So now I'm knee-deep in summer mode which, unfortunately, many people seem to think means I am doing nothing for school. Of course, I'm not spending hours every day focused on school and work but I am not completely idle. On a daily basis I am trying to prep for teaching Geometry next year for the first time in five years. I am going through the curriculum we use (College Prep Math) and realizing how wonderful it is and how much better it will be for me than when I taught Geometry back in Philadelphia without any supporting curriculum except for old books that relied on t-chart proofs. So I am spending about an hour each day (except Saturdays) working out what my students will be doing come September.
And I am also relaxing. Why? Because teachers need it. And, because honestly, we are paid only for 10 months worth of work!
My honeymoon begins in 8 days and I'm excited to experience a world trip with my wife of a little more than a year. And I'm going to be posting a lot on my travel blog (www.gateb3.com) so check it out! I'll try to keep up with some education news and post here as well.
