Just started today and already two hours in. Really needed a can‘t-put-down kind of mystery and this is the right level of attention I can give at this point in the semester. I‘m drowning in grading! #teachersoflitsy #professorsoflitsy

First snow day of the school year! We have about an inch and it‘s still coming down! I‘m going to watch Jeopardy with my daughter, read, and catch up on some grading! #teachersofLitsy

TheRiehlDeal Enjoy your snow day! We got a few inches up here in Central New York. Just a normal day for us. 3d

First time ever working with the #enneagram. We are spending our next staff retreat day focused on it and I was reading this in preparation. Turns out I am a pretty obvious number 9 and I believe I have an 8 wing. #teachersoflitsy

When you‘re teaching a diary/journal unit for English literature and decide to focus on the Holocaust.

Every lesson I read a chapter and students are composing a diary from the perspective of Bruno with his thoughts and feelings about everything he is experiencing.

At the end, students will present this as an accompaniment to this text to know more about Bruno 😍

This week‘s silent reading book with my classes is about a freshman football player who suffers a severe concussion at practice before the season starts and everything that goes on around this event. It is told in text messages, doctor‘s notes, one sided conversations at his bedside, etc.
