February 24

We have a very interesting schedule at high school where I work.  We have some days with every period, others with longer periods and some missing periods and then a short day on Friday.  Memorizing this schedule takes a little doing.  The period vary from 45 to 82 miutes in length.

There are times when I welcome the long period and other times when I wish the day would be a short one.  Overall I see the value in it, but sometimes it is a little crazy.  There are times when I think the long periods encourage a lot of talking and visiting back and forth among the students and other times when I am glad the periods are longer, because you can accomplish a particular assignment that takes longer than normal.

I find this to be particularly true in Photoshop and Sociology.  We need extra time to accomplish certain goals and the longer periods are just great for accomplishing that.

From what I hear from the students, not many of them favor longer periods which is not a surprise to me.

I guess the best thing is to go with the flow and make it work for that particular day.  I am thankful that for the most part I am able to do that and things go well.  It is a blessing.

Father, thanks for your abiity to see the big picture and to remain focused on you.  Amen.
