Novel study

I used to see my kids twice a week for 45 minutes. Once a week we'd do a novel study and the other time we'd work on writing. The novel study was great. You can either teach them how to do lit...

Waze

I've found it to be pretty reliable and always has very up-to-the-minute traffic data. Having said that, it sometimes takes me some crazy ways to get places. I've found it's helpful when I at least...

It's not just about balancing budgets

I live in a mid-sized city that has long been a resettlement point for a major international refugee organization. For each of the (almost) 20 years I've been working here, we would have an influx of...

Nope.

This year will be my 19th and I still love it. A few years ago I left a school I'd been at for more than a decade because the principal was a jerk and landed in the best possible situation. I work...

You can do a 10k and it doesn't have to be excruciating. I started running about a year and a half ago. It took me awhile (a long while - and I don't always run, I do combo run/walks) to get there,...

Our school uses it

I am a specialist, not a classroom teacher, but I am involved in morning meetings all the same. We love it. We have a school-wide morning meeting once a month, which is also a lot of fun.

1. I'll be on my way to South Africa.
2. I don't think so, but I could be surprised.
3. Once in a blue moon.
4. To pack for South Africa.

Asking for the letter isn't going to be the problem. The letter itself is likely to be the problem. As someone who has hosted student teachers in the past, I have some experience in writing those...

Heathrow Express

I think it should be fine, but I would definitely use the Heathrow Express. It's much faster. I just bought mine for a thing this summer and I want to say it cost me about $45 roundtrip. You get on...

My experience in London

I don't know that they're the same company, but I visited London last year and did not buy the London Pass. The biggest thing that made me glad I hadn't purchased it was the fact that you had to wait...

Definitely check the laws in your state. This happened when you were a minor. I can't imagine that would show up (or need to be disclosed) on applications, but call the DOE and ask.

London

I love to travel on my own. I'll probably go back this year and may add in another city or two.

Fitbit

I loved my Alta HR. It counts your steps, but also your heart rate. If you're interested in losing weight, that is important as it helps it more easily calculate the calories you've burned that day....

A reason to love Twitter

I've done this too. I'm in the middle of reading a book that is full of great, but definitely different, ideas on how to do things. I've reached out to the author more than once on Twitter and he's...

Bruschetta

This is by far my favorite. It's really rich, but super delicious.

Wrist

I've had both. I prefer the wrist one because it also tracks my heart rate, which then lets it automatically track exercise. I also washed my clip one more than once because I forgot it was in a...

Fitbit

I got a Fitbit in late July. Using that to keep track of my steps (I started with a goal of about 7.5k/day and am now at 12k/day) and to track my food, I've lost almost 50 pounds.
