8 Totally Random Things About Me

I've been tagged! I've never been tagged before, so this should be interesting. Okay...here we go:

  1. When I was 6, I lived in Mexico and could read, write and speak Spanish. I spoke fluent English but could not read or write it and as a result, I was held back when we came back to the States.
  2. I write homeschooling articles for a MSN group.
  3. South Park is my guilty pleasure.
  4. I have no full-blooded siblings. Both of my brothers are half (one on each 'side' -- share a mom with one, share a dad with another) and my sister is a step (actually, she's an ex-step sister) Not that any of that matters -- I love my brother and my sister dearly.
  5. I have been homeless.
  6. I used to be a telephone psychic.
  7. I aspire to be many things, but at the end of the day, I am just me. (And most days, I'm okay with this).
  8. I have a addictive personality. Rarely do I do anything half way -- it's all or nothing with me.

Okay...as I said, I've never been tagged before...so I sure hope I did it correctly. I suppose now I have to tag three people? Oh goodness...I don't know who to tag!

Hmmm, okay, I tag Michelle, Kim and Roberta. (Y'all please don't be offended if you didn't want to be tagged! :~S)

Life as a Paraprofessional vs Life as a Teacher: Part 1

Life as a Paraprofessional vs. Life as a Teacher: Part 3

This is the third part to a 3-part series chronicling my take on the differences between a job as a paraprofessional and a job as a teacher. (View Part 1 here and Part 2 here.)

Let me preface this list by saying that I believe that paras and teachers have the potential to equally rock the education world. They can love and nurture students in a way that only an educator can. They can help students become great.

That said - there are some definite differences between paraprofessionals and teachers. This list is not to say one is better than the other. Rather this is meant as a tongue-in-cheek comparison of how I perceive the differences of a paraprofessional's job and a teacher's job. (And any teacher who has worked as a para or vice versa should be able to relate to my list.)

{Planners for the Rest of Us} 2016 Uncalendar End-of-Year-Review

It has been just about a year since I started using the Uncalendar my mother gifted me last year. I received another one this year (this time, from The Man Beast). I thought it would be an excellent time to update readers on my usage of the Uncalendar this past year - what worked and what didn't.

If you have fifteen minutes to spare, feel free to click on the link below in order to see the video version of this post.





The Uncalendar Lifestyles Pro is a three-ring binder undated planner that comes in red, blue, or black. I received the full-size version, but the company also provides a half-size version of both the Pro and the regular Lifestyles version. The Uncalendar website has pictures of their products as well as upclose screen shots of the pages. The company also provides a skills center meant to help Uncalendar users get the most out of their planner.

After watching just a handful of Uncalendar videos (seriously, there aren't a whole lot available - at least when you co…
