Wednesday, April 3, 2024

  • Today, I sent out another STRONG Teacher newsletter about persistence. It’s not too often that I receive feedback, but today I did. It felt good to share something useful. The topic today was persistence.
  • I started rucking recently. It suits me. I purchased my pack from Wild Gym and noticed that they have an affiliate program. I applied and was accepted. I’m hopeful some of my readers will want to check it out. I’m hopeful rucking will get me in better shape as I approach my 50th birthday.
  • It was choir day today, which messed up the schedule. This adds another level of classroom management challenge. I tried to relax some with students to connect. I’d say it was somewhat successful.
  • I have piles of papers on my desk. I should organize them, but the piles remain.

Things to do.

  • Prepare the World War I tests for Friday.
  • Exercise later today, hopefully, a ruck.
  • Get bids for a new windshield. I don’t want to talk about it.
  • Continue to prepare for upcoming student-led conferences.
  • Spend 20 minutes working on Friday’s newsletter.
