Linking up again with the infamous Farley over at...
As always, I love reading her post about what is going on in her life and classroom--and then sitting back and enjoying some of the great other linked up posts!
Today I am now on Spring Break! It is a much needed mental break...but man, I would like to find the person who created "Clash of Clans" and have them spend some time with my fourth graders--unsupervised! GRRRR
As I think about the next few months of school, I know I need to set some organizational goals--both for my classroom, my files, my home, my EVERYTHING. This is the time of year when I feel the wheels come off and I am riding downhill without any breaks. Piles are everywhere and I feel scattered. Not a fan of that AT. ALL.
I had to mention will power twice in my pathetic hope that speaking it (ok...typing it) more often will help it magically appear...like sleeping with a calculus book under your pillow before an exam. Or was that M&M's...can't remember.
Finally--my name. As long as I have been teaching, I have been a HUGE believer in constructivist learning...I have always wanted my students to be free to express themselves, to look at things differently, and to be willing to take creative risks. When I decided to jump into this blogging thing, the concept of the "art" of teaching kept surfacing...and "The Teacher Studio" was born. It's been a wild and crazy ride. Thanks for stopping by...and make sure to click on Farley's logo above to see all the other great posts!
