"So, are you gonna be laid off?"

I'm really tired of hearing this question. I don't know and I'm not going to worry about it. I am confident in my teaching ability and there's nothing I can do to change the 5 million dollars of debt, so I will be patient and see.

Well, that was my one moment of venting in this blog. The rest will be happy things! I had a wonderful spring break hanging out with my best friend! We watched a ton of basketball and never ran out of things to talk about, but none of that surprises me. It's the reason why she's my best friend.

The week back was not as crazy as I thought it might be. I had some interactive lessons planned and it kept the kids entertained (for the most part!). One of the lessons we did was called the "Human Bar Graph." I had the students complete a survey about my class, then so it was anonymous they folded their surveys into paper airplanes and flew them around the room for 2 minutes. When time was up they picked up the closest airplane to them and sat back in their desk. We then went outside to the track to make our bar graphs. They stood in front of the sign that correlated to the answer that was on their new sheet. From left to right their options were Never, Rarely, Often, and Always (use that when you're looking at the pictures below).I wasn't sure how the whole thing was going to go, but it worked very well and I'm excited to show them their pictures tomorrow. They will also be on my school website for parents to see. 

I hope everyone has a fantastic week. This week includes one of my favorite days of the year: Opening Day of the Texas Rangers.
