Grad school

Well, I thought I would catch up, but alas- blogger has been having issues at my school, so instead of blogging while babysitting, I figured it wouldn't hurt to do some of my homework that I've been neglecting over the past week.... Ya, I'm really behind. 

So far, I've finished 2 lesson plans, a research article, a grant, and reviewed a few articles for an annotated bibliography project in one of my online classes.  I still have a few more things to catch up on, but a few more days and I should have it!

I'm a teacher, and I know that I have no excuse...

I told my professors that I understand if they don't give me credit, and I take complete responsibility, but I would still like their comments if they wouldn't mind looking over my assignments...

I've gotten lucky- every single one has given me most of the credit I deserved (just a few points off for being late). 

I'll have to remember that when one of my students doesn't turn something in and comes clean about the reasons why!


  1. It's amazing how much more work I get done at, you know, work when I don't spend 1/2 the day (or more, let's be honest here) fooling around on the computer.

    Good job on getting your schoolwork done - does that count as setting a good example?

  2. I try to be understanding and accomodating when I'm teaching...it just breaks my heart that by the time they reach college, some (though not necessarily all) students have figured out how to manipulate the system. But I would want grace and understanding, so I try to offer it as much as possible as well (within limits). Hang in there!

  3. I'm glad it's working out for you! Online, we only accept late assignments four days past the due date with 10% deduction each day! It's been so odd lately, I'm sorry we haven't talked.

  4. I recently found your blog and wanted to comment and say I really enjoy it. I am in the RPL boat with you :(

  5. I'm glad to hear you have such understanding professors. That's really awesome. I was having issues with blogger yesterday, too.
