Stand Up and Teach

...........sigh of relief. I am back in a real classroom this year. Hal-le-lu-jah. You have no idea how much of a relief it is to teach in a classroom instead of a teeny tiny ex-teacher's lounge. The kids all congratulate me. My colleagues congratulate me. I'm happy.



One of the things I am trying out this year is a standing desk. I had read where sitting all day is unhealthy for you in so many ways. So my "desk" is a discarded dictionary stand from our library. I originally grabbed it because it would hold oversized paper.

 Standing all last week, I could actually tell a difference in my exhaustion level. It was less! Probably the reason why was that I stood on this exercise thingy....core balance trainer...
 and it gave my feet and legs great cushioning. I'll let you know how much I like this idea after I've been using it for a while.
