After school today I tried a new approach to after school work. I packed up my old kit bag and headed to a coffee shop. I worked there for 60 minutes, then I called it quits. The barrista made me a special kind of iced tea which was refreshing. The coffee shop was clean and quiet. I had a muffin. In other words, I'm being more like the teachers of Finland this year.At the beginning of the summer I wrote a blog entry pretending the summer was over and congratulating myself on what a great time I had. Do you remember that? Well, come to find out, I'm asking the Thirdlanders to write a similar piece, pretending it's the last day of third grade and they're describing why it was the best year ever. Most of them are writing about all the fun field trips we took. I may have to up my game in the field trip department.
One last thing. I got an electrical shock this evening when I turned on the garbage disposal. Now I'm not sure if I should turn it on again.
