And snow it goes

You know you are a total teacher nerd if you look at the blessing of a snow day as an opportunity to create more mind-blowing, earth-shattering, eye-popping lessons that will leave your students thirsting for more and begging to stay after school for extra credit work.
Forget the idea that you could take some much needed rest or catch up on the reading of trashy novels. Those projects that are piling up in the basement…that’s OK…they’ll be there tomorrow…or next week.
But the idea that a thought provoking PowerPoint or a super spectacular webquest that will urge guided discovery could be just over the horizon of my mind…now that’s exciting.
So I’ve cleared the driveway 2, 3, 4 times today…but I keep going back to my nerd quest of information and lessons. And snow it goes.
