let's. get. fired. up!

I've been in teacher inservice training for three days and I'm actually pretty pumped up about school starting. Our district brought in a "big deal" conference to get us all inspired and ready to change the world and I have to say I was really impressed. I feel like I'm ready to be a better teacher this year. (Last year I was pregnant all year long, August-May.) So I feel like I have to make up for a grouchy year!

I had to share this video clip that was shown in one of our workshops this week. It's kind of long (3 minutes) but it's really funny. The relevance to teaching is how occasionally as teachers we try to 'make something up' when our students ask us something we don't know the answer to (who does that??)...
