All the time

Story of my life!

You have no idea.

Every day.  There’s one.

Everyday! Same kid. Today she was mad that the small group math station was a math game…

Actual Quotes from my Dad (An English Teacher)

Dad: Why the hell did you put a comma there?
Dad: Do you even know what a participial phrase is?
Dad: Omg. He's like my favorite character of all time.
Dad: Who should I dress up as for the movie premier?
Dad: Hey are you awak? I know it's late, but you read Animal Farm, right? Yeah. I need you to read this report. I can't tell if I am just super tired or if this is actual bullshit.
Dad: Alesha wouldn't be able to spell 'definitely' right if wrote it down for her. She would fucking erase it and then write 'defiantly', because she doesn't care. I hate her.
Dad: I need you to bake brownies. I lost a bet.
Dad: Omg. You cannot ship me with Gilcher. You know I don't like tattoos and he's like twenty-five. And for Christ's sake, he teaches math.
Dad: Omg. Gilcher said the funniest thing today.
Dad: Mrs. Ashworth and I have decided to start a band. It'll be called Great Expectations.
Dad: It's like you didn't read the fucking book.
Dad: Okay. So this week you're reading this book I stole from Mrs. Ashworth's. It's like sixty pages long, but you'll love it.
Dad: *puts books on my bed for me to read everyday and demands that I read them*
Dad: My son doesn't like reading. I have not only failed him, but society. You aren't my son. Leave.
Dad: Okay. So you're getting books for Christmas. All of you. I get discounts on them since I'm a teacher, and since I'm a teacher, it's all I can afford, so...
Dad: Fucking standardized testing can go fuck itself in the ass.
Dad: I have to teach for the required testing instead of what they really need to know.
Dad: Fuck the government.
Dad: Fuck the school board.
Dad: Close the door.
Dad: Charles Dickens was so fucking pretentious, and I hate him, but he also caused change, but he's such a Dick. Ha. DICKens.
Dad: I love puns.
Dad: People who say sarcasm is the lowest form of humor are assholes.
Dad: Please shut up.
Dad: Catching Fire was the worst book but the best movie and that feels weird.
Dad: I wouldn't get so mad when you call me at school if you didn't change your ringtones to inappropriate rap music.
Dad: I fucking hate Alesha. She asked what countries were apart of Austria-Hungary today and I almost told her to get out.
Dad: You cannot visit my school in a dress that short. There are boys there.
Dad: Barbra Parks is fucking Queen.
Dad: I need you to make me a good, relaxing playlist for silent reading. I'm too lazy.
Dad: If I have to watch two of my students grind on each other at one more dance, I will kill them both.
Dad: They act like I care what they think.
Dad: I hate homework.
Dad: I have decided to become a politician.
Dad: What's the one book with the guys and the one kills the other and the chick without a name who dies and the short angry man? Mouseman? Oh my fucking gosh. Of Mice and Men. I have failed.

I just started using this app Too Noisy this week with my iPhone just for 4th grades. I set it so that the most annoying alarm from the choices goes off (got speakers from our tech person) and the screen turns red and displays a cracking effect when they are too loud. For every X minutes they are quiet (you can set the X to how ever many minutes you choose), they can earn a star. I set up incentives for if they can get to 10 stars in one class with one star earned every 5 minutes. You can set it so that they lose a star if the alarm goes off, but I didn’t do that.
A few of the guys in the first class I tried it with had too much fun setting it off on purpose (now I have an automatic time out consequence if they do that since it’s not fair and makes everyone else mad) so they didn’t get 10, but they were the quietest they’ve been this whole year! My 4th grade today got all 10 stars and didn’t set the alarm off once! I was amazed and they were as well; they said they don’t think they’ve ever been that quiet so I definitely let their teacher know about the app.
For today’s incentive, I told them that I would let them change seats since they’ve been wanting to forever. I had them secretly write 3 people they wanted to sit with and it has to be 2 girls and 2 boys per table. I re-did the seating chart and it was interesting to see who is “popular” and who is not because it definitely wasn’t what I had assumed. I actually managed to set it up so everyone has at least 1 person they put down at their table with the “troublemakers” apart from each others. Yay me!
I definitely recommend this. The Pro version is $2.99 but so worth it. I want to get a document camera, and it would be awesome to just project my phone on the board so they can all see it without getting too close to my phone.

BUYING. OHMIGOD.

Portable Robot Printer Is Like A Roomba That Squirts Ink

it’s so cute i want an army of them

!!! Can you imagine this for kids with writing disabilities??? They could type out their paper/answers/thoughts/whatever on their iPad, and just print right then. Staple their answers right to a worksheet (or print right on the worksheet??). No bulking tech, no sending them on a wild good hunt for an open computer in a lab, or halfway across the school to spend 20 minutes getting their laptop to print, etc….

OMGGGAAAHHH

My assistant principal wants her future daughter in law to come and observe my classroom.

I know I’m the only room like mine in the building, but I’m going to take it as a compliment
