Forgive me Father for I have sinned

Well, I haven't really been sinning that much, but that's not as catchy.

I don’t think this person understands acronyms

I have used similar acronyms in classrooms before. I assume this means something similar to Activity, conversation, Help (how to ask), Involvement (Comprehension Check), Engagement (Sit up, Lean Forward, Ask Questions, Nod yes or no, Talk to teachers), Value/Meaning, Energy. This is very important for students with difficulty focusing and maintaining attention. It might not be perfect, but it has a sound background in educational science. The thing is that this works for someone. This helps someone. Otherwise, the teacher would have something better to do rather than focusing on coming up with these signs for each activity. THIS IS A GOOD THING. It’s fine to make a joke, but please understand this is the difference between someone understanding and not understanding. Learning or not learning. This is the work of a professional or someone training to be one. This means one fewer student left behind.

You are not a burden.

You are not a bother.

You enhance the lives of others.

People smile, not groan, when you text them.

Your voice.

Your presence.

You, matter.

Holy Crap

I finally got my teaching license today after waiting like 3 months. I called and emailed. When that didn’t work, I went in and the lady fixed the problem in like thirty seconds flat. She was super nice and all, but why can’t the DoE staff the licensing department or hire temps for the busy season? I mean my problem caused all of my heartache because of a glitch in the system. Seriously. 

Anyway now I get to apply for jobs. Any suggestions education people I may know on tumblr?

my friend John just wrote the best post about catcalling possibly ever. 

I 100% support this

I’m not sure how effective this would be at shutting down catcallers, but it is so worth the effort.

You know what…

I think we could save a lot of time and heartache by requiring a reading quiz before commenting on articles online. Did you read and understand the article? Yes? You can comment and have intelligent discourse. No? Read it again at least skim it. Just have the author write like three simple questions answered at the beginning, middle, and end of the article. 90% of the time the articles we read are written at a 5th grade level. There’s no way to prevent people from going back and looking at the article, but it might prevent some of the lazier trolls from turning news stories into shit storms.
