There’s No Place Like Home

January11

I wish I had one.  Technically, I guess I do.  There is a classroom in which my desk, chair, and a few of my belongings live, but I’m hardly ever there, and I won’t be there next year.  I pack and move classrooms every. single. year. In my district, all special education students are taught in the […]

#EDUBLOGSCLUB The Road Back

January4

I have been gone from blogging for far too long.  Unmotivated, busy, stressed, distracted, knitting, good books, and a host of other things are to be blamed.  In fact, I think I only posted twice last year. My Tweeting dropped off, my attendance in Twitter Chats is non-existent, and I haven’t done a thing with […]

You Want Me to Relax?

July13

I can not relax this summer!!!  What is it?!  I just will not settle down.  I had to force myself to read and knit last night and that wasn’t until 8 p.m. and didn’t last long at all. I always save “things to do” during the school year that I need to conquer in the summer […]

VoiceThread

January21

In recent years I’ve come across presentations and on-line discussions using a little-known (to me, anyway) application called VoiceThread. VoiceThread is an interactive collaboration and sharing tool that enables users to add images, documents, and videos, and to which other users can add voice, text, audio file, or video comments. You can post your VoiceThread on your website […]

I am Very Popular

September8

I have a date every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights.  Actually, I have two dates on Tuesday nights.  I am THAT awesome.  I don’t even know the real names of many of the people…only their screen names.  And there’s many of them.  Sounds sketchy, right?  A little freaky?  Actually, it’s all on the up and […]

Time Keeps on Slipping, Slipping, Slipping…

September4

Teachers work all hours of the day, every day.  It’s just something we do.  It’s something we’re used to.  We don’t even think about it anymore.  Let me ask you this: Why?  Why are we used to this?  Also, when did this become the norm, and how did we miss this conversion? My co-teacher and […]

Back To School!

August5

I hate to drop the “B-phrase” on you guys, but there’s no denying it…it’s that time.  Sigh.  We are headed back to a new year.  This is our new beginning.  Time to let last year go, and embrace the challenges (both good and bad) of the new year. Maybe this is your first year.  Could […]

Misplaced My Motivation

July16

Here I sit, finally prepping for the start of the new school year.  After this past year, and with new developments, and a smidge of self-pity, I already want the year to start so it can be over so next summer can arrive. I’ve done nothing school-related for the last month because I needed a break. […]

That Kid

June3

Any teacher with a number of years under his/her belt has had That Kid.  When you have That Kid, you look like this, A LOT:   I have That Kid this year. It’s been a rough year with him.  I swore he was going to be the end of my career, either because I was going […]

Teacher Appreciation Week

May11

Teacher appreciation week isn’t about the gifts, kind words, or treats. It’s about the boy who wrote an essay and stated that I’m one of the best teachers in the world, who’s helping him to be a handsome man, and that if it weren’t for me (and his homeroom teacher) he wouldn’t be writing that […]
