    check my blog http://www.tomsboomertimes.blogspot.com to see the first chapter of my book about life in a middle school.

  2. Saii: I’m surprised Facebook isn’t blocked at your school. How in the world do you keep middle schoolers off it?

    CowboyJoe: My lunch hour is actually spent eating and talking with my best friend, who coincidentally teaches 2 doors down. That time is sacred and I don’t spend it on anything else.

    HappyChyck: Yep, nothing like plotting your data to help you analyze it. 😉

    Tom: I know teachers who power nap. That’s an amazing concept. I’m afraid I’d never wake up on time. Thanks for pointing me to your blog–cool!
