Where has this year gone? Could it really be possible that we only have a month of school left until summer break? As I reflect on the highs and lows of this school year at J. H. House, one of the highs definitely has been my experience with blogging. The student comments have meant so much to me. At times they have made me smile! For instance, Mike said,
"I felt like I was not important enough to even have an adult conversation with the SACS commitee. I am so mad that just becuase I am a little kid I have a little mind becuase I don't. P.S I am very intellegent."
His comment was in reference to the fact that the SACS evaluation committee had asked to meet with students at our school and then ran out of time before they were able to talk to the students. I had to smile at Mike's comment because he is intelligent and I would love to have heard what he planned to tell the committee.
I'll have to admit time constraints have been a problem for me. Other things seem to always come up that are "in my face" and get my immediate attention. However, the interaction with students on the weblog has kept me going. I really do value their opinions. That means I have to find the time somehow to continue in my "quest". Next year, I would like to continue with chapter 2 of the Principal's Quest. Perhaps I can somehow tie current events into character education somehow. My thoughts are still swirling around somewhat. I visualize being able to respond to segments of the CNN news by identifying the positive character traits exhibited by someone in the news or perhaps their lack thereof. Let me know what you think.
