I subbed for a teacher at Newnan High School today -- Euclidean Geometry. I am always reminded about how much I DON'T remember from high school when I sub in these classes. Sigh.
Keri Lynn was in the first block class. The whole day went as smooth as silk. Easiest day I've ever had subbing. They did review worksheets, textbook work and two additional worksheets. "Busy work," Keri Lynn called it when I wrote the assignment on the board. What surprised me the most was that each of the classes broke up into groups and worked diligently on their assignments the whole class period. I was shocked! Usually I have to go around shushing and cajoling and often threatening. By the end of a class period, I've got riddles ready to keep the wolves at bay before they head out the door. None of that was needed today!
I wrote a note to the teacher stating how well everyone did, and put in a special note about how wonderful a certain Keri Lynn J. is in first block. : )
Tonight, right after dinner, Keith and I will go for our third meeting with Hal, our financial counselor through Crown Ministries. We've been needing help in this area for quite some time now, and at last we bit the bullet and started the very long road to financial recovery.
Now it's time to go make dinner before I run out of time!
