Just logged my highway miles for April. At 1777.5 miles this month, it wasn’t the highest total of the year, but pretty darn close. Spring time in Alabama is worth every waking minute. The yellowish pollen-dusted greens gave way to deep emerald as the month progressed and (excepting those Tornados — post coming soon) the sky was a deep, clear, blue.
When I wasn’t behind the wheel of Big Red, I was working with science students from Muscle Shoals, to Hartselle, to Hokes Bluff, to Dothan. Everywhere I went, students were engaged, excited about learning, and impressing me with what they knew and what they could do.
AP exams start Monday. Many of “my” AP Chemistry and AP Environmental Science Students will be taking the dreaded “Form B” on the alternate test dates (May 18-19), but other than that, we are all systems GO.
The tornados and subsequent power outages in Huntsville have scuttled our Last Saturday Study Session at UA-H, but we’re already improvising and have plans to get it done next week and next weekend. In the words of a brilliant man, “Yes, we can.”
