Today's Back To Work "Special"

It was fun while it lasted. But spring vacation is now officially over. Today, I'll be back in front of the classroom teaching history, the WifeWonk will return to her elementary school, and the TeenWonk will go (excitedly) back to 9th grade.

A good student, the TeenWonk completed all of her homework, (Which included an analysis of Erich Maria Remarque's classic anti-war novel All Quiet on the Western Front.) on time and in full.

As for myself, it'll be good to see my students again.

Summer vacation is only "a smile away."

Update:(PM) Well.... no good mood lasts long. Right in the middle of our very first 50 minute period, when the kids were settled down and working well, somebody in the office decided that exact moment would be the best good time* to have our monthly "surpise" fire drill.

*Our school's administrators have been out of the classroom and away from teaching so long that they've forgotten what a challenge it can be to re-establish academic focus after a lengthy vacation.
