I GOT MY POTTERMORE E-MAIL!!!!!
FRIDAY NIGHT = POTTERMORE AND I HAVE NO REGRETS! :)
I think I'm homesick.
But not necessarily for my house. I’m used to splitting my time up in different places, and as a result I don’t believe I have a physical home that I really call home. I’m not saying I don’t have places to call home because I do. I just mean that I feel like I’m “at home” when I’m with certain people, the location is not as important. I’ve...
This is a dialogue that happened today after school ended. I was rehashing the day's flops and successes with the Kindergarten teacher next door to my room.
Colleague: You know, it's pretty sad how you can already tell in Kindergarten which kids are gonna make it and which won't.
Me (half-joking, half-challenging): Hah, well, you never know - maybe you can be that transformative teacher that changes it all around for them.
Colleague: HAH, please. No. That's why they hired you, Teach For America kid. That's your job.
She's not a wholly unpleasant person, really, but it's her philosophies and passivity, stubbornness and disinclination to change, "woe-is-me-I'm-the-victim" mentality, and low expectations that fuel the fire to this academic epidemic in the first place.
Seriously? I'm never giving up on any of my kids - especially not so early in the game. It was their first day of their first year in elementary school ever.
Fine, I'll be the young, perhaps naive TFA teacher. Whatever. But my kids are going to blow hers out of the water. =]

Brian: Do you like tennis?
Me: Yeah sure.
Brian: Nadal is thinking about moving to golf because his knees are getting bad.
Me: That's weird. He's going to ruin his hips then. He's built like an ape.
Me: Nadal looks like an ape.
Brian: I have a friend.
Me: That plays tennis?
Brian: No, that's built like an ape.

wordbox: I had a patient not too long ago who needed to be transported to a doctor’s office for a surgery follow-up. The head of his right leg femur had popped out of its socket, and he had had surgery to fix it. The problem was, it was slowly pushing itself back out. He hadn’t been up out of bed for physical therapy, or at all lately. He hadn’t been wearing the post-surgery wedge or his...
