All of my school related Pinterest Boards! Won't need them any longer! But have so many fewer boards now! I'll have to get busy!

Good idea! I deleted files from my school computer and plan to do that here at home once summer hits. Too busy now. Pinterest is now on my list!!!

this afternoon...don't want to see all the cool ideas that I never got to use. Remember the days of the Mailbox Magazine, Teacher's Helpers, and a newspaper like teacher ideas. New teachers can see so many projects/learning materials for FREE.

Mailbox Magazine

I loved Mailbox magazine!!!!! It was always a good day when it showed up in the mailbox. I would read through it while my kids napped and then of course I would get lots of ideas. One thing would lead to another and I was getting great ideas. :sigh: Those were the days.

Glad you enjoyed Mailbox...I was one of their freelance writers from 1986-1993. Wonder if you used any of my units.

Getting new and fun ideas was one thing, but GETTING TO USE THEM is what disappeared in the past several years. Really since NCLB, am I right?

I remember a principal once said to me: "Is it on the test? Then don't teach it."

I feel so bad for young teachers who don't know any better. It used to be such a creative and fulfilling profession!

Sigh.

I did that last year as soon as I retired. I even went back and looked at all the people I followed and deleted any boards that were related to school so I would not get any pins for school related things. It was great. I finally have time for all my other interests and it is great I might add!!!

mhugs. That's where we got all our good ideas before the internet. That's another thing I've been cleaning out as the year went on..the file cabinet with all of those files of ideas.

Ideas for new boards now that you are retired

* new hobbies to try

* places I want to see

I loved getting Mailbox Magazine, too. I'll bet I used some of your ideas also.

Delete - most of my Pinterest boards have to do with food now or with fitness to help me lose the 10 pounds I gained from that food!

I have bookmarks of teaching things online and have yet to delete it. I figure I can bestow wisdom on newer teachers who avoid the street dogs and traffic en route to my place and climb the 6 flights of steps and say Oh wise Mr.S teach me the ways of creativity as the school I am at lacks it.

Ok, that won't happen but if it did I am prepared!
