Totally Acceptable. . . . 

  1. To not forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation this Memorial Day weekend,
  2. To have some fantastic plans for a vacation this summer (even if it is only for a few days),
  3. To join the NAAE Virtual Book Club this summer and experience a new kind of professional development,
  4. To have class outside and enjoy the beautiful sunshine,
  5. To be emotional at graduation when you see your hardworking seniors cross the stage.

My Corner of the World

The school year is almost over. How is your desk looking? For Jackie Tichepco, agriculture at Leilehua High School, in Hawaii, papers are being passed back, to-do lists are being checked off, and another school year is almost in the books!

Ag Teacher Hack

How do you collect and organize work when students are absent???

Absent Student Work Area Organization
This hanging file pocket organizer was purchased from Amazon and helps students find and turn in their class assignments when they are absent. 

Thank you Josette Nebeker, agriculture teacher at Highland High School, Idaho for such an awesome idea!

This idea was posted on the  Ag Education Discussion Lab Facebook page.
