School's Out for Summer

Okay, so it's been a while since I've posted. A little thing called the school year intervened. It's not that I didn't want to, it's just that I don't have the blogging habit down yet. I post with nearly the same frequency as the appearance of my favorite insect -- the cicada. But anyway, if I'm posting that must mean that the 2005-06 Judge Memorial school year came to a close yesterday. It was a great year. Sorry to say that one of my colleagues, Calli Short, is retiring. She has been a key part of our department for the last 12 years. Gonna miss her. I learned a lot over the past 180 school days, and I got to work with some amazingly talented students this year. One of the more interesting projects was my freshmen English class's podcast collaboration with some students in New York City. In the posts to come, I'm going to tell you the top five things I learned this year.
