Hallelujah and Amen

They're DONE!!!!!!!

Okay...if you are asking, "What's done?!?" you are obviously guilty of not reading my blog enough. So, I won't tell you outright. But I will give you some hints. It involves several used-up red pens, lots of bad grammar, and many doses of Tylenol. Oh, and seven weeks of my life that I can never get back! But I am so happy they are done!

P.S. I know at this point, you may be worried about me and wonder, "What will she do with all her free time now? Will she be able to handle having weekends free of red ink?" Never fear, my dear blog readers. You see, now I have the opportunity to catch up on all that work I assigned but didn't get a chance to grade and enter every assignment for every student individually into our convenient online grading system. Oh, and final exams started today, so I get to grade hundreds of those, too. Oh, and then I can ease my pain by computing yearly grade averages for each student. And don't even get me started on the fun I plan to have packing up my classroom. So, don't worry! And did I mention that I get a whole week to do all of this? Piece of cake after the past seven weeks.

Glad you can get a break now! :) What grade do you teach by the way?

I'm soooo glad that you finished grading your research papers! I still think you should use the old "stair-step" method. You know, toss all the papers down the stairs and the ones that land nearest the top get the higher grades, those at the bottom....well, you get it! Grin.
Can't wait to see you all on Sun.!

Haha! I like gemma's advice with the stairs! Too funny! Good luck with the last week of school. I, too, can't wait for school to be finally done. Then I don't have to drive so darn much! Thank goodness, especially with these gas prices!
