For my 1st...

I made picture frames for all the grandparents and painted "I love my Grandmama" or "Granddaddy" on them. I then put a piece of paper in each that said "to be filled in October". For the second I...

65-67 lb. paper

You can also look for 65-67 lb. paper. The material warehouse in our district has "card stock" for 12.95 a ream, but 67lb. paper (basically the same thing!) for 3.95 - 4.95 a ream. FYI regular...

Mrs. G.~WOW

I am sorry. However, from reading your posts here and on other threads, it sounds like you are an open-minded and flexible teacher. Those traits will help you weather all the excitement of your...

Smaller sets...

While $200-250 would probably be a good price many teachers would be hesitant to pay that amount. You might consider breaking the books into smaller groups say 50 books for $25 so that it would be...

What makes a good principal?

I hear so many horror stories about poor administrators. What do you think makes a principal really good? What ideas or activities has your principal done that you really liked?

online degrees

I don't know anything about Walden. However, I did want to say that more and more "brick and mortar" universities are offering the online degrees. I am starting one this Fall at the Univeristy of...

If money were no object I would be a stay at home mom. I would love to have the time to be a June Cleaver. Okay, I know that it is not politically correct to say so but there it is. However, since...

an observation and a comment

Does anyone else think it's interesting that those of us who put in so much extra into our teaching get the harder cases whether they're discipline or academic?
