When you find one great blog in the morning and another before tucking in, it doesn’t really matter what happened between breakfast and dinner, does it? Mr. C and I are just too close together on the learning curve — both a few years in, both having taught urban high school students — for me to ignore him. In a blogosphere full of English and History teachers blogging it’s great to find a few right-brain types reflecting and self-analyzing.
I killed a few months of his archives in just a few spins of the second hand, every post eliciting either an Oh-I-Went-Through-That or an Oh-I’m-Going-Through-That response. His continuum to burnout is just some heartbreakingly true stuff. Watch out for this guy.
