Hello all, for those who do not know me, I've been teaching middle school now for three years. I went to school to teach Social Studies, but somehow landed in an 8th grade English position. My desperate attempts to escape Language Arts have failed, and for the foreseeable future, I am stuck. I do enjoy my students (most of the time), and I am learning to enjoy my subject area. However, I am sure that there will be many posts in which I will vent, whine, or complain about my plight.
On the other hand, I am extremely lucky to have a job in the current economy, so I don't plan on making this blog completely negative. I would like to post a little about everything I enjoy: food, cats, working out, trying new things, friends, family, etc.
*As a side note: for anyone tempted to take the time to edit my blog for grammar, usage, or mechanics...do not be surprised that this "accidental" English teacher is not perfect. I am thankful for those people who can devote such attention to detail....but I am not one of them yet!
