What a week
The first week of school has come to an end and I am stunned at how fast it went.
Teaching SPEDs at the SDC level in high school is a challenge anytime but with the new common core and no true direction for the special needs kids, well the challenge will be an uphill battle to get the power's that be to understand the true functioning level of this population of students.
With that said.
I have had to take a break from my daily work out of walking 3.5 miles a day due to injuries from my own ignorance. I pushed too hard with out the needed foot supports. I saw my doctor and it will be a few days with the new inserts to allow t my feet to adjust. I am looking forward to getting back on my routine.
In the mean time I have finally dropped over the edge of the plateau that I had been trying to walk over. Go figure.
The only real bummer for the week is the discovery that I have lost an entire chapter of my new book and the character I had written into the story was so much fun to write. Now I have to work at improving the chapter with out the prejudice of editing something on paper and go back into my imagination to recreate the character. Funny thing is I am looking forward to it.
Feeling good and moving forward.
