And You Want to Teach What?

Yesterday while composing, editing and posting my previous blog post, I zipped off an email.  I was so excited about the idea of teaching an advanced English course, my head was spinning.  Today while post-conferencing, my wonderful administrator smiled sideways at me and asked if I had noticed the slip in my email. 


With a forged late slip in hand – Ms. Saas is late for class because she was busy chatting with the Boss – I zoomed into Creative Writing class and shared my error.

What a great slip!  I gave myself two enthusiastic thumbs up.  My kids offered chocolate covered coffee beans, smiles and much unsolicited suggestions for change:

“You need to proof-read your work Ms. Saas”

“You really should conference more Ms. Saas.”

 “Edit, edit, edit.”
