I'm in Alaska, and just three weeks ago I stood in front of my very own classroom for the first time. I stood at the front of the room and stared at the unfamiliar faces of my brand-new students. It was mildly terrifying, but I had planned out a great getting-to-know-you survey and a brief lesson to introduce myself. My plan was to run the same lesson with each class period because hey, it's the first day of school, and I need to learn who these wonderful young people are.
By second period, I saw the error of my ways.
