I say this every single time. Most kids understand that I’m being sarcastic. There are a few that have to wonder if I’m serious.

Need to print this.

Tee-hee-hee.

Oh my goodness. Lol;-)

An Attack On Teachers

34years:

I recently read an article Shortchanging Teachers in the blog eduwonk, which was a synopsis of Shortchanged, a report from TNTP (formerly known as The New Teacher Project), which criticized the current practice of teacher salary schedules and their reliance on years taught and degrees…

Agree! I am a better teacher every year. My experience and expertise increases,and my quest to be a better, more effective teacher hasn’t diminished. It’s something that matters to me. I, too, am wary of latest, greatest educational reforms.

What's up with "you and I" and "you and me"?

Let’s see:

The short answer is no. It should have been “you and me.”

Here’s the long answer:

This topic deals with subject pronouns and object pronouns.

Therefore, if “you and I” are performing the action, it should be “you and I”:

  • You and I are best friends.”

Cool

gereports:

One sunny Thursday afternoon last October, Lyman Connor climbed on his bicycle and pedaled from his Roanoke, Va., home for a ride along the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. He didn’t make it back that day.

Riding down one of the parkway’s steep hills at nearly 40 mph, a car suddenly braked in front of Connor. “The last thing I remember was going over the handlebars,” he says. “When I woke up in an intensive care unit, I had tubes coming out my body to sustain my breathing.”

Connor suffered nine skull fractures in the fall and broke his hip, jaw, clavicle and a number of ribs, one of which punctured a lung. He also lost sight in one of his eyes and his sense of taste.

After spending a week convalescing in the hospital, the 54-year-old Connor decided to go home. He was still badly hurting and in a cast when he stepped into the hospital elevator. Inside was a boy whose eyes were red from crying. “I tried to make him smile, pointed to myself, and told him it couldn’t be so bad,” Connor says.

But the boy lifted his arm and showed Connor a stump where his hand should have been.

Great, moving story. I hope he finds this boy, so I’m re-blogging now!
