teachers have it easy.

every day as a teacher all i do is laugh, lecture, sympathize, empathize, explain, suffer, learn, preach, realize, argue, fight, compromise, philosophize, minimalize, maximize, calm, agitate, motivate, teach, get attached, feel removed, become cold, become inspirational, lose perspective, gain respect, get humiliated, feel rewarded, do not earn enough money, get more than enough compensation, make mistakes, shout exasperatedly, ignore purposely, appreciate wholeheartedly and realize deeply and be the best that i can for that moment. all in a days work.

  1. Nice Blog!!!   I thought I’d tell you about a site that will let give you places where
    you can make extra cash! I made over $800 last month. Not bad for not doing much. Just put in your
    zip code and up will pop up a list of places that are available. I live in a small area and found quite
    a few. MAKE MONEY NOW

  7. Betty Tesh here with a few hints for new Teachers

    You’re going to be a great teacher. You’ve got knowledge, enthusiasm, desire, motivation. What you don’t have is experience.

    And experience makes the difference between a potentially great teacher and a comfortably great teacher.

    We’ve got over 68 combined years of experience to share, which is what we’ve done in…

    “The Handy-Dandy Desktop Mentor.”

    No esoteric teaching methods. No field studies or carefully calibrated experiments. Just down-to-earth, helpful hints and suggestions to help you survive your first (few) years as a teacher.

    We warn you about common pitfalls, give suggestions for getting along with fellow teachers, toss out a few classroom management techniques, offer advice on dealing with parents, and share secrets on organizing some of that “stuff” you’ve suddenly acquired.

    If what you want is dull, dry treatise on pedagogy, or if you need a heavy meal of ibids and op.cits laced with quotes from learned professors of education, this book’s not for you. It’s quick and easy reading, a bit light-hearted, but as serious as an air strike about helping you bet the teacher you know you were meant to be.

    A handbook for initially licensed, novice and beginning teachers that shares classroom management ideas, tips for getting along with educational personnel, suggestions for dealing with parents, and advice that good mentoring
    teachers share for success in the classroom, written with humor by experienced educators.

    As a new teacher, you won’t be doing battle with a supreme Evil like Sauron or traveling into the Cracks of Doom like Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee, but like those two Hobbits, you are ‘expected to find a way…’ (Book IV, Chpt. 3) A way to make learning fun, but keep control of the classroom; a way to reach thirty different children with thirty different learning styles, a way to teach whole-heartedly while fielding a barrage of forms, procedures, expectations and instructions.

    “The Handy-Dandy Desktop Mentor.” is available at my site for new Teachers.
