--A guy hit a school bus head on and was pronounced dead at the scene. Eight kids on the bus and driver were okay. I knew the guy, his wife and his parents. Great people. Kelly was always so good natured and funny. Never knew a stranger. He was only 47.
--Field Day today. They’re expecting 1500 FFA kids plus some adults. I’m going to be outside all day.
--Iowa’s company had a fire at the plant yesterday where they grind the miscanthus. All the safety measures kicked in and did what they were supposed to do. No one was hurt but it did do significant damage to the equipment/mill. Going to be down about 3 months. They’re going to have to outsourced the grinding in the meantime which means Iowa is probably going to have to do a little trucking.
--My observation went well. My supervisor was so complimentary. Told me I had good classroom management skills and was very positive with the kids and attentive to validate all of their answers.
She liked the popcorn activity. While the popcorn was heating up and getting ready to pop I had the kids pretend they were popcorn kernels and hop. As the popcorn started to pop we would jump higher and higher. Kids had fun and I met the physical activity objective of the lesson.
--I really have a good job. So lucky.
