Like it

I enjoy the extra light in the evening; during the winter months, I feel like I want to go to bed by 8:30 because it's been dark for hours. I definitely feel a bit more energetic when it's lighter...

circle them

Circle all of the words that you believe they should know on their writing assignments and hand the paper back to them. Tell them that you'll grade it after they fix those words. If it's allowed at...

quick medical question

I never used styptic pencils growing up, but my husband's family did. He's telling one of my kids to use it on a blister on her lip. Is this safe?! I'd rather not poison her..... I did some quick...

OK, the harness typo had me going, too. I was getting all ready to read the details to DH about how he could get something to carry his manhood around, similar to a bra. Now I'm gonna' have to start...

naked parapro

On the news tonight, there was a story about a parapro who had a naked photo of herself on her cell phone. She left the phone unattended at school and someone looked through it, found the photo, and...

school testing

Every school district I've ever heard of does its own testing, no matter what outside testing has already been done. Reasoning for this includes the fact that some outside testers could be...

It seems to me that it doesn't matter which one you choose; you'll be regretting either choice by this time tomorrow! I sincerely hope you're not planning a get-together with friends, as it's always...

addressing academics

When dealing with more than one grade level, I start by identifying the skills that they all need, and then differentiate from there. For example, in reading, you might want to address character,...

I second (or is it third?) the vinegar suggestion. Two of my daughters had them about five years ago, and the vinegar worked the best. It's not as nasty as mayo, either. We poured it on their heads...

more Hugh

I love to watch 'about a boy.' It's another Hugh movie; he's my absolute fav, too (and my DH is also aware, lol). He looks so hot in the scene at the talent show. The final scene is holiday time, so...

That's been true in NJ for at least a few years (2004? I don't quite remember). I found that if you've taught the subject for a few years, then the Praxis tests aren't actually that difficult. Of...

so funny

I started laughing the minute I saw the name of the 'anonymous' poster; my teen son had to ask me what was so funny. As a fellow cheater, I knew exactly what we were talking about from the start! I...

I've used Ebay off and on for years, but I have to know what I'm looking for before I go there (and some people are hard to figure out, like in-laws). I should go poke around again, though. Same for...

It was $2.17 this evening for regular unleaded. I'm in NJ, so that's full-service, of course. I just learned to pump gas about 18 months ago, even though I'd been driving for over 20 years at that...

strangely accurate

OK, so I can't disagree with what this 'test' said about me- how funny! And I really can't even draw!

I don't know that she actually wants a *specialized* curriculum from you, but perhaps just the regular grade-level curriculum. When I teach resource, I always go to the regular ed. teachers to get a...

need a multivitamin recommendation

I've been feeling run-down lately and in need of energy, and I've gained a few pounds that I can't seem to lose. I'm also much more absent-minded than usual (I've done some very silly things because...

I totally understand where you're coming from! It's really inappropriate for her to come over without even asking and then to clean- it really is an invasion of privacy. I know that some mornings I...
