Yeah, I know; I haven't posted much lately.
Let's see if I can explain why.
We're up to our neck in SAGE testing at school. For those of you who haven't heard, there's a good deal of controversy over the test and the Common Core all over the nation, and, well, Utah's gone berserk over it. Plus, I teach in a school district that requires more a LOT more standardized testing than any other in the state. Bleah.
So, my life has been all about testing this week. And I pretty much can't talk about it, as the state school board has sent out two threatening e-mails about how teachers will lose their jobs and license if they spread the word about what's on those tests. So, I can't really blog about SAGE -- except maybe to tell you that the highlight of the week was when one kid got a bloody nose in the middle of testing. Yeah, that was about the BEST thing that happened. The rest was worse.
Then, it's spring. So all the dogs are out. Noise. Lots of noise.
But I can't really blog about that, as I've been told not to.
Then, there's a good deal of political stuff going on in Utah. There's the whole gay marriage bit. And the Ordain Women movement.
I'd LIKE to blog about those, but I've been warned against doing so.
Oh, and there's been some political stuff going on in our own school and the high school. There's a lot of good gossip there, but, again, I can't blog about it.
OK, well BOOKS!! Yes, I can blog about books!
But I've been going through book drought. I've had a hard time finding decent books to read lately. I've been re-reading some of my favorites, but reviews of older books do not make for good blog fodder.
This is why I could be up for the Boring Blog Award lately.
However, my Pinterest boards are buzzing right along, and I pick up sometimes a dozen new followers daily. Take a gander, if you like. You can find me here.
