Panic and Pandemonium

Pin It

Teachinfourth, where have you been?

Ah, good question.

Whist I could have been online posting, I chose not to…mostly because all of said posts would have been a rundown of daily tasks—okay, make that a rundown of daily panic and pandemonium…hence my life in the last month or so of school.

I have found myself inundated with things screaming for my attention; however, one of the most incessant was the one I ignored most plaintively. I am now paying the price—or rather will tomorrow night; with the eyes of thousands upon me.

Of course, I was so resolute on making sure that my students weren’t goofing off during practices that I didn’t practice too much myself; I’m rather pathetic at present on the gestures, signs, and motions simply because I was not going to be performing.

Or so I thought; however, I was recently informed that I will be in the performance along with my class.

Le gulp…

Nothing like last-minute panic to get us to ‘cram’ for that final presentation, is there?

I love the Hope of America! You'll have fun and no worries. I'm sure you'll do fine.

Good luck. Kory is so excited.

Awesome. Do you have a dance solo or anything? Are you one of the people on the floor or in the sea of red, white and blue?

Good luck.

Just wanted to wish you big luck (that's a lot) and we better see some pictures or hear some crazy stories out of this :)

Wow. I've never seen anything like that--we certainly don't undertake anything quite that ambitious here in VA, esp. on the elem. school level. Looks like a lot of work, but very cool. How many schools are involved? Best of luck, and have fun!
