Confession:  Student teaching has been kicking my butt.  I don't know why I decided to take 13 credits of grad work, teach a 7th grade English class, and spend 30+ hours a week in the fine public schools of Brooklyn, but I did.  I am legitimately amazed that I did not collapse during midterms last week (which coincided with all grades becoming due as well).

You can now add captions for photos.  That's pencilrific.
I suppose this is what I signed up for as an English Education major.  Generally speaking, my time is spent teaching reading, reading about writing, and writing about teaching. I also collect present-tense verbs and gerunds.

Anyway, I'm getting to the point.  POINT: I will start blogging again soon.  I have resurfaced after hell week and life is slowly returning to normal.  Although I remain very busy, I will now have more opportunity to procrastinate without immediate and collosal negative repercussions.  Besides, my class deserves a subsitute teacher and a VHS tape every now and then.
