Remind 101 →
Did I miss the memo on this Tumblr? Have any of you used/heard of this before? Remind 101 is a free & ad free program/app that will text message a reminder or note to your students or student’s parents. This is absolutely astonishing. I can foresee many of you educators using this program. Especially at the high school level. If you’ve used this before or think you’re...
I am surely a product of the 21st century.
DIY: Bottle Top Stamps
Bottle Top Stamps These are genius! Makes you think “Why didn’t I think of that?”. When I was student teaching the students had a Friday journal where they would focus on their writing and part of student’s grade was creativity. They had to decorate every entry according to the topic and surprisingly 99% of them loved this. My co-op had a box full of stamps they...
Favorite Summer Beverage?
firstclassroom: The husband and I plan to enjoy some adult beverages on the patio tomorrow, but we can’t agree on what to have. He enjoys Capt & Coke, where as I am tired of it and want something more summery. So, of age followers, can you meet this challenge? Must include alcohol, and a minimal amount of ingredients/measuring. And must be delicious! Bacardi Razz & Coke

All I’m drinking is pepsi (or was) ladies and gents. I need a drink right about now too. Wednesday is Friends Day, guys. Internet party. I’ll bring the snacks. PPT bringing the music. Pencil, hope you get that drink you’re...
So you want to be a teacher.
ellorgast: I know only like three and a half people follow this blog, and if they do it’s mostly for fandom purposes, but lately I’ve been running into a lot of aspiring teachers, and there are a lot of things I wish somebody had told me before I shelled out the money for my education degree. For the record, if the job market were not so absolutely abysmal for teachers in my region (there is...

wincherella: vwalker: iamlittlei: positivelypersistentteach: I might also be available Thursday, but might be sight seeing with Allison unsupervised (and if she doesn’t make it, I might be with my friend the bride). I’ll be traipsing about the Maine woods learning ecology… I’ll be headed the other direction… to an out-of-state wedding. :-/ I wish, its pretty far from Toronto. ...

You can print the receipt from your iTunes account for...
On my way to my car after school yesterday I had the unfortunate pleasure of finding my car keyed. Very keyed. Yesterday was 8th grade’s last day and apparently someone had a great ol’ time on my car. The scratches are on the driver’s side from the hood of my car to the trunk. There are 12 - 15 scratches and a few that went through the paint on my driver’s side door....
