As I’ve become a more ‘experienced’ teacher (you could also read that as an OLDER teacher) I have realized that working late into the evenings on school nights is not a good idea. The creaky bones and foggy brain that follow me into the next day are just not copacetic. So – I now devote a good chunk of Saturdays marking and Sundays planning. Teddy (beautiful creature above) has figured out that the best way to still get to hang out with me is to stake his perch early on in the weekend. I like having him keep me company here at my desk … but … if you look you’ll see that his paw rests on the POWER key.
