I don't.

I looked at your curbsmart question, and then looked up curbsmart and thought it was a pretty cool idea. We've never used anything like that at our school. We just stand in the parking lot or for...

Singapore Math

has a lot of great ideas for teaching the why and how of math. But I'm guessing the books don't spell things out really well, and frankly, you really have to see it in action to really appreciate...

One or the other

It looks like you have eight tables and 30 chairs. You've got four facing forward (which means you've got six students with their backs to you.) and four parallel to the windows.

I would place...

I think

we all have different ideas on what a "perfectly beautiful" classroom is and what it looks like. And we all have different ideas on what an "over the top" classroom looks like. For some of us, the...

We have

three tables, two microwaves, two refrigerators, a sink, and a soda machine.

The copier, paper cutter, and diecut machine were in a separate location.

I want to be

"on my tushy." I'm not a kid. I don't have ADHD (although maybe a little ADD.) I don't want to play games. I don't want to get up and write on chart paper and then do a walk around the...

You can save

your powerpoint as a PDF, and then sell the PDF. I'm assuming you don't want your organizer to be editable.

I consider myself

a recovering "Type A." Although not as organized as your co-worker (I'm pretty last minute,) I used to like to make everything neat and attractive. I came up with complicated lesson plans where I...

I prefer the term "teacher." Even as I'm switching to be a media specialist, I am most likely to refer to myself as a teacher-librarian.

But of the two, I think "educator" is more exclusive. To...

I, too

sort of got the feeling that your own ambivalence about homeschooling may have colored your perceptions or affected how others perceive you. I'm in a similar situation, where my own daughter has...

Too bad

It's sad that they made you feel left out and overlooked. Think of it this way: even if you had the money, spending it on a cruise and airfare for 5 would get you so much less than many, many, many...

My car buying experiences

show me that the link above is totally what they will try to do. Maybe not with a four-square but it still works out the same. They try to get you to ignore the price of the car and try to get you...

I laminate

the nametags, then use clear packaging tape to tape them to the desk. That works all year for at least half my students. The ones who pick, I eventually pull them off the desk, trim around the...

Scrabble Letters

You could find a scrabble font, type up letters, and print on tan/light brown card stock.

After laminating, arrange them to spell different words or messages. You could even change them out over...

How about

ibuprophen or Tylenol
cough drops
individual flavored packs for water bottles
emergency sewing kit

This won't work for you, but when I lost my phone, we were using the APPLE find my phone app. At the same time, my husband was rolling out the trash. When the trash started beeping, he grabbed the...

Agree with the others

Remove the top, center it on the wall. I wouldn't paint it. Choose your favorite decorating ideas and go for it.

As for the left over top, you I wouldn't store it. That's how things accumulate. ...

My guess is

You'll have to pay $100's of dollars for a key. I know, I know. I've done it twice. (Always after losing the first one and before losing another one.) There might be a locksmith who can drive out...

Don't you love it when your child shows who they really are?

Plus, while disliking heights, he didn't have a melt-down, so that's impressive.

Our district

offers professional development hours throughout the year and in the summer. That takes care of most of my needs.

In the past, we had to take at least one 3 hour class per 5 years. Our union...

Then there was the 50ish woman

who always greeted me with "How ya doing, baby? (or sweetie, or darling, or honey) I'd rather be ignored.

P.S. At 58, I'm a little too old to be called "baby" by anyone, much less a total...

Do you have young children?

I have a rug under my dining room table. I think it looks warm and cozy. I always have, but the type of rug has varied.

When I had young children, I got cheap rugs, because, well, spills. Lots...

I've found that

my reading has changed over the years. I never thought I'd be a gadget kind of person, but it comes down to that.

I loved paper books. I was never without one. I had bookcases full of them,...

Siri vs. Google

My husband (Siri) and my daughters (Google) did a competition the other day, asking the same questions. Google wins hands down for funniest and most helpful, we all agreed.

Those are all good ideas

and I'm going to file them away in my back brain. My new library position is going to be a heck of a lot of work and a big learning curve. I also want to make a valance for above the windows, so...
