This is my last BUSY week, school is done this Friday and then I’m sure I will be blogging 21.8 times a day out of boredom until I find a summer job that feeds my soul pays my bills. Instead of trying to cram in blog posts, I’ve been really focusing on planning great lessons for my last week. As a class we’ve been having a tremendous amount of fun, but I’m not looking forward to the last day of school. One of my favourite students- Taylor, asked me if it would be okay if he went to the bathroom …READ MORE
I’ve seen about 900 gazillion different versions of photo memes going around. Because I’m lazy a trailblazer, I decided to write a post about my life and include as many silly photos of people I don’t know as possible. Because what’s creepier than putting pictures of children you don’t know on your blog? Absolutely nothing.
I get up around…
I’m a teacher, so many people suspect I walk each day into a roomful of children who look like this:
Which would be fantastic, but it’s entirely inaccurate. I have a few who look like this:
And one …READ MORE
So, I have to mention this because it’s going to bother me if I don’t. And when things bother me and I don’t say anything, I turn about 8 shades of crazy all of which involve binging on popcorn and tequila and writing copious amounts of horrible poetry into my journal (sidenote: Why do I only ever write in my journal when I’m unhappy? I swear, if my grandkids are screwed out of love letters- they should at least get a journal that has SOME happy thoughts rather than hundreds of pages filled with angst and pathetic ‘why me?’ statements …READ MORE
I often like to reflect on all the things I didn’t learn in university that I should have. Someone should have taught a class on how to work all the school office equipment (and more importantly, what to do when the photocopier breaks down for the 734th time and your kicking of the machine is getting you dirty looks). Someone should have taught a class on what to have your teacher assistants do- because finding work for them often is the hardest part of my planning. Someone should have taught a class on time management. On the trick to writing …READ MORE
If you watch this and don’t feel like it’s changed your life for the better, I will give you your money back. And a kidney for your trouble.
And on a completely different note- tomorrow I will be partaking in the most exciting and rewarding part of my job thus far- the elaborately planned out leprechaun hunt. Picture it- two teachers, 30 students, hidden clues in the playground, fake gold, maps, face paint, leprechaun nets, and taunting notes from smug (but grammatically correct) leprechauns.
I’m pretty confident we will not catch a leprechaun, but that we will have fun …READ MORE
I never wanted to be that blogger who has a google reader number that’s closer to a thousand than zero, but here I am.
I never wanted to be the daughter who would avoid her fathers calls, but here I am.
I never wanted to be a teacher who uses stickers as bribes when she’s at the end of her rope and thinking of tying a noose, but here I am.
I never wanted to be the person who started off every sentence ” I’m so exhausted I can’t…”, but here I am.
I never wanted to be person who …READ MORE
