1. Old hymns. They make me emotional but I feel guilty sometimes because many of them carry messages opposite to my core beliefs.
2. Summer with autumn a close second. #teachersoflitsy
3. I'm a super eclectic reader, but YA. I teach 11th grade English.
4. First day at school without students. Hoping I can talk my colleagues into going out. If not, home for leftovers.
5. Will do!

lahousewyfe So there with you on those old hymns. I grew up with them and even have a CD of my uncles singing them. Those melodies are so sweet, but the words...oh my goodness. Amazing Grace always makes me cringe! 1mo
Crazeedi Old hymns yes yes yes. Wish I had thought of that, I sing them all the time 1mo
RestlessFickleBookHoarder 3. I'm curious to know what books are on your 11th grade curriculum. 1mo

DebbieGrillo @RestlessFickleBookHoarder there are no specific required books on our curriculum. Our curriculum in New Brunswick is quite Progressive and it focuses on skills and literacy rather than literature. This year I Read To Kill a Mockingbird with my 11th graders. Next year I am considering The Marrow Thieves or The 57 Bus. TKAM is comfortable for me but they don't love it. I will also do Macbeth. 1mo
Hoopiefoot Right there with you on old hymns. Grew up in the church & my first job was a church pianist. I‘m not religious any more but they‘re ingrained in me like nothing else. Often find them popping into my head on long hikes & runs. 1mo
RestlessFickleBookHoarder I wish our district didn't have required books. Actually ours has a list teachers can choose from so I guess that's better than nothing. TKAM is a 9th grade book here, but in my not and English teacher opinion there are better options than that. 1mo
RvnclawWhovian Omg old hymns!! My grandma used to play a record all the time, can‘t remember the name of it now though 1mo
