As far as I know

it is still part of the curriculum, and when I was teaching a couple of years ago I taught my second graders about coins and how to count change. However, I had gotten to the point of making it a...

A group of kids pulled a similar stunt

here. I believe the kids are ALL facing charges and expulsion from school. Most were seniors. Such a stupid thing to do! Kids don't seem to have the ability to think ahead and think about the...

School PTA

of the school at which I taught last. Now retired, but still spending money on Amazon, just for different things!

I walk in the street on the occasions when light levels are low--dusk, rain storm, etc. The street is much more even, and walking against traffic on the left side of the road I can easily get out of...

Like Tennessee, Florida

is requiring all books to be approved before they can be used. The law apparently states (though I haven't read it) that they must be reviewed by a certified media specialist. Sadly, there are some...

Oh for the good old days

when teachers were trusted to teach, and could decide on their own schedules.

Yep, they slip

I have more than one pair of glasses--I'm so blind I need a backup pair ready. My backup pair is a frame I love the look of, but they just aren't as comfortable. I had to wear them recently for...

Composition book

I bought a composition book for myself recently--spent a whole 50 cents on it! I will use it to write in. But I have satisfied my urge to buy school supplies by contributing to a few Amazon...

I used it the last year I taught

I had it by the door, and we just reviewed it as we were gathering to line up (we had a couple of students that took a little longer to organize themselves). I would just read it and we would...

Don't eat it often

Life is good. The repairman came early this morning and replace a capacitor, and we are back to cool air. Yay! Thanks for your kind words!

Thanks for your sympathies!

We are toughing it out and staying the night here. The AC guy will be here early tomorrow morning. I'm sure we will be able to manage until then.

Believe it or not, I grew up in a home here in...

Why do things always fall apart on weekends?

Brand new (okay, two years old) AC decided to quit working yesterday afternoon. I'm in Florida. It is currently 88 degrees inside the house. I expect it will pass 90 as the day goes on. Thinking...

A constant frustration

My husband and I both have taught private music lessons over the years. (We met in college in the music department.) It seemed to work best for me to charge for all the lessons in the month due the...

This sounds interesting

This is a project that my husband has been delaying on and that I would like to have finished so that we can clear out some space in our cluttered home.

He wants more details! Make and model...

Probably the female staff had a lot to do with this. I've always worked at schools, and they have always had showers. As the years have gone on, they have become more limited in scope, seldom...

No checklist, but

I would focus first on things I know are specific to my classroom and students. Room decor and layout, how centers or materials will be organized, and things for keeping myself organized like filing...

We have a Ninja Foodie

(I think that is how it is spelled). It flips up when not in use to save counter space, which is really helpful in our tiny kitchen. I don't personally use it much because my husband is the cook in...

I don't drink

Never have, once I found out that I am allergic to beer and wine. I'm an old lady now, but did get questioned about it pretty regularly as a younger person. But I'm a bit of a smarta$#, and would...

a combination of genetics and anemia?

I went gray in my thirties, while the father I resembled still had dark hair. Life isn't fair! My sisters, both blondes, took after my mom in hair color, and didn't gray until much later.

Thanks for answering!

This sounds like so much fun! I'm thinking about being a copy cat. Hope you don't mind?
