Four months left!

I am so friggin' tired tonight. I'm falling asleep as I write this. This is the last day of February and I couldn't be happier. Four months left! I can get through this. I can do this!

Kindergarten Democrat

My daughter told me that she's a Democrat. We had a big discussion in the car about the differences between Republicans and Democrats. "Republicans sound mean, Daddy, I'm going to be a Democrat." Ahh, I can breathe easier now that my 5-year-old is on the same team. She's so smart.

Thanks Mother Nature!

Teaching in the inner city is a constant battle for me. It's more akin to a barroom brawl than a learning experience. That's why this snow day today is so sweet. Thanks Mother Nature for dumping a foot of snow on Philadelphia. THANK YOU!!!!!

Lesson Plans, I Don't Need No Stinkin' Lesson Plans

Just finished my lesson plans and its almost midnight. I HATE writing them. I HATE having them read and critiqued on a weekly basis. All I do is paperwork. Working at an inner-city school is nothing but paperwork, paperwork, paperwork. Suck it John Stossel. You don't know jack about what teachers, Union teachers or otherwise, do for their kids. Now to bed. I feel like sh*t, yet I'm craving an Egg McMuffin. Strange.
