Today is shaping up to be an extremely long day at work, in part because I will be away from school the next two days at a conference and training.
Got in this morning at 6:45am, since I had so much to do. And I’m writing this from school at 8:30pm. So apologies in advance that this is not an awesome post.
I created a “To Do” list to help me get through everything. Here’s what my day was like today:
- Write/send STEM Competition letter to potential engineer judges
- Write/send STEM Competition email to our entire school
- Create STEM judge sign-up sheet
