I've been to my share of faculty meetings, back-in-the-day.
You know the drill - after school, the teachers are exhausted and want to get home, principal's going through an agenda that seems to have nothing to do with day-to-day teaching (if you're reading this, sorry, Mom!), and if you're lucky, someone brought a goodie to share.
Well, I attended a great faculty meeting today.
(hand raising from the back row of blogdom)
"Um, excuse me? Don't you. . . um. . . .homeschool?"
Heh. My principal (read: Yurii) gave me the entire day to hang out here:
Coffee-o-logy, the uber-cool coffee shop in the world's best public library.
OK, that last part's debatable. But the coffee shop is uber-cool. If only I drank coffee. (The pannini was amazing.)
Four lovely hours, no interruptions (other than lunch and starting Jane Eyre), and a pretty decent wireless connection. Finished planning schedules, and was able to organize and input about 3 months worth of assignments.
May I recommend a back-to-school faculty meeting to all my friends?
(and getting called into the principal's office isn't so bad, either! Thanks honey - I love you!)
