A learning experience…

on November 10, 2010

Hello families of B3!

This week has been a learning experience.  First of all, I have had to opportunity to learn more about our justice system.  It has been very interesting.  I was called onto a civil case on Monday and yesterday we deliberated and made a verdict as a jury. Being on a jury reminded me of being a student.  I was placed into a new experience where I had to listen and absorb new information.  I had to work with a group of people and we had to agree on a verdict.  I had to listen to others, offer my opinion, and evaluate and analyze the facts and evidence.  I have enjoyed the experience, but wish I could still be at school with my students.

I know this has also been a learning experience for the students of B3.  They were expecting, and so was I, to have Mrs. V. as a guest teacher.  Mrs. V. has been in out classroom before and knows the procedures as well as the students.  Sadly, Mrs. V had a situation that she needed to take care of at the last minute.  So we have a new guest teacher.  I came into B3 after school on Tuesday and realized that homework was not passed out.  It should come home today.  Do not worry about getting it all done by Friday, get what you can done.  I will be in school on Thursday because it is Veteran’s Day and all government buildings will be closed.  If I do not get assigned to a case today I will also be able to be in school on Friday.  I still do not know about next week.  Thank you for being so understanding.  It is so hard for me to be gone!  Please let me know what I can do to help.  Thank you again!
