I'm loving having a normal job for the week and I totally love this school. The girls are great, fun and so high achieving! We just had an assembly and they had me cracking up... high school was so fun.
I'm teaching AP Environmental Studies and Biology. I love science but it's been a while since I worked with this material. Luckily, we're in the middle of the water unit in AP Enivro. Sciences. At Cal Poly, I took like 4 field trips to the estuaries, sand dunes and bays in the area so I remember a lot of that stuff. But BIO- it's been like 5 or 6 years. I'm supposed to teach them all about mitosis this week which shouldn't be too bad. Interphase, prophase, blah blah blah. The teacher gave me this youtube video to show the kids:
So I'm cramming to come up with info and questions for them right now. Hopefully it'll be okay! I always thought it would be wierd to go to an all girls school. Especially in high school, but being here has totally changed my mind. Ya, its harder to meet boys for them and listening to them talk about prom sounds depressing... prom is fun because everyone knows each other but they have to being random boys. On the flip side, they aren't distracted and don't have to worry about what they look like at school. I don't know if it's just this school, but the girls all get along so well. They really support each other- it's such a community. If my kid wanted to go here I would totally look into it.
