Well, I’ve only managed to bump my count by 500 words (up to 6,425)… man, that 50K is looking further and further away. Today I did have a slightly reasonably reason for not getting things done though – I had to go to some training. I don’t know about the rest of the group, but personally I feel like a better, more prepared and generally just ‘with-it’ teacher now.
For what it’s worth Sera (the teacher trainer that replaced Lorna last month) did a good job of keeping us all doing stuff, and the material fit the topic. Basically what it came down to though was the subject was ‘classroom management’ and no matter how long and how hard you talk/think about it… kids are going to be kids. It was however a nice way to spend some time with some of the other teachers – as we all went out for lunch afterwards. There’s something so gratifying about drinking with people shortly after noon… perhaps it’s just when there’s a lack of people it makes me feel sad. 😉
After lunch a group of us went to the Electronic City by Carrefour (near Future 3) and did some serious DVD shopping. Though there were a number of others I would have liked to have got, I limited myself to these six:
Mail Order Wife
& A Life Less Ordinary
Ok, self-affirming way I’ve wasted time today:
Thanks to Eric for making me feel good about myself. He’s 22% stupid.
