High School Meme

Since I'll be starting back at school on May 4th, I thought that this meme, found over at Julie's site was appropriate. If you read my blog and need an idea for a post - take this one...I did.

Fill this out about your SENIOR year of high school! The longer ago it was, the more fun the answers will be! At the end, choose 10 people (or more)(or less in my case, lol) to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.


1. Did you date someone from your school?

2. Did you marry someone from your high school?

3. Did you car pool to school?
I drove

4. What kind of car did you have?
1988 Subaru Justy - you better recognize! LOL

5. What kind of car do you have now?
2001 Chevy Malibu - word.

6. Its Saturday night...where are you now?
Playin' Rock Band 2 with my peeps (that would be my family, don'tcha know)

7. It is Saturday night...where were you then?
Work or out with friends or boyfriend - dinner and a movie usually

8. What kind of job did you have in high school?

9. What kind of job do you do now?

Don't think so

No, I was a good girl

15. Can you sing the fight song?
I don't even know the fight song!

16. Who was/were your favorite teacher(s)?
Mr. Bell made the biggest influence. He was my Algebra II my senior year and convinced me I could get an A in his class even though I thought I was horrible at math. I did get an A in his class - one of the highest. He just had a way of teaching that really helped me 'get it'. A funny thing about Mr. Bell - he was very tall and very skinny. He drove a very, very small car.

Maybe...but only if I could tell my high school self all I know and be promised that she'd heed my advice.

22. Did you have fun at Prom?
Did I even go? I don't remember.

23. Do you still talk to the person you went to Prom with?
If I want (and I think maybe I did), I absolutely do NOT talk to him.

No. I wish to stay far, far away.

My BFF - but we went to different does that still count?

  1. "Red Crabs - ugh!"

    what an unfortunate mascot! LOL

  2. Our personalities must be very similiar because my answers are nearly the same as yours.
    My school was the Astronaut War Eagles (1974 - Titusville, FL) and our theme song was "When You Say Bud" (ala Budweiser Beer). We thought we were sooooo clever ... NOT! ha ha ♥ ∞

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

hyena reality Eventually, I will write a lovely end-of-the-year post (probably entitled something original like: "What I Learned as a First-Year Teacher"), but this morning, I want to write about something a little bit different. The differences between  my life as a paraprofessional (teacher assistant)  and my life as a teacher . I'm sure many of you are aware that I began my life as an educator, not in the classroom, but in a lunchroom. After I had home schooled The Boy and Baby Girl for a couple of years, it became apparent that it wasn't working out any more and some changes needed to be made in our family. So, on that fateful day in November, I dropped both of the kiddos off at the Little Elementary School Around the Corner, The Boy, a 4th grader and Baby Girl, a 1st grader, while I headed off to work in the school cafeteria.  As a substitute cafeteria worker, filling in for the ladies who had to be out for whatever reason at various schools around

One of a Million New Year's post

Look around and you'll see that most everyone is posting some type of New Year's blog post this week. Check your blog rolls (or mine) for proof. I've looked at A Year in Review blogs, the best of the best blogs, most read posts blogs and my favorite: the new year resolutions (solutions, challenges, etc). Call me crazy, but I love these type of blog posts the best. Why? Because while most of us never keep our resolutions longer than a few hours days weeks months, there is something magical about the New Year. It is a chance to change whatever it is that was messed up for you during the previous year. Common resolutions include: 1. Stop smoking 2. Lose weight 3. Get organized 4. Save more 5. Spend less 6. Get to the project that is sitting in the basket, closet, or garage 7. Spend more time with family Did I hit them all? These are on most people's lists. (By the way, stay tuned for the end of this post for links to sites that can actually attempt to acc

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.) Paraprofessionals Vs Teachers Calendar Reduction Days – “Yay! I get another day off. Yeah, it kind of stinks that it’s a Calendar Reduction Day, but hey – a day of
