I wonder if Punxsutawney Phil had anything to do with student behavior today. Some were loud and obnoxious, others were catatonic. I thought a student or two had gone deaf or perhaps no longer spoke English. Talking with colleagues after school, it seems their students were in the same state as mine. Let's just hope today isn't like the movie "Groundhog Day" because I can't take too many more days like today.
I'm off to my second job at the Public Library, hoping the patrons there have not been touched by whatever got my students.
Happy birthday to my friend Susanna whom I used to work with at the library. It's a great place for many reasons.
