DinnerDinner: pork chops in cream sauce, mushroom rice, broccoli, and garden salad with homemade croutons.

We're done with the first class session of the MEd program! The class was a bit tamer than I thought; the prof is taking a roundabout route to teaching actual content, focusing on self-examination and reflection to study the qualities of an excellent teacher. There was a miscommunication that meant we didn't get the class syllabus until today, which means we have a bunch of papers to write that should have been written before the class started. The books we were assigned come from one specific school of thought on teacher education, which was developed in a very different place and time than the one in which we are teaching. Luckily I've been able to do some Googling around and found extra material from competing theories that should be a better fit for our school's situation and my own vision of teaching.Tomorrow is another full-day of class, 8:30-5:30. Wish me luck.

I've read that thing twice now (for two different classes when I was in school)!
