colorado: day 10 (fri 7/18)

This was a good day. Hard to get up in the morning, again, but the day went rather quickly. The students had their ethics class with a teacher from the BA program (my roommate) in the morning, so we had more time (and leisurely time) to grade last night's homework. I then spent most of the time until the noontime meeting talking with one of the other skills specialists and it was really nice.

The rest of the day was uneventful - which is good. We had a very productive lab with the students. We accomplished a lot and they were participatory and there was great discussion and opportunity for them to practice.

Then tonight some teachers from both programs and our lead instructor and a couple other staff members all went out for dinner. It was nice to get together outside of the work environment, chat, eat and just hang out. I had considered not going because I was tired and was feeling like I might need a little time alone ... but I'm glad I decided to go with the group.

Right now I need to get to bed so that I can get up early to meet the others who are going to the mountains to see animals and have a view from on high.
