Day 110- Bubbles with Duckie!
April 20, 110/365 (1206/1461)- Finished up the "regular" state-standardized testing this morning, so the "Queen of Testing" gave all of us that went above and beyond a rubber ducky with bubbles in it. She really is in charge of our guidance department, known as the ducks because they always look so calm on the surface but paddling like hell underneath.
Today marks two events that forever changed the lives of teachers, and the lives of us coastal dwellers on the Gulf of Mexico. It's the 12th anniversary of the Columbine shootings which certainly changed how schools handle bullying and security issues. It's also the first anniversary of the Deep Horizon/BP oil fiasco, which has forever changed the lives of those that depend on the Gulf for a living.
RIP+ to the 11 drillers just doing their job for BP that died on the rig and the 12 students & 1 teacher that died at the hands of two emotionally deranged students with weapons in school.
