Thinking about thinking about it

Wow, I haven't posted in a while, sorry about that.  I've been living the life of a stay at home mom, and really loving it.  We've been spending the mornings in our PJs then getting on our beach gear and heading to the beach in the afternoon.  Nice life huh!

So I've decided I need to start thinking about thinking about getting back in gear.  We don't head back until Aug. 27th for teachers so I still have some time to ponder ideas.

I did make this behavior chart, which I like but I might revise my system to include an orange or blue color so they are really more ways to promote awesomeness!

I also created a back... it might be too overwhelming but I am going to include it as well and help that maybe you can give me feed back to make it more manageable.

If you want any changes or anything please let me know!


Easy as Pie Webpage

So I created my classroom webpage using my iWeb, on moblieme via Apple.  It was so adorable.  Then chazam!  It stopped... no longer available since they moved to iCloud.

So I made a new web page using Webs.com.  It was very, very easy!  LOVE it.  I guess my only complaint is I can't change the fonts (I am a font crazed girl!)

But if you need a classroom web page, I suggest checking web.com out.

You can also give me feed back on my page!



Well, I am not politicial....

That is what I always say.  I don't like hearing about political things, I am not a leader in Congress, and well, I "trust" that the people in office will do what is best for our country.

But as I sit on the NEA Representative Assembly, I get a little nervous.  Do they have our best interest?  Who really attacks teachers?  Sure... the delegates from some of the larger states like California and Michigan... they seem to have a lot more to say.  At first, I admit, I was ignoring the California propaganda, but it seems like they do have somethings to say.

I am fairly conservative.  I don't want big government, I don't want a socialist society.  But I want our leaders to trust me and let me lead the way in my classroom.  I keep hearing that "teachers are under attack"  big businesses, leaders of our nation want to get rid of public education and move everyone to charter schools, all schools to be run as a business, and principals and administrator can make drastic changes on a whim.  Is this true?  Should I be worried?

I was privileged enough to listen to Joe Biden, our Vice President, as he addressed the NEA yesterday. It truly got me thinking.  I, of course, am going to do my own research.  I want to know, what is a stretch and what is a truth.

Joe Biden speaks to the NEA delegation

Listen to his speech.  Let me know what you think.  I know you don't come to my blog to hear NEA issues and political action, but it is time we do more.  Don't you think?
