Teaching in the basement!

I'm afraid to wake up!  This school year is like I imagined teaching would be when I taped my world map on the basement wall and played school!  AWESOMELY AWESOME!  We've got a great new bunch of energetic, young, eager teachers who are an inspiration - and the kids - oh the kids!  Polite, smart little cookies that just make my day - everyday!  I LOVE SCHOOL!

Check out the new links I added to looneyteachr's links on http://looneyteachr.com  and follow me on twitter.com/looneyteachr

Awesome book!

Just started reading Why Are All The Good Teachers Crazy? by Frank Stepnowski - WOW!  He's hilarious and real!  There's some language so goody-two-shoes need not read - but it's an honest portrayal of the life of a great teacher and what teaching's really like - check it out!
