One of the things that I have been thinking about A LOT is flexible seating, and whether or not I can do it in a high school classroom. I don't think I am ready to implement it any time soon, but I keep thinking about it, reading about it, looking for ideas and guidance... Maybe one day.
And WHAT I REALLY WANT TO GET BETTER AT is keeping track of attendance. Why is it so difficult for me to take attendance? Thank goodness this year I don't have a Home Room! First year in the ten years I have been teaching at my high school. You have no idea how many times the secretary has asked me to submit Home Room attendance through the PA system. Embarrassing.
I've thought about putting a student in charge of reminding me to take attendance. I have a post-it on my desk that says ATTENDANCE with big bold letters.... nothing. I keep forgetting. So when I go back on the 25th of this month I am taking this picture with me:
Have a great end of the school year everyone!
