Notes From a Poetry Unit Draft


Download Poetry Unit This is a very rough draft that I will keep on the back-burner over the holidays. Since I will teach poetry in the spring, I have some time to figure out if my outline is feasible. I...

Teacher Work Day aka Rise of the Coolest Six-Year-Old Ever


Mr. Hipteacher took Hipkid to school the other day only to find that it was a teacher work day and the kids had no school. Fortunately, Mr. H didn't have any classes of his own to teach that day--because he...

Where I Become *That* Parent


Lord, help me. I don't want to be *that* parent. Those parents drive me crazy on a regular basis. The mom who, last week, claimed that her daughter had spent three hours a day for three weeks working on her...

Watch Me Grow


Do you like my new banner? My sweet and super-talented friend Heather designed it for me as a little present. Yes, I was much happier to receive her sketch than another pink pink pink baby outfit with little bows and...

Bad things come in threes, etc.


I had all these serious things I wanted to write about--well, one serious thing and several funny things--but, to be completely honest, I'm not feeling it because this was one of those days that I had to will myself to...
