The Life of a Conflicted Teacher

Working hard to make sense of it all

#SOL19 – Day 7 – My Introduction

As I'm featured on the Two Writing Teachers on today's "Call for Slices" for Day 7 (*little boy scream*), I figured today is as good as any to the introduction that SHOULD have happened on Day 1. #getwiththeprogram I am:... Continue Reading →

#SOLC19 – Day 6 – My Creative Wife

First, Spotify! Who knew? I knew I was old, but dang?? I'm listening to "one hit wonders" with "House Music 2019" saved to listen to later on. Good grief! If you've got a playlist, I'd love to listen to it! Mine... Continue Reading →

#SOLC Day 1: A Comp Day = A Day in TK?

#waitwhatdidyousay Yup, today is my comp day, after 13 snow days! Ugh! Our district leadership thought it would be too late to change this to a contact day, so I am left with ANOTHER day off. An 8th grade teacher... Continue Reading →

Slice of Life Challenge Eve

Where’s My Mojo? #SOL19

I'm feeling right now like the Iowa men's basketball team. They have a decent record of 21 wins and 7 losses. They have a winning record in the month of February, something not done for a number of years. They've... Continue Reading →
