My field training site for July is out in Canarsie, by where they filmed Half Nelson, so it should be a really interesting summer school to observe.
Some other things to note:
We used some videos from this site in class last week and some of them are very interesting.
2,200 children are victims of commercial sexual exploitation every year in New York City.
In non teacher news, I am sick, and am dealing with another aspect of moving- finding a doctor/dealing with insurance/not having my mom to make me chicken soup (that's been a fact for 4 years but I think it continues to be troubling forever).
Yesterday I saw Get Smart which was funny. Not hilarious, but about what I expected. And Anne Hathaway did a really good job, I hate to admit. Some guy in front of me in the theater said she was perfect. I wouldn't go that far, but his judgement was questionable as he actually answered a cell phone call during the movie.
