Oh what do you do in the summer time?

Teachers usually play all summer. Not me. It was classes classes and classes. Some classes I had to take like special education and literary strategies. Some classes I took for fun like Swiss literature and conducting. Then being the over achiever I am I cut my summer even shorter and organized a retreat for my students at the U for the last 3 days. and when I say 3 days I don't mean 9 to 5. Oh no. Much more time than that. I just really wanted to start the year right. I wanted them to bond and become friends, I wanted them to work hard and have fun to. I wanted them to work with brilliant Dr. Allred. And after hours and hours and hours I think it worked.
Me in action.


Teachers getting thanked.

Sure, classes and doing good by your students is nice, but I've been partying hard core all summer long and don't regret it at all!
