Sensational Haiku Wednesday: The Evening Edition

I *almost* missed it - but I didn't!

Join the fun!

This week's theme is JOY. I took a different approach to joy as I understand. It isn't anything that someone can bring you; it's a decision you have to make. The great thing about joy is that things don't have to be doing well in your life for you to have joy. In otherwords, one isn't necessarily synonomous with the other. Isn't that a great idea?

As always, you can click on the graphic to read other great Haikus.

Joy’s not happiness
Joy is nothing external
Joy is in the heart

Having joy is a choice
No one can give you real joy
Make the decision

Joy is many things
Joy is in the every day
Joy is simple, pure

  1. Thanks for the reminder that joy is a choice. I often forget to make that choice. Now I can be more conscious about it!

  6. Lovely words and ideas. Wish it were just that simple. Life hands out what it will and sometimes there is no joy.
    Well done....

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.)
