Hmm,... Packemin and the presidency.
(I hope Obama does not get his way here. I don't care for his education ideas very much. I didn't see him wearing any of those shirts on his recent vacation. Maybe that is a good sign.)
I spoke to the principal today and we are making some changes. First of all, there are groups 1 and 2. The time when teachers are not dealing with groups time will be devoted to lesson planning.
Also, the 90-minute dept.meeting/ class prep will become 30 minutes meeting and 60 minutes classroom prep/ teacher time. The breakfast is optional but you really have to be there at 8 AM. A note should go out with the corrections today or tomorrow.
So don't think I just sit on my ass all day. Even though that's what I'm doing right now.

Anyone who knows me knows that if there is a Jamaican around, I will sniff him out.
I fell in love with this reggae band that played every day under the track. and I hung out nearby all day (except when I was eating.) The guy on the keyboard is great, but I was in love with the DJ (the one in the middle) and the guitarist. Oh, to be young and single again.
(My husband knows about this obsession and knows I am all talk--no action, so he has no worries.)
A few pictures of the group.
