The Snarky Schoolteacher.

Educator.
11th and 12th Grade History & Social Science. Alternative Ed. Engaged. Grad Student. Highly caffeinated.

House is clean. Laundry is done. Meals are (mostly) planned. I think I’m ready for a successful 4-day week.

Tomorrow I become both a teacher and a student again. I’m taking Education and Social Policy and I’ve already received numerous e-mails from the professor, so I have a feeling she might mean business. Back to 14 hour days and long weekends full of planning, grading, and my own homework. 

Strangely, I feel so ready to be back to the grind. No jitters. No worries. Just ready.

Year seven, let’s go!

Found this gem in my Timehop photos today and had to share it with you all.

Fall Semester Buddies!

teamteachers:

During the course of this semester, you will be asked to mail 1-2 cards, notes of encouragement etc. Actual gift items are up to you, but please know that we all know money is tight and it is unlikely that you will receive a gift (so don’t feel like you have to). You are also welcome to make…

Yay!

Classroom Tour: 2014-2015

I’m aware that classrooms evolve as the year progresses, but I’m happy with how my room is turning out so far. I wanted to share what I have so all of you can use these tips and tricks if you would like them!

I do not understand some of the feedback I get on TPT. My most recent comment has been negative feedback regarding the fact that they didn’t have Acrobat installed on their own computer to open a PDF and it wouldn’t print correctly. First of all, it says PDF on it! Secondly, why didn’t you just contact me and ask for a different format instead of leaving negative comments? NOT. NICE. Hmph.

teejay82 asked: EDD: A ZUMBA club sounds like fun! What made you decide to do that?

I’ve had “Zumba Club” on my radar since the winter, but I couldn’t pull it off since I had too much going on. I’ve been doing Zumba for about 4-5 years as a hobby and I found in my time advising clubs (student council, chorus, yearbook) that I am so much more likely to enjoy it if I can bring some of the passion I feel for a hobby into a club. I feel like the students get more out of it and out of me since I’m having a blast. I would talk about it in class last year and the students would always tell me we should start a club, so I did it! We’ll see how it pans out. Hopefully it’s as awesome as I think it’s going to be!
