Paperbacks that arrived this week from publishers:
I survived Homecoming week! Each day was a ‘dress down’ theme (I teach in a private school, so the kids wear uniforms normally. Dress down days are a BIG deal). Monday-PJ day, Tuesday-Jersey day, Wednesday-Red, White, and Blue, Thursday-Favorite Character, and Friday was our homecoming shirts and a pep rally. We also have the “spirit olympics” during the rally. The kids play silly minute to win it type games and compete for their grade level. Seniors always win (they cheat) but everyone has fun. Its so loud though my ears hurt!
This week is back to normal but I have to be at work on both Saturday and Sunday. So that means I will work 14 days straight. Saturday I have to administer the ACT, then Sunday we have open house. Its gonna be a LONG week.
I’m binging on the new season of Making a Murderer. I’m not sure if Avery is innocent or not (however, I do respect Kathleen Zellner so that does make me more likely to believe he is innocent), but what I find truly appalling is the way Brendan Dassey was treated. As a special education teacher, I am terrified that something like this would happen to a student of mine. What happened to Brendan is so infuriating and I am upset that he is still, many years later, trying to fight it. Have you watched the series? What are your thoughts?
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
