The Start of a New Year

I am back from a wonderful week of camping with my family. The weather forecasters may have lied (ok, they didn’t lie, they just have no idea how to predict weather patterns farther the 4 hours ahead of time), but we still had fun. I will get pictures up in the next few days… I haven’t even downloaded them yet!

Today marked my first day back to school in a while! Yay! I just started the ARC program over at Seattle Pacific University (a few minute drive from my house). It is an intensive year long (plus a summer) program that ends in certification and a masters of arts in teaching. I will be interning at a middle school in the Bellevue school district for the year and I am really looking forward to working with their 8th grade physics curriculum!

Since I will be extremely busy over the next year, my blogging will definitely be lighter… although I did just start a new blog (shocking I know): Matt @ SPU which will chronicle my year as well as provide a place for me to put all my school stuff in one place. If you visit, don’t be alarmed by the streaming of conscious / note like feel of the posts… that’s exactly what they are.

So here’s to a new school year! Wish me luck!

    Hi Matt,
    Got your message about the Marzano paper. No problem! Thought I’d check out your blog, too. The ARC year is a big year, but worth it. Remember to breathe, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. You’ve got my email address. Later.

    @ Kristin: you love to lay on the pressure, don’t you? ;)

    @ Carl: You would think it would be easy up here, yet they are wrong ALL the time!

    @ Jae: Oh I am sure I will need to work during the wedding… but I’ll be there anyway!

    @ Chad: Thanks for stopping by Chad! I am looking forward to the year and will make sure I take time to relax and enjoy it as well.

    @ Eun: Thanks Eun, I think it will be a pretty exciting year and I am pretty stoked to get into the physics classes!
