..........And We're Back!

So, after a terribly boring summer on the Trentoblog, packed full of random funny things that I put up just to keep you reading to fill that horrible void in your life, SCHOOL IS BACK IN SESSION!

It's the end of the second week of school and I feel pretty good about things. I've moved to a new school due a demon in Memphis City Schools called "surplussing." Basically, a school receives a projection of how many students they'll have the next year and if that projection is lower than the current number, teachers have to go. I really loved my old school, Kingsbury Middle School; it was run incredibly efficient, which is a testament to the great administration and teachers there, but all good things must come to an end. I was the least senior teacher on staff, so I got my packing orders. I am now at Kate Bond Middle School, a brand-new school in northeast Memphis and it's a dream come true. Wonderful facilities, great resources and great kids. They're all (well, not all, but a good chunk) so well-behaved, it's kind of scary that I'm not more stressed out. Oh well, I'll take it. But, more behaved means less hilarious stories from kids who speak without thinking about it first. But I'll do my very best to bring you the funnies.

Journal Prompt: "Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 10 years? What can you do now to ensure that you get there?"

AJ's Response: "I see myself being a biomedical engineer. A biomedical engineer makes leg implants and hip implants. In five years, I see myself in high school preparing to go to Princeton..."

Way to go, A, way to go.

Journal Prompt: "If you could fly somewhere for 7 days, where would you go and why?"

DR's Response: "I would go to Mexico to visit all of my family there...The last day I would get me some nice intelegent fine looking girls & party with them."

Well, at least they're intelligent.
