A Truly Great Class – November 2, 2011

When Mrs. Tang went out on Maternity leave, I decided to take on the added responsibility of being the 8th grade Language Arts teacher for 3 months. I must admit that, as the date of my return to the classroom got closer, I felt a growing sense of apprehension. Would I still have the skills? Would the kids respond positively to me? Would I be able to maintain the level of preparation and attention to detail that Mrs. Tang is known for? Would I be able to balance my responsibilities as Principal, Teacher and Father?
