It's Tuesday and it has been one of those thought provoking weeks where I stand back and the end of my day throwing my "lesson plans" to the side because what my kids wanted to do was SO much more productive then what I had "planned." I am so blessed that I live in a school and a district that allows me to teach in this fashion as long as I "map" what I have taught. (Don't worry, I will have it by the end of the year. I take really good notes.)

I stood looking at their ideas thinking, "I love my job." That was Monday.
