My fellow teachers, do you own a domain name?
I am thinking of setting up a website with my own domain name and don’t want to include a grade in the domain name because a) I don’t know what grade I will be teaching and b) I want to use the same name when and if I switch grades in the future. Any suggestions?

seekelslearn asked: TAG, you’re it! The rules are to state ten random facts about yourself. Then send this to the five nicest people on tumblr. (Except those are less "rules" than "mild suggestions which you should feel free to ignore if you're tired or busy or just don't feel like it".) :)
I am no longer a student teacher!
What a packed 2 semesters of student teaching this was… Now, I am going to get ready for my interview with my dream district, which is in about two weeks. Then, the job hunt will begin. I already have about 14 schools lined up on my “dream” list…district needs to hire me first, though!

I expect too much of people.
As I have already shared here, I am beyond excited to graduate and the recent news that I will be receiving honors is just the icing on the cake! I was sharing this excitement with my master teacher and she didn’t offer one “congratulations” or a “good job you have worked so hard and deserve it” no “I am so proud!” She could just see the excitement oozing...

It is going to be bittersweet. I am sad to say goodbye to these kids that have become a part of my everyday life. I will always remember the silly/cute things that they said or did. The “light bulb” moments when they understood a new concept or became more fluent in their reading. The thought that I had something to do with that, I helped build the foundation for their future...

"My pencil lost itself."
A boy raised his hand and said this today… The new, best, way to say “I lost my pencil.”
What a crazy day!
It was a rough one in the classroom. The kiddies were very talkative and wiggle worms. They weren’t as willing to sit still on the rug and listen in the morning. My nerves have been all shot because of my workload therefore my patience had reached it’s limit today. I was worn out by recess! That had never happened before…then my math lesson fell through because we didn’t...
"Is today tomorrow?"
I had one of my kindergarteners ask me this today….after thinking about it this whole day, I still don’t know what he meant by that. I asked him, “What do you mean?” and he just said, “Is today tomorrow?!” And then he walked away.
I just had my final observation as a student...

My last week of planning as a student teacher.
Whoa. This blog will soon make the shift from student teacher to first year teacher, hopefully really soon. That is scary. Where did the time go?

everyfiredies: thingsforteachers: I’ve been seeing a lot of pictures with teachers with jeans on at work which is crazy to me!

Day 2 of full day teaching.
I love it! I learn so much by just teaching the whole day through instead of teaching, sitting and observing, and then teaching again. When you teach the whole day, everything just flows better…in my opinion. All of the observations I have done and the things I have learned I can now use in a real classroom environment. Feels great! Only thing is…my cooperating teacher is having a...

This means I will be doing all the teaching from the instant the students walk in to the moment they leave. This will make it feel more like the real deal! Let’s do this.

I don’t like being around people like that. It inhibits me from sharing anything about myself because in the end the word revolves around that other person and I am merely a person just visiting.

What vitamins do you take daily?
I am looking for a good multivitamin for a women in her 20s that has never taken vitamins except the Flintstones ones as a kid. Thank you!
