My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

I'm in the family room with a gaggle of teens.

We have the first round basketball games on the big screen.

The random comments,silly stories and one-liners are flying around the room.

I'm balancing on an exercise ball, trying hard not to fall over, typing away at the blog.

Everyone keeps checking their brackets, yelling at the screens.

It's an interesting kind of bonding.  It's fun.  

I'm sure they are all ready for me to head back upstairs.

But I'm gracing them with my presence.

Lucky kids!

Watching basketball with the kids is a good detox

On the night before the last day of school before spring break.

  1. I love this! My favorite lines are "I'm sure they are all ready for me to head back upstairs. But I'm gracing them with my presence."

  4. It's good to be among your "gaggle of teens". So important to bond and enjoy them.

  5. Currently, it sounds like a fun place to be ... you forgot to mention that it was also on THE COUCH -- the one of friendship, rainbows and hugs.

  6. The couch! Your gaggle of teens look like they're having a blast - and you do too! This was a fun slice to read and I love that you added the photo!
