Yesterday I just felt a little "off". Nothing specific, and not all that bad. I'm grateful to feel a bit more on track today.

Okay, my kids both have Pneumonia, and I have ANOTHER upper respiratory infection. My son has been in preschool for six months and they told us this would happen. Anyway, I am grateful that my kids started their antibiotics, for our family health insurance, and the belief that we can all be more than well by the time of the Tribal Gathering.

Had a Monday morning staff meeting at the southern California public high school at which I work. I feel like it's the same meeting I've been going to for years: Doom and gloom, the nation is falling apart, no moral fiber, angry teachers, angry union members, test scores, intervention models!

I'm grateful to get back to my classroom, and teach my students. While some of their GPA's are low, I assure you that this bunch will be just fine when they're my age.
