  3. Had a great Monday, but ended the day with an e-mail that left me feeling embarrassed. Especially since the principal was cc’d in this e-mail. Ouch.

    But now I have to remind myself that, even though I am a 3rd year teacher now, I still have a lot to learn and I’ll have to make a few mistakes in order TO learn.

    I’m just trying to look out for my students and try to offer them the best that will support them.

    Another short scene (part of the short story I am working on) - I had to break it into two parts as it was too big to fit into one GIF.

  6. Still here, still teaching!

    I know I haven’t Tumblred for a while….it might be because I follow so many different Tumblrs (education, art, book arts, craft, reading, etc) that I get overwhelmed when I look at my feed.

    But teaching is going great!

    Something new I am doing this year is using our iPads as document cameras. Students are currently working on a shading worksheet and now I can lead them through each part of it by demonstrating with the camera function on the iPad, and then as I circulate and help students, I can refer to my example on the screen, or demonstrate more! This also causes many students to slow down and work carefully, rather than zooming through all 3 pages quickly and then I have to spend time telling them what they need to fix.

    I know a few of my students mistake my “help” as criticism…because I still get the “is this good? am I doing this right? do you like this?” questions (these are high schoolers!). But I explained that when they turn this worksheet in, I will be grading it, so when I help them in class, I am trying to help them so they get a good grade.

    I did have to write a referral yesterday for 2 students who were throwing little bits of kneaded erasers around the classroom. It looks ridiculous when written on the referral form, but I was generally pissed off about it since we rely so much on student donations for funds. Plus if I don’t find the erasers on the floor, they end up on peoples shoes.

    I’m really disappointed in those 2 students….so now they’ve lost the privilege of using the kneaded erasers when shading. They’ll have to earn back my trust. How? I don’t know.

    But yes, we are LOW ON DONATIONS because the administration is making it difficult for students to donate. Ugh. Our department chair is doing her best. Yes, I know there is DonorsChoose…but our school is not in a low-income area (not in a high-income area either, but we have a mix of everyone). So I don’t know how to make the classes look “appealing”….

    Sigh….
