Some times it is wierd to think that Allison was my teacher (her first year was my senior year). She scared me alot when I was in school. Now I am the opposite of scared of her! She had helped me immensely over the past two years, not sure I will ever be able to handle my self as gracefully as she, but I aspire.

Courtney=the sweetest, most humble person I know.

A week or so ago Lindsay Blain invited me to go to Natasha Scott's coupon class. Unfortunately, I had to go to the primary activity and couldn't make it. Lindsay, however, brought over a giant notebook and masses of coupons and taught me everything she learned. I have had so much fun the past week finding deals with Lindsay. It feels like I'm on a treasure hunt! haha So here is a pic of my first week of booty! Almost everything I got is pictured here except for 4 packs of plastic solo plates and cups and 2 of the OFF clip ons. I got $91.70 worth of stuff for $48.50!!! I am now obsessed and driving Joe nuts with coupons! More updates to come...Hopefully now that I'm on summer vacation I can update more at Renee's request:)

Unnamed student walked up to my desk and asked very quietly "Do you think female dogs can get breast cancer?"
And I was just saying I didn't have anything good to post on my blog. He later followed up with, "Or better yet, what about birds?!"
Pretty sure thats not covered in my curriculum...

Today's question comes from a very sweet student who can be very talkative at times. We just finished watching THE PIANO LESSON by August Wilson because it is Black History Month. We watch the Hallmark movie version. The kids really enjoy it.
SO we finished the movie and said student was completing her assignment: Analyze this play using Aristotle's 6 Elements of Drama (Action, Theme, Character, Language, Music, and Spectacle) She worked all period long and then asked me what she was supposed to write for Theme. I told her to just write a few sentences telling me what the theme of the play is.
Her response :" WHAT'S A THEME?!"
Don't you think by the time you are a sophomore in high school you should have learned what THEME is?! ho hum.
Stay tuned. It's only 2nd period. I'm sure I'll have more to come!
