Under the cover of a morning fog, I made it into Mekoryuk today. I returned by snow machine over a melting tundra snow to find a school running fine with out me. State testing in progress, students working, behaving and doing what they were supposed to. It was good to see.
I guess I am not as important as I thought I was (which wasn't much at all).
I also guess I complain too much on this blog according to one reader (last Tuesday's post comments). For every twenty positive comments I get, I also get one negative one, both times the negative comments didn't really seem to show basic comprehension of the post itself and this leads me to believe that this person/persons save up their frustrations with the blog/me and then just take it out on one blog post to blow off steam, If my blog is causing frustration then I would recommend making more constructive criticism or possibly read something else.
I have been pretty negative lately I guess (for living in an island in the Bering Sea I'm doing pretty good though). I guess I can try to stop that. I'm not perfect. I am putting myself out here, so I'm always confused when people criticize me, anonymously. This isn't a group email or a scam, this is a blog, and people read if they want to.
Well, I'm going to continue proctoring my State tests in a silent room with three hardworking native students trying their best to rise to America's anglo saxon western culture-centric standards of education...(oops complained again, although it feels more like commentary and actually rather satisfying)
I guess if anyone else is tired of my negative complaining diatribes they should probably comment now, anonymously if you must, because now I'm ready to open a discussion on how much of a hypocrite I already know I am. Fire away. Or back me up if you feel like I'm doing a good job, I don't know, just let me know.
