Weird, this time change....

The time change came too soon. Having the time change earlier is OK from the standpoint of energy costs, but for poor lil ol' me, it's craziness.

I usually check my clocks before I go to bed, leaving my VCR and my computer to set themselves properly. The computer (fortunately) changed time properly; the VCR did not. I had to set it myself. My only concern is that, on April 1, the VCR will go up another hour! I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

I Saw the Eclipse!!!

Posted 03-04-2007 at 09:13 AM by sigmagirl91
I have to admit....I was totally clueless about what was going on! I thought that the clouds were hiding the majority of the moon and hoped they'd get out of the way so I could get an uninhibited view of the majestic full moon. But the obscurity of the moon continued for a few more minutes as I took my customary evening drive along the countryside.

More Teaching

Posted 02-23-2007 at 11:06 AM by sigmagirl91
Thus far, I'm having some kick-ass days in teaching. The nervousness that usually accompanies me when I teach is just about gone. Staying focused and having a game plan have helped me tremendously. I'm improving every day, and it's getting easier.

Today, I'll have my students presenting their advertising campaigns to demonstrate their understanding of propaganda. They sort of understand it, but this will reinforce it even more. I expect some great things from them, since many...

Thursday, teaching went really well. The students are talking more about the novel.

I have several students who have read and several others who are talking as well about the novel. I'm getting comments like "this is pretty good" and "I can't stand (insert character here)." And the writing prompt I asked them to do...many of them understand the makeup and motivations of their character. I'm pleased.

They know they have work to do this weekend...
