I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Refocusing on a few things

How would you spend your day back after having a snow day...?

Starting to build your reading stamina (so that your teacher can have more time for more individualized student attention)? (Yes, that says 3 minutes...gotta start small.)

Jumping into Greek mythology and related activities?

There wasn't a lot I could actually do (or have my students do) today - they were still hyped up about the Super Bowl (and the ads) as well as probably stir crazy from staying inside due to this crazy weather. I tried to be understanding, but at some point, it just becomes ridiculous. There's a time to talk and a time to listen...and they seem to have a little trouble figuring that out sometimes.

Maybe tomorrow will be better...One can only pray that it will be so...
