You are also saying “Michael Caine” the way Michael Caine says his name?

mariacollins: My students found my YouTube… *insert explicit here* Here’s to never being able to live it down… Why am I so embarassed? Also, on an unrelated note, all my videos are now hidden!

Happy Pi Day!!
Me and my kids will be deriving Pi from pie!! How cool is that?? What are you doing foe Pi day, #education?
I was totally not looking forward to spending my whole Saturday at this thing, but it turned into a blast! I got to volunteer at the robotics FLL table and learn to run a bunch of robots, I turned heads when ten teenage girls rushed me with hugs screaming my name, and three of my kids took first place!! I’m exhausted, but today totally motivated me to kick butt the next few weeks, until...

salute my shorts: Montessori →
oh-em-rochelle: So. For those who know me IRL know that I love working with children and teens. I TA’d (kinda) for a class in college and loved it. I’ve worked at childhood enrichment centers and have taught theatre for 6 years in middle schools, after school programs, and summer programs. I’ve always… I’ve been working in a Montessori School, but teaching the middle school...

lhuddles: tobemissg: I know some of you are already back, but for those of us going back Monday: What are you looking forward to/(dare I say) excited about?

Math-Girl: Math tricks - like the "butterfly" →
coloursinaflower: I originally wrote this as a reblog, and then decided I didn’t want it to seem like I was coming down hard on the poster. I spend a lot of time working on math. Teaching math is my passion. I participate in ongoing math research in the classroom. And while I understand… Yes!!! I think people, teachers even, forget that math is just like every other subject… We...
I have a famous kid in my class...
… Well, kinda, his dad was a famous sports guy thing. Anyway, it doesn’t really have much impact on the class, so I usually forget, but I remembered this week when he gave me a Christmas present: a Coach scarf. Like, a real one. Now, I don’t own any coach stuff, but I know enough to know that the scarf probably is worth more than all the presents my husband and I bought each...

Yes I did, and I’m in love with it!! Thank you so much!!
Thirty years ago, there wasn’t even color TV!– One of my 6th graders (who’s view of history is slightly skewed)
My students know of Trogdor.
My day just became perfect.
International Culture Day
So my Montessori school is all about celebrating different cultures and stuff, which I’m all for. So each year, they have an International Culture Day (ICD), where each class is assigned a continent, and they present a 15 minute presentation on some aspect of a culture from that region. Simple, right? Nope. My class, 6th through 8th grade, has Europe, and my co teacher (the head teacher)...

evil lyte: A Word About Substitute Teachers →
pencilblots: watchallisonteach: coloursinaflower: wincherella: evillyte: Most of us prayed for the days when we would get a “sub”, but now that I’m older (and in love with a teacher, who happens to be a substitute because means experience and pay), I understand something direly important. Substitutes are not there just so we can put off turning in work and slack off…. Everyone needs to...
I'm thankful for my loving husband, my adorable...
And I need to remember that… Ugh, stress shouldn’t come from your job, your friends, and the calendar all at once. And it’s raining.
Carbon killed a rat...
AND BROUGHT IT IN THE HOUSE!!! INSIDE!!! I’M FREAKING OUT!!
sadstagram: i’m also still irrationally scared of the dark and everything that children under five are afraid of I’m irrationally afraid of the dark, too… I feel ya.
What’s up with, like, computers and clocks and stuff? How do they even...– A student I’m tutoring in history, although maybe in science soon, too.
lhuddles: wincherella: willrichardson: Roger Schank: But learning happens when someone wants to learn, not when someone wants to teach. Um, exactly. Agreed Yes, definitely. Wouldn’t we do a better service by encouraging our children to take advantage of learning opportunities as they arise? I think many problems we see in upper grades would be lessened if we spent time...
