Traditions, Traditions Everywhere

And of course, because two of my bestest bloggy friends (Susan and Linda) are posting about traditions, I have to follow suit! (In my defense, Gator Linda actually did ask us to tell a few of our traditions. I just decided to blog about.)

The question is: do I blog about regular traditions or seasonal traditions?

When I think back in my childhood, I don't remember many traditions. But I do remember two bedtime rituals.

I remember that my mom would sing-song to me when she used to tuck my brother and I in bed:

I love you
You love me
A bushel and a peck
And a hug around the neck

And then she'd kiss me.

Another thing my mother taught me was my first bedtime prayer.

Now I lay me down to sleep
With four angels at my feet
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
God bless this bed I lay upon.

*sigh* Those are wonderful memories that I will always cherish and always hold on to.

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…
