Today one of my students asked if we could play video games on the TV I have in my room. When I said no, he asked if we could during the last week of school. It hit me then, I'm teaching these students for an entire year! June is a really long time from now and I'm the only one teaching them math from now until then. I hadn't realized that I'm in this for the long haul. It appears I'm doing well though, I've covered all but one section of the list I got today of 1st quarter topics. Granted it would have been great to have that list before school started, but at least me making it up as I went along coincided with what the veteran teachers thought would be good.
This weekend is a mini-reunion! Four MHC '07-ers coming to stay in my 1 bedroom apartment. It should be fun times.
