So much to blog, so little time

Today is a statewide in-service day, and for teachers this means that the morning must be dedicated to some sort of professional development. Most teachers are somewhere in the first leg of some marathon lecture where they are sitting in a butt-numbing seat, sipping a crappy cup of coffee, and noshing on a cold, stale cinnamon roll.

I, however, being the clever girl that I am, have arranged it so I could work from home. In fact, my boss’s exact words were, “You could work from Tahiti on Friday for all I care.” So either he really likes me, or he wishes I could be relocated somewhere far, far away.

Anyway, I got to write my own “professional development plan” for today, and my focus for the day is “curriculum development.” I had this idea that I would create a number of class discussion blogs for each course, and in order to do that effectively I would first need to put in some “research” time.

That’s right, folks, I will be spending my entire day blogging, and the state will be paying for it. Sheer genius.

So hopefully I will be able to make a few posts and post a comment or two on some blogs maintained by the rest of you yahoos doing what you can to avoid work today. Happy blogging!

BOL - excellent work, my friend! Are we "Yahoos" or "Clowns". "Yahoo" may also be an underrated insult. I like it. I like it a lot.

Yahoo - the not so scary sibling of the clown. "Clowns" - good, but a little frightening.

should have checked out AIM also - we could have exchanged briliances - I had a course blog once - you could read all the brilliant things my students had to post to make their grade.

Okay, I need to have the low down on how the class blog worked. Was it worth the trouble, etc. I have many more questions to ask....
