It's Been a Long Time Since I Blogged

For those of you who followed my blog last school year you may be wondering what happened to my blog. Well I have to say "Life happened!!!!". Last semester I taught 3 blocks of the day and had 1 block as a prep period. I was not coaching last semester either. I have found this semester with teaching 4 blocks and coaching cross country running 4 nights a week I have had little or no time to blog. I hope to change this.

It is interesting though. I really do want to blog and provide extra resources to my students. However, time is necessary to do this. I still have to prepare my daily lessons, mark homework and assignments and fit a few minutes in with my wife and kids.

It would sure nice to have a prep period every semester. That 80 minutes a day makes it possible to keep up with my teaching duties and still blog. Ah, if only dream worlds did exist!!

I definitely have to figure out how to juggle all of the balls in life and still blog.

It's good to hear from you again! I don't envy you the difficult load you're carrying this year. I don't think I could handle such a heavy load. ;-)

I'm running three classroom blogs this year and I thought I wouldn't be able to handle it. Now I've got kids doing most of the posting and they've really taken control. Check out this post at A Difference and then look in on my blogs. Maybe this will help?

Post again when you can.
