I finished my first week of teaching today. I am so freaking tired. The early morning preparation and the evening reviews are just too much.
This morning, I went to Walmart. To get the kids to understand packet encapsulation, I had them surround a jumbo marshmallow with a cube and that cube was encapsulated by another cube. If you ever want the cashier at Walmart to look at you like your are crazy, just buy $20 worth of toothpicks and marshmallows.
I will say that I have a new found respect for teachers and professors. I don’t know how they do it.
