Teaser Tuesday (August 23, 2011)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
  • Then visit MizB and add your link!

Despite all their creativity, teachers and staff were so busy taking care of moment-to-moment tasks like supervision and student discipline that they couldn't take care of chronic issues like fixing the curriculum skills class, coming up with a system to track detention time, or figuring out which teachers were floundering worse than others.  Professional development sessions were planned and pulled together in a rush at the last minute.

    Hate to think of "floundering" teachers. Were there always "floundering" teachers? I thought all teachers were so dedicated at one point in time.(:
