Walking On Air

Got a call from the Assistant to the Head of School at home tonight. And guess what? It's my day to be observed by the Head of School tomorrow. She'll be watching a lesson primarily about run-on sentences.

On Halloween.

With seventh graders.

Immediately after lunch.

I texted some colleagues about this situation. One suggested I wear an inappropriate costume to accentuate the experience. Maybe a spandex Wonder Woman number. Another suggested I dress as Captain Behavior Management.

Here's my plan: I'm going to remind Shef not to pop into my class on his way to lunch. He likes to do that. Sometimes he does a little Gangnam style.

Ugh...what a day to observe! Hope she remembers how holidays can change the behavior of all kids but especially middle schoolers....best of luck! Love, mom

You'll be great! She knows its Halloween and what kids are like! Good luck!

I wish you could change the lesson to be something about serial killers or exorcists.

I'm with LH on this one. You absolutely need to switch up that lesson plan. Mary created a Spooooooky Jeopardy game a few weeks ago for our Spooooooky Girls Night. It comes complete with two serial killer categories: One for Law and Order, one for real-life serial killin'.

Both are highly recommended.

You're a pro at this. I totally think you can handle Halloween, craziness, and run-on sentences.

FYI, this was a total false alarm. She didn't come at that time. She's coming another time. Ho hum.
