Today's Gratitude Item: Getting a fair amount done today. It helped that two of my most challenging students were out of class last period today which made for an easy end to a hectic week.

Today's Gratitude Item: My appraisal at work went well. The meeting was encouraging and productive and it was nice to have a chance to show someone in senior management what we actually do in Computer Science :)

Again! For some reason I often end up with ocean scenes which is strange given that I don't particularly like 'the water'.

This one was a bit of a disappointment. Not quite bad enough to bin but it was a close call.

Today's Gratitude Item: Most of my 7th grade students really enjoyed the 'Run Length Encoding' exercise that we did today. This involved them figuring out a mystery image. One funny thing was the fact that a number of them figured out what the image was and then improved on it before submitting their answers!

Today's Gratitude Item: Getting the comments for my junior students' reports ready for proof reading. Writing reports might be one of my least favourite things about being a teacher so it is great to have that task mostly out of the way.
