Alfani shirtdress, thrifted
Coldwater Creek silk scarf, gift
Some days call for sartorial armor. This is my version. I wore it last week for an observation of a math lesson. What made this observation a bit challenging was that it happened outside of my usual math block. If you know kids, you know bumping them out of their routine can lead to some interesting results. For instance, having a student (usually well-behaved) start making funny noises during the lesson (with the observer sitting there and taking notes) and having to say, "Is that really necessary?"
Besides observations, last week included the usual mad dash to grade papers, record scores, crunch scores, write thoughtful, useful comments, and fill out report cards. I had the kids review and reflect on their report cards yesterday and got a couple of hugs from students who were happy with their comments. One of my professional perks, I suppose!
