Another round of interesting sludge…

So I’m currently in the process of creating an appropriate cover-letter for sending out applications early, before some schools even post positions. I feel like I’m doing more work than what I should be doing, but after the horrendous fall out that was last year, I really need to make sure that I find a job that uses my certificate. Not to mention finding a job that doesn’t make me want to pull my hair out!
I also started work last night on the rough sketching of a lesson plan for Chaucery’s The Canterbury Tales. I’m really starting to realize how much I actually missed thinking about engaging students at the level that I prefer to work at. It’s amazing how much you miss it after you’re stuck working with a level that you really feel is a worthless effort. (I know, that’s sad for any educator to say, but I am so burnt out at this poitn I don’t care.)
I’m also currently debating about putting up my lesson plans on GoogleDocs to share with other teachers…or maybe adding them onto here. I have yet to really decide. Any ideas?
Also, a massive congrats to Jamie for the new arrival! :-D
