broken record

I hate to be a broken record but I agree with the others....say something nice and move on - she will be missed, she was truly one of a kind, etc - no need to bring up anything nasty at someone's...

here's one

Assign whatever you want them to watch/read and then use a "Paul's Reasoning Model" graphic organizer to help them draw conclusions. You can Google it and there are plenty to choose from.

I haven't eaten in the teachers' lounge in over 20 years! I saw it as a den of discontent and gossip. I eat in my room an get work done. Nobody (that I know of) thinks I'm unfriendly....I just...

wrong song

If Donny had picked a final song that really showcased his voice, I think he would have won. But I'm happy for the guy that won...I've never heard of T Pain, but he seemed to really need the win in...

Masked Singer

Anyone else watch this weird show? It's fun. I have only successfully guessed a few so far. I figured out Ricki Lake and Joey Fatone.

I think the peacock will win and I think it is Donnie...

If a resume, which is supposed to be you at your very best, has errors, then that is a red flag. With all of the free resources online, anyone can have a flawless resume. It looks bad to have...

I had a lot of fun with Twitter and Hamlet. The kids tweet what is happening in the play as if they are one of the characters...they come up with a hashtag for each act and/or scene. There are even...
