Busy Day


This morning, I was re-certified as a CPR/First Aid first responder. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a good CPR class. Everything was very clear and easy to understand with plenty of time for practice. We even got to practice the Heimlich maneuver. I have been told how to do this in every class I’ve taken, but it was really valuable to actually get a chance to try it on a dummy. My grandmother saved my life by performing the Heimlich maneuver on me when I was 11. We also learned how to use a defibrillator and epipen, neither of which I knew. I think it was the best CPR/First Aid class I’ve ever taken.

This afternoon, those of us who were interested were treated to a tour of the new school building, which is currently under construction. I got to see my classroom in its current unfinished state, and it will be big.

So today was the last day! Post-planning is over, and I’m done. In two weeks I’m going to a workshop with the biology teacher and one of the English teachers. I have some reading I’ll need to do for that class. Matter of fact, I have some summer reading to do, as I think (at least I was led to believe) I’d be teaching seniors next year, and I’ve not read any of their summer reading selections before.

I am going to relax a little bit, but I have a lot of planning I want to do this summer.

  1. I didn't know you knew cpr. I keep meaning to take a class. And I remember that time you choked. It was scary.

  2. One of my friends and fellow teachers, Becky, found your English website. SHe was just SO excited. She said though that she had to do a double take since you sound so much like me. I took that as a compliment and a very nice one! 🙂

    Enjoy seniors!

  3. Well, like you say, we're twins, aren't we?  It just occurred to me that folks who don't read here much, but visit from my husband's blog must be confused as to what's going on with two Dana's, assuming they didn't think first that I was making comments to myself!  Let's keep 'em guessing.  It's fun.
