Sacramento city schools begin the new year tomorrow. I’m as set as I’m going to be, and it should be a good year. My Intermediate English class  has turned into a combination Beginners/Intermediate, including some Beginners with learning challenges, so that class will be interesting 🙂

I’ll also be teaching a double-period ninth-grade English class, Pre-IB ninth-grade English (this one will be a first for me), and an IB Theory of Knowledge class.

Posts might be a little less frequent this month as I get my footing in the new classes, and as I make revisions to the first draft of my forthcoming book, Student Self-Motivation, Responsibility, and Engagement: Practical Answers to Classroom Challenges. I need to get that manuscript squared-away by the end of September.
