Scene: It’s the last ten minutes of class. We have finished reading chapter 21 of Percy Jackson.
Me: “OK Class! Look at the screen. I need you to click on the link my mouse is on.”
*points to journal response link*
I explain the question then say, “Once you have submitted your response you can go on Typing Club.”
Student 1: “Miss, can I go on Tinder? I need a man.”
Student 2: “Tinder? What’s that?”
Student 1: “I’m lonely and need a man!”
Me: “No, you cannot go on Tinder.”
7:10 - I woke up in a panic because I slept through three alarms.
7:35 - I’m stuck in the traffic
7:55 - I arrive to a chaotic room
8:05 - We begin our morning circle
8:15 - One student was tripped by a plant while going to her desk.
8:16 - I make my way through the crowd of laughing students to find a crying girl and a broken vase
8:20 - After assessing the girl’s injuries, I power walk to the kitchen for some ice.
8:21 - I fell face first and slid
8:22 - I gracefully recover with a bow towards the bystanders
8:25 - I acquired the ice
8:30 - I walk back in my classroom and get caught on the door knob causing me to fall.
The rest of the day followed the tone of the morning.
