Halloween Fun

We went Trick-or-Treating at the fair last night. We weren't sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. The kids got more candy than any two kids should have and our costumes were a big hit.

And if you're wondering what happened to my blogging ... I've been meaning to post an update but there is just not enough hours in the day anymore. I took a job teaching AP Calculus, AP Statistics, Intensive Math and Academic Development at Columbia High. Yep ... back at CHS. It's a completely different place. It's going well but i'm super busy and still trying to catch up. Starting that far into a school year is not something I would recommend to anyone. It's rough but i'm making it happen. I'm still teaching at the college at night. As much as I love doing that, I could really use those hours back right now. We'll see what happens next semester. I'm not so happy about teaching Intensive Math again ... it's something I promised myself I would never do again but it's a stepping stone this time. I will probably be teaching math and science next year and really hope to not have four Intensive Math classes. I really enjoy my AP classes even if it is a ton of work to prep for. It's been many years since I've done any calculus or statistics so I have a lot of studying to do to stay ahead of my students. I'm putting in long days and lots of weekend hours. It will probably be this way again next year to some extent since I'll have some different classes. But ... I should have more time to prepare ahead next year. I was hired on a Thursday and started teaching on Monday. Three days was just not enough to catch up to where my students were. The first couple weeks were really rough but things are much smoother now.
