home sick; feeling guilty anyway

Complete with an ax in the server for the old one.’s a cake.

One of the students I'm taking to Los Angeles next month just emailed me with homework - HE GAVE ME HOMEWORK and set it for next Tuesday

I LOVE WHEN THE TABLES ACTUALLY TURN! *does happy dance* Some people call it co-learning. Whatever name you give it, this is real learning- when you learn to learn, teach, assess, appraise, reflect, ask, do, give, and share - all as part of a whole.

...time to get working on my homework! 👩‍🎓
