it’s the end of the semester, and for me, the end of my 8th grade math class! from here on out, i will be pulling kids out of 7th grade math instead of having my own class. for an overwhelmed first-year teacher, this is an extremely rare gift. don’t get me wrong– i love these kids, but i certainly wasn’t doing them much good, nor they me.
flashback to the first day of school. ambitions high, i went around with my macbook and got a clip of every student. then i promptly became overwhelmed and never had a chance to make anything of it. until now! (yes, angel & airwaves makes a very convenient video song).
it’s fun to go the nostalgic, “aren’t they so cute; look how much they’ve changed already!” route. i think the kids got a kick out of seeing themselves too.
