Has it been a week already?

MA and I always joke that the classroom is a huge Time Warp. Time gets away from us every single day. Even on the bad day, those eight hours fly by. And it seems like the Time Warp has traveled to my house. Instead of eight hours flying by, 168 hours have flown by!

Things I have not done:

  • Uploaded The Boy's Birthday Pictures
  • Uploaded MonsterMama's Fall Pictures with her Cutie Patootie
I've also had a bit of Blog Block. If I didn't, I would have taken the time to schedule some posts. But I do, so I didn't.

The Coolest Woman in the World, MonsterMama and Bean Pole are coming for Thanksgiving Dinner next Sunday. I'll post pictures.


Actually, this is the last week before our week long Thanksgiving Break from school. Expect a lot of pictures. After all, with the Man Beast working - what else am I going to do?

Have a great week, y'all.

Until next time...

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…
