I LOVE that

Jackie, that is a BRILLIANT idea. I honestly never thought of that. I always hated the manipulatives because they were noisy, messy and distracting, no matter how many times you teach the routine.

I hate base ten blocks for regrouping

Our state will likely close schools for the entirety of the year. While it has been nice to have quiet time at home, I donít like this news.

I do not like lack of structure. I like routines,...

Icy cold coworker

A teacher I work with is so cold. I push into her classroom and she treats me more like an aide. If she feels that one of her students isn’t working or processing fast enough, she calls me out. She...

Rude intervention teacher

Our intervention teacher is, well, rude.
