AM: 6.5 miles up Grandeur Peak. I return to school tomorrow for year 27 of teaching and the climb up Grandeur was a great way to end the summer. After last night's rain it was cool and clear this morning - probably high 50s in the canyon at the start.

We have an entire week without students before the first day for kids a week from tomorrow. This is simultaneously too much time and not enough time. Too much because at this point in my career I don't need a week to be ready for the return of students and not enough because the school and the district siphons away most of the time with meetings and professional development of dubious value. The worst is a relatively new thing we have called "district day" where we have to spend a day at another school taking classes that have no impact on your classroom and they insist that we all wear the same matching t-shirts that will be handed out to us at school on Monday. The t-shirts will be the cheapest possible and very uncomfortable and we will all feel like dorks wearing them but making us do so must seem important to administrator types. I will wear the stupid t-shirt one time and then either throw it away or use it for a rag.

Jobs I held after the age of 22 but before I began my teaching career at 31.

Soldier, waiter, produce clerk, field technician for two environmental engineering/consulting firms.
