The scariest moment is always before you start. –Stephen King
SOLC: Day One
Not only is this the first time I am accepting the Slice of Life Challenge–to write every day during the month of March, but this is my first post as a blogger.
Ok so I have been staring at my computer screen for a half an hour…is this normal? With a pen and a notebook I can fill up a page in no time. But my fingers are hesitant to touch the keys like they are forbidden to do so or something.
One of my 8th grade students sent me an email today with a poem attached that she thought I would appreciate. This is the moment that nerdy teachers live for. A student read a poem that she found on tumblr and thought of her Literacy teacher–I’m on cloud nine. It was one of those poems where you first read it top to bottom then read it from bottom to top. A poem with a double meaning. Some days the kids seem so distant and uninterested especially 8th graders. They have their minds on high school and are so done with Junior High. It is little things like this that make my day. Pretty cool.
