Unless there were students in the room or hallway at the time (it sounds like there weren’t any), I don’t see the problem. We’re human, and we say indiscreet things at times, particularly when we’re...

We had the same problem b/c it would not stop raining. I bought some Rescue Disposable Fly Traps and hung up one at the edge of our patio. You fill the bag with water, and it has a stinky...

Hah! As I read the last couple of sentences of the email’s first paragraph, in my mind I said almost the exact same things that were in your editorial comment. It gave me a good laugh when I then...

Absolutely you are correct to care about your weight, though we’re being indoctrinated to believe that sort of thinking is fat shaming. Not only is that ridiculous, it is a very dangerous, slippery...

I heard about them on PT, otherwise I would never have found them. I was totally skeptical that anyone could fit a bra online, but it works. It did take me a second try for them to get it right, but...

Having spent half my career in Sped and the other half in Gen Ed, I can tell you that Gen Ed is MUCH less stressful. Yes, you will have more kids, but it’s not nearly as exhausting trying to manage...

I agree w/ what Zia said. The only thing I would add is, when taking the test, imagine it being what would happen in a perfect world. If you have teaching experience, suspend reality when taking the...
