School's Out

It's official. Teachers are more excited than the students when school gets out.
Think about it...how much work did you actually do in high school? (If you were like me, not much). How much did your teachers have to do?
Yesterday I turned in my keys and my parking pass. I am now a free man. It was sad to realize that I wouldn't ever see most of the students and the other science teachers again, but it was very nice telling a problem student who's failing the class and asking if he can bring stuff in tomorrow to raise his grade, "I'm not going to be here. You'll just have to take the class again next year."
In a week we travel to SLC to get on a plane to Cincinnati...we'll visit there for a week, visit the school, find an apartment. April already has one job interview set up.
We move there in mid-July.
In other news, my laptop came in a week ago. Very nice, very quick computer. It starts up about 10 times faster than my desktop.

Tim, congrats on law school and the last day of school! I hope all goes really well.

I was laughing so much about what you told the problem student, I'm sure he deserved it and I think it is awesome that you could say it.

Oh, I hope its okay that I'm reading your blog...

At first blush, that sounds kind of harsh. But on the other hand, the kid has had all year to pass the class. And letting him do stuff late would only reinforce the idea that he can get away with slacking off, which just won't cut it in life after school.

It's fair to fail him. I probably shouldn't be so happy about it though...
And old friends are always welcome here.

Are you calling me OLD? :P
