Ah...Monday Monday

I cannot be the only one....whose family has an allergic reaction to Monday mornings, although our allergies aren't sniffy noses or red eyes, rather they manifest themselves as moans, groans, and stomach aches that appear mysteriously.  In the midst of all this Monday morning agony there are shoes and socks to find, lunch boxes and juice boxes to pack, and car keys forgotten on the hook by the door all keeping us from getting a move on.…

Things I've Learned This Week

I apologize for being MIA on here lately, but unfortunately, my father had a bad stroke and was hospitalized.  It's been pretty horrific to say the least, but rest assured, I HAVE been keeping a mental list of wacky things I've learned.  And here they are:

Movies About Teachers Really Piss Off Teachers

 

From a former middle school Spanish teacher to a stay at home mom is a bit of a life transition. However, I don't forget the realities of a classroom, and movies that depict teaching sometimes really get me fired up!

This blog post describes some of the problems I have with teachers in movies.

Top 10 Math Apps For Kids!

Teaching children math is no feat!  Knowing that my daughter would start her math curriculum this week made me anxious!  Although she is only in Kindergarten, I still wanted to expose her to math.  The search was on!  I was determined to find the best math apps for children!  Between the hundreds (maybe thousands) of  math apps for kids available, I have listed the top 10 below.  The final determination was based on a few different things... reviews from parents, reviews from other websites…

Parent Involvement is a Must

With my oldest child finishing up the 2nd grade school year, I've been a little reflective on my involvement in his school life and wondering why more parents aren't actively involved.  My experience with my son's charter school this year has been rocky to say the least, and has forced me to make the decision to find a new school -- more on that in another post.  My 8-year-old son, Cameron, is a straight "A" student, never had a single bad behavior report and is loved by all the staff and…

Gift Ideas For Teacher, NOT Another Mug

During the course of my career as a teacher and school administrator, I've received my share of memorable gifts from students. And one of the first things I learned as a teacher is to appreciate each gift, regardless of what it is; although honestly, that didn't keep my teacher friends and me from having a little fun with some of the more unusual gifts we received. Since most of the gifts were given to us on the Friday before the winter holiday break, the other grade level teachers and I…

Don't Forget To Tickle The Taco

I'm sure most of us have given our cell phones to our kids at some point or another to entertain them (i.e. shut them the hell up) while we run errands, right?  And really, the worst that can happen is that we end up with a gazillion kids' game apps or an unexpected alarm going off at 3 AM (I speak from experience, y'all).  However, who woulda thunk that the REAL danger…

A (Very) Short Story By My Son

(This story must be prefaced with the fact that it was nothing short of a miracle to get my son to write anything in school at all.  His poor teacher had to practically hypnotize him to get any kind of writing topics to emerge from his little brain.  So yeah, this story's about a giant turd, but hey, at least the kid wrote a story, right??!!)

 

 

Once upon a…

Its time to concentrate and put my thoughts into something viewable

It's weekend!

Thats the first thing me and my colleague said to each other when it was time for all the kids in our classroom to go home.

Weekend means:

  • Getting hugs and kisses from my sons and offcourse: my husband.
  • Thinking of places to visit where my sons can have fun
  • Work on teacher Tilly

After putting my sons to bed, it means that it's now time to get to…

Why I LOVE Infantino Puzzles

I am always looking for puzzles and games that have educational components that my soon-to-be 4 year old will also find entertaining.  One brand that I absolutely L-O-V-E is Infantino!  I knew that they made a lot of different baby items I liked, but I had no idea they made puzzles until I found one at a local discount store.  The packaging caught my eye, with its cute little yellow box with bright pictures of the puzzle pieces on the front, and an actual puzzle piece attached to the handle. … Continue

The Golden Rule…

I’m no stranger to the wonderful world of Kindergarten. This is my fourth foray in to the realm of refrigerator art, trips to the farm, & agonizingly annoying Letterland characters. And as many of you know, I have not taken kindly to having to send my last wee baby off to school this fall. Aside from the obvious reasons that any mother can relate to, there is another, far more compelling, reason as to why I was loathe to put her in the hands of the educational system. Those bastards…

Mom vs. Herself…

The biggest thing I’ve learned as a parent, is the biggest thing I struggle with the most as a parent. Because it demands that I engage in a constant inner struggle with the very fabric of my being. Here’s the lesson…BEFORE I give in to my immediate reactions, stop & ask myself: are MY opinions/actions/decisions what’s best for THEM?? It’s usually not…thus the struggle. Having to back down, bite my tongue, stay out of it, go with the flow, often requires a massive dose of happy pills…

Putting to Rest an Old Ghost

I found an old crush from elementary school. I didn’t find him on Facebook. I did it the old-fashioned way. I road my bike passed his house seven times a day until one day he finally came out to get his mail and I said, “Warren? Warren Beatty? Fancy meeting you here!”



Okay. Not really. That’s the OLD old-fashioned way. I internet stalked and I found my first Asian crush with the famous American actor’s name when I was doing research for a manuscript I was writing. I was hovering over… Continue
