because tomorrow I will be thrown into reality. . . a reality so bedazzled by the uncommon core that by the time the students arrive Thursday I will be completed discombobulated. . .oh how I long to join your journey. I vote for the term "retire with rigor " or " retire like a champion" to be the new buzzword in education. Until I post again have fun and chuckle with rigor as you see the school busses driving by!!!!
