|Well... I guess I'll jump in the fray here with my homies A and Babs and Froggie. Welcome to the blogosphere.|
I'll try to give some updates on occasion. For now... I should
sleep. I have to teach 4th graders tomorrow, and I *know* their
teacher isn't going to be pleased with Bush winning or with me voting
EDIT: since Babs asked me, let me explain the 4th grade thing.
I'm involved in a program called GK-12, funded by the federal
government. The program is designed to bring graduate students
into elementary school classrooms (actually K-12, but the University of
Washington group is only doing elementary) for math and science
instruction. Basically, I go in a few times a week and help the
kids learn math. I also help the teacher learn how to help kids
learn math -- and that's the real reason I'm there. Our goal is
that, after a few years in the school, the teachers will be able to
carry on without us.
Since I love kids and I love teaching and I rulez at math, I figured
this was the perfect program for me. So I applied, got accepted,
and am now pulling down a ridiculous salary (plus tuition!) for doing
something I love doing.
