This summer has flown by! I had all kinds of plans before the summer started, but I had to change some plans when I spent the first half of the summer with a cast on my arm. Still, I finally finished my Master's in Education, which freed up a lot of my time. I got to work at my summer choir camp, and I took a class to learn a new method of reading tutoring for my students. I spent a lot of time with my friends--yes, Pokemon hunting was involved--and I binge-watched Orange is the New Black and Grey's Anatomy. I've gotten to read some good books and am now looking forward to a weekend getaway before going back to work. I'm excited for the new school year to start and to try out all of my new ideas in my math class! I still have some things to prepare in the next few weeks, but even though the summer has been short, it's been pretty good. And ere's what happened on the blog!
