These things are pretty simple, but, trust me, they don't come naturally when a kid is being rude to you and talking back. It takes a conscious effort to smile and be calm and friendly. When the kids are cranky is when they need us to be happy and warm.

This is a 2-3 minute read. What Problem Based Learning means to me As I have mentioned elsewhere, I first encountered Problem Based Learning during my MA studies. It struck me as a potential approach to answer a host
I was one of those kids that knew I wanted to be an educator at an early age. I have always loved teaching & learning. Recently I was honored with being able to present 2 sessions at the Texas Computer Educators Tots & Technology Conference in Galveston, Texas.
All over NISD, authentic learning is taking place daily.Teachers and students working together to create an instructional culture that is pushing them past their previous best!I received a picture this week from a teacher whose students were selecting their own learning targets and working towards mastery.In the high schools: two
Curtis Elementary is getting a make-over, and it is extreme! Our building is looking fabulous. I can't wait for the upcoming school year. Students, parents, and staff members will walk into our building to see this exciting transformation. It looks brand new! I can't help but get excited about the journey we are about to begin.
When I saw all the creative spins on the Color By Number activities, such as Color By Sight Word, I just had to find a way to join in on all the fun. After some brainstorming, I came up with Color By Pronouns!
A blog to challenge the hierarchy of educationalists on twitter and beyond... not really... just some ideas from me.

Teachers have accepted the mission happily! Many have created in-class attendance policies and procedures. They presented students with the guidelines and also some incentives to having perfect attendance. The really cool part is many teachers have created visual displays to keep the students engaged in tracking their attendance.
I can't believe it is almost time for Thanksgiving again. I feel like I am in the Spy Kids movie, All the Time in the World, where a timekeeper steals [...]
Monday 10th November was our first time hosting a TeachMeet - it was great to meet people who we had only seen on twitter before. There were some great presentations about how to provide students...
It's an example that to be truly engaged you need to be a lifetime learner. No matter how old or how wise we become, we are never to old to learn something new. Teaching and learning about podcasting has now exposed me to what I suspect may be a new leisure time activity.
Here's my 1 minute tutorial of ReciteThis.com- a super easy site that takes your text (quotes, titles, etc.) and makes them look great in a variety of templates. It's free, and there's no registration.
There are a few topics floating about in my mind, and it's hard to pin them down in order to write coherently. I have decided to make this post all about marking because it's the topic-du-jour where I work, and I need to ask the wider world whether marking is just too fandangled these days.

There's been a great story in the last two days about one of my old favourites, Mossbourne, announcing that it plans to select some of its children by "aptitude to row".
