Tomorrow I have my first real instructing session for Mad Science...and I'm gonna have these kids for four weeks, so if I stink, I still have to face them next Thursday...
It turns out they're anywhere from Kindergarden to 6th grade, so I'm gonna have quite the mixed bag of education levels to try to cater to...I'm not gonna lie to you, Marge, I'm more than a little nervous about this. I've gone over the material again once tonight, I'll likely type up my notes soon, and then review everything again tomorrow before I head off to the after school program. These kids *wanted* to be there (or at least their parents did) so I've got to make sure I keep them interested.

I need an antacid tablet. And/or a good stiff drink.

If I make it through tomorrow without any major disasters, I've got a 50ml bottle of Glenfiddich 18 year old scotch with my name on it.

Oh, and if anyone's curious, the unit tomorrow is on bugs. There's some really cool interactive stuff with the lesson that I'm actually looking forward to.
