Things are starting to come together. Last week was refreshing.
I say I'm proud in my head all the time. It's rare that I say it out loud.
When students see growth, that's when the magic happens.
I love hearing teachers reflect positively on their students.
Ever meet a kid that thinks they make the uniform rules?
This week ended on a high note for Dallas ISD.
Ever taken points from the whole class because one kid won't get it together?
I really missed this over the summer. Test day, best day!
Want to know how Dallas ISD "leveling" is going? Go no further than your nearest teacher facebook or happy hour.
Part of my break was helping a former student set up a baby shower for his girlfriends. My emotions were very mixed.
For probably the first time since I started teaching, I am refreshed and ready to return to the classroom.
On three-day weekends, Sunday is the new Saturday. Here's what you missed last week.
Some things never change no matter how old kids get. Students love to draw.
In a year where we know more funding isn't coming, this is extra bad news.
Now that everyone has gotten used to each other, it's time to see where the line is.
And we're back! The first day has come and gone. Here's what you missed while you were getting to know your students.
Congratulations, Mr. President.
Sometimes they know just what to say to warm your heart.
Every year they ask the same questions when they get back from summer.
Teenager or not, they aren't as grown up as you'd think.
