Promising Practice

Smart Board Compiled Lessons

Totally Acceptable...

  • To wear the same pants two days in a row.
  • To make a list of all the students you will not name your first child after.
  • To check Communities of Practice first thing in the morning.
  • To have more photos of deciduous leaves on your screen saver than people.
  • To turn off your cell phone over holiday break.

My Corner of the world
What does your desk look like?  Penn Manor High School, PA ag teacher Neil Fellenbaum?s desk looks pretty good.

Sanity Tip

Get a classroom cat.  Give her a Twitter account.  You can find my cat's account on Twitter: @classroomcat .  Have your cat tell students about deadlines. They will listen to a cat before they listen to you sometimes. Make your cat a celebrity on Facebook and your website.  My cat will be getting a 5-year staff tenure award from the school next week by popular demand from staff and students.
