One of my favorite things in life is creating electronic documents, so being on the computer and creating things is relaxing for me–I know, it must be some kind of a disorder, right?? Once I’ve made plans and typed them for my lesson plan binder, it really doesn’t take any extra time to post them online. It seems like such a waste for me to spend so much time creating materials and developing plans, only to have them used one time each year–especially when there are thousands of teachers out there trying to make plans for the same thing. I see my students every day (so, 5 days/week) for 45 minutes. Happy Wednesday 🙂
