About 4:30 this afternoon, I was setting up the science lab for tomorrow's adventure in chemistry, because we have Mass in the morning and therefore I don't have the prep hour I do all the other days.
We've been in the lab every day this week, using a modified version of this awesome Middle School Chemistry curriculum from the American Chemical Society. This is the most hands-on chemistry I've ever been able to teach. I have the space, I have the resources, I have the time, and I have the complete support of my administration.
So yeah, I was on campus pretty late, but it was with a smile on my face.
I love my job.
