Friday The 13th - Not The Movie

It's been a busy week at school for us. In addition to the ski club, there was also a hockey game last night and I got to work the canteen. Unfortunately, we lost but we still have a great bunch of hockey players.

Some of the things I got pictures of this week include the following math huddle - could a math teacher ask for anything more?!

(Some of last semester's students are tutoring this term's students. )

I also teach Grade 11 English this year and we've started on our first novel.

Davene is busily reading Medicine River in English Class. Apparently she's a little camera shy.

Our ever-posing Sam and Randie also hard at work. Sam is the only female player on our senior high hockey team that played last night. She is awesome!

Heather and Vicki doing their best to look both beautiful and studious for the camera.

Kaylene and Miranda above and Kaylene and Daniel below, all working away and loving every minute of it, you can tell by those big grimaces smiles on their faces!!!

Even the boys hiding in the back corner are actually working! Ezekiel, Dennis and Kris - maybe not so much with the loving it but at least their doing it!

It's good to have the kids back in school. I missed them over Christmas and I really enjoy working with them each day. They may not say the same as I nag, cajole, lecture and brow beat them to get them to do their work. But in the end, I hope they'll succeed academically and beyond.

Happy weekend, M
