While browsing on the internet I found the article “10 Ways to Be a Light-Hearted Parent” by Gretchen Rubin. I absolutely loved the article and I immediately noticed how this could easily be used in the classroom as well. Every thing in italics is of my own, but the rest was written by Gretchen…

An article I recently read at Teachhub.com begins with, “It’s Google’s world, we’re just teaching in it.” I couldn’t agree more. This article is very useful for incorporating easy, Google technology tips and tricks in the classroom. The categories include:

It is so easy for students (and teachers!) to get bogged down with school. An interesting way to keep up the pace in the classroom is celebrations! I found all of these bizarre August holidays online that you could celebrate in the classroom to keep the kids (and you) sane.

Leadership Style

I took a leadership quiz for my master’s class.  It said that I have a delegative style.  I found that very interesting because I wouldn’t have described myself that way.  I think I keep too much for me to handle and don’t delegate enough.

It’s not that I don’t want others to help, it’s just that I hate to ask people to take on more.  I guess that I answered the quiz questions with how I want the workplace to be.  I want a team that works together, shares ideas, helps each other out, and everyone does their job. 

Maybe it’s my inner Pollyanna talking, but my expectations for others are what I expect from myself. I will share, help, and counsel anyone who asks for help and is willing to work.

This is my favorite quote.  It is something I keep in my desk and I plan to die cut vinyl letters and put up on a wall in my classroom.  It is how I feel about others and hope everyone knows about themselves.

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we’re apart.. i’ll always be with you.”
