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 […]

A little about how all of […]

TEACHERS Make a Difference 

The classroom can really be a struggle at times. It can feel like you are pouring your heart and soul into a lesson, class, or year then you get your test scores back from the state and  their knowledge is judged on one test, which reflects you as a teacher. I feel this is what Mr. Meehan may have been talking about in this quote. Either way we have to […]

Each Day!! 

Teachers can not forget that each day we play role models (and not like the movie) as not only teachers, but in some cases  we must be our students friends, parental figures, shoulder to cry on, and in some cases medical providers. I can put a band aide on like nobody’s business.  We never know which day we will impact our students lives forever, but I do know that we […]
