After a few days of not being able to get through, I finally got a hold of someone in my regional office to talk to about my license renewal at the end of the month. She had some info and I wanted to make sure others were aware.
As of June 30, there will be no more Initial/Standard separation of…
Reblog for future reference. Thanks for the post!
Paperwork makes me feel like this though….
There should have been an education course titled “All the shit you’ll have to figure out after you graduate.”
You are found on another #education tumblr’s pinterest subscription board. Congratulations, hithertokt! :)
EDIT: It was totally pinned by a tumblr that I totally didn’t know I was following on pinterest! Hey there, Mrskaaay! I’m following you on pinterest. How did this happen?!
I brought home my entire classroom library which consisted of two rubber made totes, one of those GIANT Ikea bags, and two large boxes. Why you ask? I brought them home so I can pay my unemployed college age sister to upload them all into my library app so I actually know which ones are missing next year. Ka-Ching!
Read the book “Loser” to my kids. After we finished on the last day of school, I gave them the “talk” about bullying. We chose to discuss how the bystander chose to do something instead of bullying. We’ve had quite a bit of bullying this year so I included some real life experiences in my chat. After I finished on a high note, one of my kids said “Oh my goodness you just gave me the chills while you were talking!”
It’s things like that that make everything worth it.

My simple answer: because we will never again be in those shoes. We remember things as they were, not as they are. Sure, we are here to try, but we can only try with what we know. If we involve the young’s minds and LISTEN to what they’re saying we will be able to change education. This is why it is forever important to keep our field fresh. We will always be an occupation that benefits from a new breed of employees. Those that can do the impossible, continue to grow and accept change at such a fast pace, will be those who succeed. Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to do that. Survival of the fittest, even here in education.
Details if possible.
Ex: Did you get a job right out of college in your field or specialty?
Ex: Were your tenured?
Ex: Were you as poor as I think I will be?
Many of us struggle with pull out. I personally have six kids pulled out in the beginning of my day. Four that return after an hour or thirty minutes depending on the day and two that return after a whopping hour and forty five minutes.
So, seasoned tumblr teachers would you please share with us newbies? How do you manage your time to ensure that your students who are pulled out do not miss crucial subject matter?
Although the majority of this is done during our reading block, it is still very easy to have students miss cross-curricular references and valuable tidbits that you share during teachable moments.
How do you balance and ensure that your students who are being serviced outside of your classroom still “make it” in your classroom?
Here are some of the ones we do in my class.
- word webs
- cartoon/comics using the words
- 30 second picture draw
- review questions with whiteboards
- vocab math ( ______ + ________ = word)
- crossword puzzles
- vocab password (like the gameshow- students give one word clues)
I feel I have exhausted our normal activities and looking for new ones. What activities do you use to introduce, reinforce, and review vocab words?
Personally, I run around like a chicken with its head cut off, eat a super quick snack, reorganize and regroup, get ready for my next lesson, etc.
I don’t think I’ve ever planned and I think I can count the number of times I’ve graded during a plan on one hand. So, what do you all do during your planning period?
