Don't Die On Me

As of 10:30 am today, I am CPR certified.

I pray I never have to use it!

Until next time...


  1. Good for you! That seems like a really good thing to do, but I haven't gotten around to doing it.

  2. Since I work with extreme and profound handicapped children, the teacher I work with and I felt that one of us needed to be. (She had a workshop to attend at the time, so couldn't go).

  3. I used to SCUBA dive nearly every weekend which meant being deep in the woods or some other place not quickly accessable (in the 1970's). So, I became CPR certified. It was such a comfort to know I could help someone if need be. I highly recommend everyone take the course 'just in case'. :o) ♥ ∞

  4. I couldn't agree more, Sparky :)

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.)
