Getting Ready for the NSTA in Charlotte

We live very near Charlotte, so we can attend with very little expense to us. My husband and I have arranged to take off 2 days from work, so it will be not only educational, but FUN and FAMILY time for us. I’m particularly looking forward to seeing how Read More...

I’m BA-A-A-C-K!

Don’t know what the problem was (may have been related to the fact that I was blogging from WordPress on the IPad). We’re basically a little over 1/2-way through our summer break. I have only 1 more professional development workshop to attend – it’s dealing Read More...

I’m back – I Think?

I had some problems accessing my other blog – Technology in Teaching - that site hosted me from the beginning, and has my archives. I just checked again, and it looks like I may be back (cross your fingers). If so, I’ll get back to regular posting ASAP. Read More...

Summer Plans

My plans are complete – I will be attending 3 out-of-state workshops, and a district-level on in June. CORRECTION – make that 2 out-of-state workshops and a district workshop. Topics include: Chemistry – offered by the American Society of Metals Physics Read More...

After the NSTA Conference

I’m at the airport, waiting for my flight to Charlotte. I’ve a long layover (about 3 hours), so I thought I’d start to put down my impressions. LOVED San Antonio – friendly city, great people. Gotta give a shout-out to Gabriel, our cab driver (he phoned Read More...

The Internet as an External Hard Drive

This links to an interesting idea – that the Internet is essentially acting as an external hard drive – and, it may be getting closer to INTERNAL than you think. For much information, it is less important that we know a factoid, than know how to find Read More...

Being An Older Teacher

I was talking to someone at school this week, and we were comparing notes about teaching in our later years. She has been at this school, and in the same system, for some time. I, on the other hand, spent the first 15 years in the same system, then bounced Read More...

Is There Anything More Boring Than…

…WATCHING someone taking a test? I don’t think so. It’s Finals Week, and I’m in the first day of the grind. Other than providing a handheld pencil sharpener to needy students (not that common – most use mechanical pencils), and occasionally answering Read More...

Switching Between my Laptop and My IPad

I’m such a geek that it’s not unusual for me to have 2-3 different devices open at a time, switching between them as needed. The biggest trouble occurs when I switch from the IPad to the Mac. I find myself trying to select links and buttons by pushing Read More...

Christmas Break Plans

I left a day early, to deal with my brother’s death. When I left for Cleveland, I decided to leave all classwork and grading behind. I needed a break from anything related to the classroom. It appears that the burial will be on Friday. A few details need Read More...

The Quickest, Best Picture Editor I’ve EVER Found…

…and it’s FREE and online! It’s Pixlr – go here for the site. I just had a LOT of scanning done, and needed to both crop, and rotate 1/2 of the pictures. Usually, that’s a few hours killed. Not today – I was able to scan, rotate, and crop in about 1/2 Read More...

Long Term Projects – How to Manage

All too often, long-term projects become something that is carelessly begun, and completed, the evening or weekend before. Like Calvin, students hope that they will be able to make up for the lack of research or content by having GRAPHICS, FANCY FONTS, Read More...

I Just Made It Possible to Use WordPress on the IPad!!!!

I feel like a superstar! Well, I’m not, in fact, I’m a relative noob at self-hosting a WordPress blog. I began with Blogger (who didn’t?), moved to the TeacherLingo site, and am now using my own site, which gives me access to advertising and such, as Read More...

Finally Coming Up For Air!

I’ve been swamped! I started teaching late this year – started in a new system, and, due to S-L-O-W paperwork/administrative issues, didn’t actually set foot in a classroom till just over 3 weeks ago. Teaching 2 new subjects. New school. New state. Feeling Read More...

How Technology Can Be Abused

Apple has applied for a patent – to wirelessly disable IPhones. Two ways: In sensitive areas (???), disable phone’s ability to send or receive messages, calls, or texts. Put phone into sleep mode by force. I’m sure their intent is benign, and simply is Read More...
