Summer Hiatus, Part I
2016 was the last year of Louisville's ten-year contract with Educational Testing Service to host the US History Advanced Placement test grading, an event I've taken part in since 2008. Tampa, a city I've never visited, will do the honors for the next ten years. So this is where I'll be June 2-9.
I don't know how much of this I'll get to see during my stay in the "Lightning Capital of the World" (that doesn't sound very promising...) but I'm sure I'll enjoy a little of the "longest sidewalk in the world" as I take urban hikes while not grading, I hope I get a chance to check out the beaches too, and visit the aquarium if it isn't too far from the convention center where I'll be working. The Tampa Yankees minor league team is in town so I'll do my best to get to a game. Oh, and I'll grade as many essays as I can when not seeing the sights and having fun.
Anyway, I won't be posting again until June 10. Please enjoy the archives, and see you when I get back!
