I can't wait to get started. I'll be taking your stack of summer assignments to my local Barnes and Noble cafe next week -- grading is made much easier over Starbucks coffee and a sugar cookie! :) I look forward to reading your personal essays, which are due on the first day of school.
I'm very excited about the first project that we'll be working on. :) It's inspired by Into the Wild, and students tend to really get into it!
Enjoy your remaining days of summer!
