Miscellany Monday

As usual, I'm linking up with Carissa for this weeks edition of

It's finally Thanksgiving week.  We only have 2 days of school, and we are all so happy!  I think everyone here at MCHS is ready for a few days off....I know I am!!

Speaking of school, I'm disturbed at the number of my students who are doing CRAZY things and getting in trouble....and when I say CRAZY things, I mean things that are so out-of-character and obviously wrong...especially in a school setting!!  One was suspended last week for bringing a knife to school, and two were suspended today for *sexual misconduct*!  I know these kids are teenagers, and teenagers do CRAZY things, but my goodness..... :(

I've felt rotten all day today. 
Enough said about that....

Lawren enjoyed her visit with the speech therapist from my former school.  She says she may be interested in studying SLP after high school.  I'm also going to set up a job-shadowing visit for her with an occupational therapist.  At least she's narrowed down the therapy part so she can begin work on her career portfolio for English class.

Today, MJ told me that she's interested in studying to be a dental hygienist after high school.  Good choice MJ!  I'm proud that you are at least thinking about the future!

(better not leave out Charles...)
Charles' world revolves around hunting these days.  He gets up early to go duck hunting.  After lunch, he goes and sits in a deer stand until it gets dark, then he's off with his buddies and his dog "coon" hunting.
Oh, and he is still going to EMT school....hopefully that won't interfere too much with hunting...

Go check out Dolly's Monday's Music Moves Me meme!  It is so much fun to peruse Youtube every week and post songs with a specific theme!  This week's songs are to be about things we are thankful for.  Here's a link to my posting...
Have a great Monday, y'all!


  1. You sure have found a lot of hops - I can never find any ... I'll have to checkout your links :) BTW, are the twins in soccer uniforms? That was my guess. Following you from today's hop - hope you can stop in soon and return the favor - oh, and chekc out my shameless plug for my book that's on sale right now through Amazon :)

  2. Yikes! That's pretty scary about what your students are doing!!

  3. i hope you're feeling better!

    the rotten things teens do make my heart so sad. i'm sure you see so much as a teacher.

    happy thanksgiving! enjoy your break.
