Musing About a Merry-Go-Round

at 6:26 PM 0 comments
There's a new country song out by Kacey Musgraves that's caught my attention. It's hit a chord in my soul, possibly because of my upbringing. If you didn't know me, you'd probably never guess. But I was born in Upstate New York on a Navy Base and spent the first large part of my life in South Carolina on or around a base. I didn't move to the Bay Area until Junior High. But I've always loved the idea of a small-town feel. The best part of my job last year was knowing that if I wanted to, I could spend my entire life in that community. My heart yearned for it. That's one of the reasons I had to leave. I knew I wasn't supposed to be there, and I couldn't stand the idea of falling in love with the community (the families, the traditions, all of it...) knowing that the school could collapse at any minute. I don't enjoy change, and the school was anything but stable. I can't stand big cities, so I enjoy suburbia, knowing that I'm close enough to visit a city, with all the comforts of a city, without the jarring, changing nature of it. But I'd much enjoy living in a smaller community.

The song is called "Merry 'Go Round"

Class Dojo

Now, I know I haven't updated in a while, and I have a TON of things I need to upload (like Christmas Crafts!) but I just have to post my initial thoughts and reactions to the new behavior program I started today.

It's called Class Dojo. It was introduced to me by a co-worker during a staff meeting in November. I liked the idea, but wanted to wait until the new semester to start implementing it.
