I've had some spotty internet access this week, plus I'm really busy, so blogging hasn't been a priority. I'm still struggling to get everything done for the kids by Monday. I still have several hundred copies of syllabi, drill packets, letters home, benchmarks, et el., to make, so I will be heading in over the weekend to finish up some work.

However, it's anonymous, and, while I write nothing that is slanderous or libelous (I don't think), I certainly do not want students reading this thing. For over seven years, I have enjoyed the light contact with the world that blogging has given me, but have never had any desire for students to read. I have, at times, had inclinations that students might be reading, and have decided to ignore them - but the thought of it in the back of my head has made me censor myself. The interaction is making me reflect on this strange aspect of my life, whether I should continue with it here or not.
