General Thoughts

Posted by Laura Grissom on 3/23/2020

Wow! I have learned about so many apps over the last few days.  I am fortunate to have many incredible colleagues such as Mr. Gantz, Mrs. Sjol, and Ms. Cross (AHS), Mrs. Lindemulder and Ms. Kuh (CHHS), and Ms. Yu  (DAL) to plan and interact with.  We've been discussing the best possible course of action for the next few weeks.  It is important to me that those of you in AP don't just do well on the AP Test (if you elect to take it), but that all of you (10 Honors included) are also equipped with the necessary skills to be ready for the work you'll have at the next level - whether college or the next level AP class.  If you guys have any questions or just need to vent because you're stressed or bored, I'm here for you.  I am still your English teacher and I sincerely value each and every one of you  - I probably think about each of you more than you even realize.  Even those of you who sit in the back and barely speak up, and even those of you who sit up front and constantly chit chat with me, and even all of you in between.  I am here to help you.  I do have two kids, two dogs, some fish, a bird, and a husband (arguably the one requiring the most work and attention) to juggle.  But when I'm not teaching, momming, or wifing (yes, I made those up) I'm pretty much watching Netflix or some other streaming service or playing Fortnite, Minecraft, or Stardew Valley. I also sleep, but I haven't been doing much of that lately it seems.  I hope y'all are getting plenty of sleep - especially those of you who used to have to be at class by 6:30 a.m.  I'll check in later.
