GEI Party

GEI Party 1, originally uploaded by Blog-Sothoth.

On Friday we hosted a gathering for my fellow Balto City teaching interns. These are some of the poor saps who've run the gamut woth me this fall, teaching half-time and taking a shit-load of graduate ed classes during the evenings, afternoons, and weekends.

We drank a lot, ate a lot, and kvetched. After one more week we get a nice long holiday break. Then, it's back to the grind with intense Winterim courses in January. In March we take over duties from our teacher mentors in the City while finishing up our certification and Masters' of Ed.

These folks are the best thing about the GEI program. Many of them are out-of-staters who wanted to help Baltimore City kids. There are North Carolinians, Michiganers, and West Virginians cutting their teeth in East and West Baltimore middle schools. God bless 'em.

That exposed brick wall is nice!

On the recommendation of John Waters, I'm going to cover it in fake brick linoleum.

Yes, I believe John Waters would recommend formstone.

It definitely needs something! Maybe your "artist" friend can help!
