I’ve been trying to catch a good video of a pep rally wave so kids can calculate the wave speed and I lucked out today.
Homecoming is tonight and while I’m not excited at all about the heavily gendered traditions around homecoming King and Queen or the hyper-masculine football contest, I was excited about my chosen duty station at our homecoming festivities held during the day today: the cotton candy machine, which has the reputation of being the worst duty station a teacher can get. Little do they know. My logic: all the other stations involve discipline — keep the kids from leaving early, keep order at the cornhole game, maintain safety on the bouncy castle — whereas the cotton candy machine’s entire purpose is to deliver smiles to kids.
