Teaching Again

by Shannanigan on 01-19-2010 at 07:48 PM
So, as much as I was sure that I wouldn't be teaching again any time soon, I am a pushover. When the school called me begging me back, I gave in and returned, with a few conditions:

-I refuse to work full time.
-I will not turn in lesson plans for teaching yearbook.

An Article That Made Me Think

by Shannanigan on 04-16-2009 at 01:46 PM

College can be the most amazingly enlightening experience of a lifetime. I loved almost every minute of it, from St. Augustine to organic chemistry, from Chaucer to electricity and magnetism. But we need a distinguished blue ribbon commission to investigate its role as a toll booth on the road to employment, and the obvious person to head up this commission is Marilee Jones.

For Those Days of Uncertainty...

by Shannanigan on 01-19-2009 at 10:18 AM
As a first-year teacher, I've had my days of uncertainty. This picked me up:

Why Do We Need Literature?

By the way, I've applied to a Master's program in English Literature at the University of Puerto Rico (simultaneous opportunity to improve my Spanish - yay!). Keep your fingers crossed for me!
