Yesterday, I took the bus and train back up to Albuquerque, then drove over to the Uptown area to complete some AVID training for the Albuquerque Public Schools.  I don’t know my APS schedule yet, but I should in the next few days.

After training, I did a little grocery shopping and posted a few jobs on JobSeeker.

In the evening, we drove to Los Alamos and watched a presentation on fractals.  They had all sorts of neat patterns, hosted in the planetarium.  The science museum and the planetarium were quite neat.   They had a few desert reptiles, insects, and so on in aquariums, as well as all sorts of local information about the wildlife in the southwest.

Thank you for reading my post.

Yesterday was a busy day.  I started out the day by attending the remaining 8 hours of AVID training.  I hung out with the teachers during our breaks and had a good time overall.  I think there’s a few things I can bring back to the classroom.

After that, I hung out with a few folks at a Wendy’s for a while after the training.

I came home soon after and went to bed.  I had several cats to keep me company.

Other than that, it was an uneventful day.

Thank you for reading my post.  I’ll post a monthly summary soon.

Yesterday, I started the day by teaching three sections of algebra at Magdalena. We covered more with radicals, exponents and imaginary numbers.  I think it went well.

After that, I went back to NMT to work on a few things in the Unit Operations lab. I built a box to cover the relay that was exposed, so that is now safer.  I also started working on a broken pump, and I’m hoping that replacing the gasket will be enough.

In the evening, I rode up to Albuquerque with one of the other tutors, as we had a training session to attend. It was a statewide AVID event, so we ad a good time.

I also walked three miles to pick up my truck, as it was a nice night.
