Know When It’s Time!

During the last week of the grading period will tell you all you need to know about a teacher.  It will tell you about your kids teacher, your teacher or you as a teacher.  This is when crunch time is on, when you look at your grades and decide how you will help your kids […]

Thank God it’s Friday

Frustrated Already and It Is Only The Second Day!

          Well this didn’t take long did it?  It is only the second day and I feel as frustrated with my school district as I have ever been.  If you are a professional organization you should act like it.  I know that school districts across America are held in low regard […]
