I spent the other day on the cliffs of La Jolla sketching and painting with a friend. It was an amazing day at the ocean. And then ...
I spent this last week proctoring the CA STAR test for a group of 8th graders. Basically that means I read them the instructions and then let them do the work. My job was to make sure no one cheated and no part of the test (including scratch paper) left the testing room.
Funny - I can't even remember taking the STAR test when I was in school. I just remember running to get in line with the schoolmarm rang the bell, then get in trouble for running. Were there such tests in the olden days.
I love what I do for my job and I love what I do on my own time. Life is good!
