Wimba Week #3

After viewing the archive of this Wimba session, I really felt as if I was in a discussion based classroom setting. It was great to get the prompts to input what certain parts of the book meant most to my classmates or what they got out of the reading. It seemed a big portion of people really could relate to the Rule Number 6. It seems as teachers are lives become more and more hectic with the push for test scores and budget cuts. Yes, its important to do our job and teach these children, but there is a time to cut loose and relax a little bit. In today's society, we are constantly on the go having to do something. Sometimes we need to take a step back, relax a bit, and just get away from it. Stop being so serious. I find this hard because it seems I am always playing catchup at school and never ahead of the game. I just recently purchased a PS3. I think this has become my little bit of not being so serious. I try to find a little time during the week to play, just to get my mind off of things. I hope I can continue this mindset throughout the rest of the year and realize that maybe this mindset will make the day go better and keep my attitude in check.
