Today is the first Official Day of Summer for the kiddos and myself. And how I ended back on my Blogger blog is quite an interesting story.

I order as much stuff as I can online. One of the sites I visit freqently is ebates. I was actually trying to book a hotel room through ebates and could not get the page to load. I hopped on over the Facebook where I posted about my problem on their fan site.

Within minutes (as customary of Facebook "traffic"), I received a response. I was told that I needed to change something in my registry. The gentleman was nice enough to post a FAQ link to the ebates website in order to help me fix the problem on my own.

Unfortunately, when I did a search for "hosts", all I got as a result were a bunch of emails and this blog post. I clicked on it out of morbid curiosity. What was I writing about three years ago before school and work and life in general took an unexpected turn?

Turns out, I had a moment of spiritual clarity. Who knew?

After I read what I had written, I started playing around the the new-to-me-blogger and what I discovered was that I really liked what I saw.

So, I did a little bit of clean up, revamped the design a little bit and here I am!

Hopefully, with my summers somewhat free (more on that later), I'll be able to get back to blogging! And hopefully, I will begin to see my blogging skills develop into something greater than just an online diary.

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…
