Dear 12 friends,
  I am back! I wish I could say that I was off traveling the world or busy with some exciting stories but I was busy with volleyball, work, and more work.  I had volleyball all last week and for a girl who never really played sports after the 4th grade this has been interesting.  I haven't been able to get home from work until after 6:00 and that's no fun!  Tucker isn't sure who his mommy is but as I type this he's crawling all over me so I'm pretty sure he's learning.  I have been busy trying new things at work and well they aren't working very well but I am going to keep trying.  I hate having to move so fast but it's what I am supposed to do so I will keep on trucking.  I have to start tutoring my students too but I can't decide the best way to do that.  Do you have any ideas? I have to to tutor 10 students but I don't want more than 2 students at a time because then I can't help them the way I want to.  I tutored 4 kids today after school and I won't lie I am not quite sure I was helpful but I sure did try.  Do you ever feel that you aren't helping?  I don't know how to help these kids and I want to help them but how?  I am at school early, I stay late but my lessons aren't the best and I need to know how to make science information interesting.  Our new ACT program is BORING!  I am teaching my students about science but I know NOTHING about it.  My kids actually revolted on Monday and wanted to know why they were learning about science when I was supposed to be teaching them English.  The funny thing was that we had spent our Monday morning meeting discussing that we had to keep the kids enthusiastic and interested but how do I do that when I don't understand what is going on.  I hate not knowing!  What do you think?

I think I'm jealous that you're home by 6. ;)
