A four-hour nap later…
I’m sort of feeling human. The last Valentine’s Day gift I got from my kiddos was a cold. Good thing I have four days off to get myself closer to being well.
It’s been all school this week, between February holiday madness squeezed into one week and the school tossing in a Walk-a-thon on Friday, just because. While I’d love to have the entire week off next week, I’m going to the three days of workshop sessions.
So I got the email with the schedule and I’m reading it, and lo and behold my eyes bug out. There, in black-and-white pixels, is my name.
As a presenter: technology use in the classroom.
So my jaw is hanging open and I’m wondering who or what managed to get my name pasted there. But I shut the computer down and run off to my committee meeting after school, and run into the person in charge of the presentation.
I sidle up to her.
Me: Hey, I saw my name on the list of presenters for the tech thing on Friday?
Her, with a surprised face, which clears suddenly: I didn’t ask you, did I?!
Me: Um… no. You didn’t.
Me: *not laughing*
Her: I put names on the list; I didn’t think they’d publish them!
Her: Two minutes, talking about how you’re using Ed Caliber for those video clips, that’s all. Two minutes.
Me, still stunned by the entire thing: Oh. Okay. I can probably do two minutes.
There were two other names on that list beside mine. I wonder if they know they’re doing a two-minute presentation on Friday…..
