Sigh. I’ve decided to tackle TKAM for a project over here. This will be character building. I just have difficulty picturing some of my students with reading levels equal to Green Eggs and Ham getting much out of this book. Challenge to myself is to find a way to make this accessible to them. To find a way that they can go through the rite of passage of TKAM in high school along with their peers.

I’m going to miss going back into the classroom this fall. The new clothes, the new beginning feel, sitting in boring meetings writing notes with the work girls. I know I’m doing good work here, but I’ll feel a little out of whack right after Labor Day as my “new year” internal clock won’t have the alarm set this year.
