Lean In

I  go to lots of PD days and learn new stuff all the time, but there are only so many bandwagons I can jump on.

When I'm sitting in a presentation, I'm all in. I buy whatever they're selling. It's only when I walk out and start thinking about the real world scenarios where I will use this. I often come up short somehow. I don't have the time, the support, the resources. I quit before I even begin.

What I've changed about my attitude is I've taken…

What's a PLN?

A PLN is a Personal Learning Network. It sounds very cool and it's an idea that is gaining ground. Because of all the social media sites that are available to teachers, you can find anyone that is a mentor or inspiration for you and what you do.

4 Ways to Get a Spick and Span Dorm

Dorms can be bland especially when all that you have is nothing but a generic desk, a bed and a bathroom like the ones in other rooms. Because of this, college students would rather prefer to be outside where there is more variety and color in their life.

Since there’s nothing else to do in summer but waste away in…

Wrapping up another year

I teach sixth grade, so I will be saying goodbye to my students in about a week. I'll see them in the hallways, but it won't be the same. They'll never be in my classroom again. That's weird to think about right now, when all I do is see them.It has me wondering; did I serve them as best I could? Did I impart all the wisdom I could into their little brains? Did I ignite a spark, or reaffirm a defeatist attitude?I have to be honest, there are some kids I won't miss. You know the kids I'm talking…See More

Teresa Conley replied to Teresa Conley's discussion Getting the same technology for students in specialized classrooms as the gen. ed. classrooms in the group Special Education
"You are correct which makes this a even more sad situation. It can easily be said that the students with disabilities who are included in the general education classrooms do receive the same level of technology as their non-disabled peers. However,…"
