TEACHING TRAVELS:

You have to admit it… it was your favorite topic in History class, wasn’t it?

“Why do we have to learn about this?”

I recently began teaching the Ancient Egypt unit that isn’t exactly included in our state standards anymore — but nonetheless will be included in my classroom this year.

In the past six years of teaching — and the past twenty-six or so of my life Ancient Egypt has dominated…

They might make you crazy at first — but at least you’ll be crazy successful in the long run

Writing — and — cryptocurrency.

If you’d asked me this time last year what they had in common — I probably wouldn’t be able to come up with anything.

I might have said… they can both be done online?

In the past few months, I’ve spent quite a bit of time researching and writing about…

The last few weeks in cryptocurrency have been… interesting to say the least.

The techies say there’s a limited supply — or is that part of Apple’s marketing?

This morning was… an early one.

Viral.

It’s hard to tell these days when you use that word whether it has to do with something on the internet, an actual illness, or both.

One, two, three.

I learned to teach them to count, to tie their shoes — to be good humans.

One, two, three.

I wasn’t taught how to hand out masks as they walked in my classroom door.

One, two, three.

I’m short three masks — I have to call the office for more as students cover their faces with…
