smaller, but maybe useful

At Staples you can get an 11 x 17 color copy for $1.30. I make things in Word, setting the page size to 11 x 17, save as pdf, then upload to Staples.

The text is short, but the message profound.

Being at the same school for so many years, I honestly have never considered hour many actual hours I put in.

This year I'm moving to a new school. With school opening in a month, there is still...

Not mature enough?

During his senior year at Dartmouth, Ted Geisel was put on probation for breaking the laws of prohibition. He was no longer allowed to be the editor for the college's humor magazine. This led to his...

When I think back more than 10 years ago, I cringe at an extreme, but effective punishment I used with a class that was miserable for a sub.

I took the clock off the wall, along with anything cute...

I purchased several $5.99 stools from Ikea and the kids LOVED them. Three of my girls helped assemble them and so they were given the option to use them instead of a chair and they did! Most of my...

not around these parts

Funny, we are on our 5th principal in 10 years and I don't think anyone has given welcome gifts.

If you feel the need to do something tangible so that they feel welcome, consider doing it...

Dance break

5 minutes of dancing will do wonders for YOU and gives the kids a Brain Break as well. (Fresh Beat Band has great kid-friendly songs.) Do the macarena to the months of the year; jumping jacks while...

When my self-control is waning and KNOW that the next thing to come up will end up being the straw that broke the camel's back, I like to use email. It goes a little something like this-

then there are the parents

So my less mathematically inclined students are in the same boat, but what irks me even more is the unwillingness to remediate at HOME. When little Johnny comes in behind, it's really unlikely that...

needs vs. wants

Take your P's advice. I took two maternity leaves. One was in March and I did not return until the following school year. Leave two weeks of the best plans you've ever made and an outline for the...

Another Thought

another revolving door

I honestly can't keep track off the top of my head. I've lost either 6 or 7 since day 1, and that's not counting all the students who started the year on my list, but never showed. It is so...

I love...
