Currently... November 2014

I am excited to do my first Currently Linky Party in a longgggg time.  
{Head on over to Oh Boy 4th Grade to join, too!}


More about this....

Listening: Seriously, screencast-o-matic.com is going to be awesome for making flipped classroom videos.  I am pretty excited about it.

Loving & Thinking: This is self explanatory.

Wanting: Yup. I'll take Hunter Boots size 8 in every color, please. 

Needing: More time.  I just started my TpT Store and it is taking more time than I have/want to spend on it.  It is not the making of materials that is time consuming (I have those all done and will slowly add as I go).  I need the time to figure out how to improve my graphics on my blog and tpt (help! can I just pay someone to do this?).

Reading: I have heard mixed reviews on this book, but I thought it was a fun read (If you like the Nanny Diaries/ Devil Wear Prada type books, that is).  It follows a young teacher as she navigates the private school and private tutoring ring in NYC.

Hi There,

Good luck with your new TpT store. And yes, you can absolutely pay someone to help you with your design and graphics. Here is a blog post I did on choosing a great designer. My blog design was done by Christi Fultz. She will also do TpT graphics.

@Traci ...wow!! I cannot thank you enough for linking up that detailed information. It is SUCH a big help to me! Also, so glad to find your blog. I am a special educator too.

@Alison... you will love it! It inverts traditional methods, delivering traditional instruction at home online (through a short video, etc.) and moves the practice/reinforcement/activities to the classroom. This way you are there to support the misconceptions and learning and they have meaningful homework.

@Renee Thank you!
