We are getting...

I love sauerkraut and have a store bought jar in my fridge right now.

I really like kimchi, but it is hard to find around here.

That sounds like a fun class.

Yeah, that is off.

But we started off the school year not inviting the special ed teacher to meetings because we were not getting subs. That lasted about two weeks.

Right now we are supposed to...

I believe I have posted before about the three admin in my building dedicated to in-person behaviors who have not been repurposed to do something different while the entire district is remote.

Lesson plans

We had micromanaging of checking the lesson plans before virus. Plans had to be turned in by late Sunday night.

Our annuals are scheduled for 45 minutes and re-evals are 60 minutes.

Aquaphor may not seem initially cheap, but as we head into winter it serves so many skin purposes for me: eye cream, moisturizer, face mask and burn and cut ointment. One container lasts a long time....
