each parent(s) and student today. I was able to learn some great information and get candid feedback from parents.  I love that- great feedback that helps me teach better. Thanks parents.

My conferences started shortly after 12:15 and I didn't finish until after 5pm. That was an amazing ride. I had maybe 30 minutes of downtime. But with 16 conferences in a row, I was unable to stay on schedule. I only got 10 minutes per meetings and sometimes that just isn't enough.

School was a blast today. Literally. We launched our rockets we have been making for a week today. There were many funny moments. The first rocket that was launched fell apart mid-air- the tape gave out and it turned into a sheet of paper. It was hilarious. The kids who built it didn't really think it was that funny. I told them to visit the "hospital" tub (tub of supplies to fix broken/damaged rockets). My wife came with my three little boys and took pictures and shot video for me. I would have pictures on here right now, but my laptop won't read her camera card. It tries to format the card. Annoying.

With today being a 1/2 day for the kids, I am in total Friday mode and finding it hard to be motivated for the rest of the week. But it is all good. My wife is running away this weekend and leaving me with the two older boys. It is going to be fun. We will have to do some "guy" stuff like eat out and watch TV. LOL!

I am sure I could keep feeding you all these exciting details, but I think that I will head to bed instead. Having to be up early  and at school to be ready to do faculty meeting has me wiped out. Good news, NO COLLEGE CLASSES ON TUESDAY! That is good since it is my Birthday! Happy Birthday day to me!



  1. Does that mean you were born on a Friday the 13th? Must be why you don't like Halloween because of all the bad press associated with your birthday/halloweeen?

    I can't wait to see pictures. If you got a new printer, seems the newer ones have access to memory cards from cameras and you can download from there - just a suggestion - Can't wait to be in class today - E :)

  2. Hey John,

    Love ya,
