A Behavior Classroom In The Public Education System?

Are there BEHAVIOR classrooms in the public education system? Yes in short, behavior classrooms vary depending on state and school system, I feel they are a necessity in public schools, and can be very beneficial for at-risk students. It amazes me how many people do not know that behavior classrooms exist in the public education system. A behavior classroom is an alternative educational setting (AES). What that means is there […]

Gym StereoTypes: SchoolPerfect 

My students and peers took our school project to the gym this week. It was amazing for me to find out stereo types students have in P.E. class’s. We went to the pros in our school and ask what the most distracting behaviors were in gym class. The pros we got our information from is our two physical education teachers.  The information we received is what we are acting out […]

A TEACHERS TIME !

So, this is going to be short and to the point. I know how important your time is and I have been long winded lately. I would like to say this is going to be one of those MOTIVATING blogs telling teachers how they can save time and be better at their jobs. It is not, sorry! (Wait isn’t this suppose to be a MOTIVATING blog, oh well.) What this […]

Why Not TEACH Social Media?

Teaching my students about social media has become part of my daily routine in what I call the new day program (which is basically a morning social skills lesson we do everyday). I know that when my students go to a job interview later in life they will be judged by what they have posted on their social media platforms. A recent survey done by Career Builder says that 43% […]

Andrew Buckner Playing for My Class!

Andrew, Thanks man you were awesome! I have never seen my students or Mrs Marcy’s students so quiet. I know the sound is not the best on our video, but the students in the hall add a little touch that will not be heard on your CD. The CD is awesome by the way, once my students heard it on iTunes they were like we should have got his autograph […]

Thanks Coach!

I really never know where I am going to get my MOTIVATION or inspiration to write my blogs, and honestly, I still can’t believe I’m writing and don’t have to. I started, like I said, before as a coping skill and now I actually enjoy it, kinda like running. I never thought I would run for no reason but, I do that too, weird. Anyway, I sent my blog site […]

Help a BLOGGER out!!!

    To be a blogger, I guess I need to learn to write or is it right hmm?   So, why being a blogger is going to be a battle for me? My past views on writing have been as follows: Why would I want to take the time writing it when I can just say it in like five seconds and then I don’t have to worry about […]

The School Perfect Project

Where to start with this awesome project my students and peer students are currently working on? Honestly, the easiest way to figure out what I am talking about is by watching their videos on youtube. This is the link that takes you to our SchoolPerfect channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZbPpT3j9qBOuI-5ofaPEvA . If you would rather read than watch, I will do my best to explain the project. A little about how all of […]

I am A MOTIVATED Teacher!!! 

This quote from Robert Meehan, is what being a motivated teacher is all about. “A key to growing as a teacher is to keep company mainly with teachers who uplift you, whose presence inspire you and whose dedication drives YOU.” As humans or even mammals, this is how we learn. First, we learn from our parents, then our peers in school, and now as adults we must choose where, and […]
