English Language Arts
How would describe a typical day?
My typical day is long, that’s first. There is some routine. There are some things that I have down in routines. For instance when my students come in, I greet them every day. We do DAP, Pacer for Life. I get a chance to gauge how they are doing. But to just have that interaction, that is consistent. Also consistent is that they sign in. But then after that, it’s varied. There are so many different things that can go on. There is some routine to it but a lot of it, you may have something planned and your plan, many times, is going to be either modified by what’s going on or it’s just going to go straight out the window. My typical day is very long. Sometimes I’m closing out with the custodians to get the work done, to get the planning done, get the grading done and then waking up early and starting it over again.
