Nothing Here!

Tuesday, August 7, 2012
OK. We are only 2 days into the school year and I am already finding out how hard it is to teach and keep up a blog. Of course, kids aren't here yet, but we are having inservice days. Today we had 7 hours of professional development. Yes, 7 hours. Four hours in the morn and 3 after lunch. Can I just say...I do not have that type of attention span! Yes, the speaker was great. But after 1 1/2 hours, my brain was done. And by the 5th hour, I can't tell you what was being said any more. It was practical; it was useful. I just wish I could have paid a bit more attention!

I wonder how many times I do that to my students. I like to talk. I can talk and talk and talk in class. I'm sure my students sit there and click off at about 10 minutes or less.

Then, I come home and look at all my amazing blogging friends. They are still creating amazing products, posting them, blogging about them and the list goes on. How do they DO it? Really. I want to know.

So today, I really have nothing. I just want to say I am keeping up with my blogging!


  1. Pam we feel ya!
    First off, we are terrible students! Staff meetings, staff development, inservices-all incredibly painful and we have the attention span of a gnat!
    Second, we were just talking about how on earth we are going to keep up with everything-and there is 2 of us!!! Just keep on keepin on and be the best you. It's impossible to keep up with the blogger Joneses!
    Best of luck on your first day. Hope you don't have any gnats! ;)
