Sensational Haiku Wednesday: June 29, 2011

Join the fun!Is it really almost the end of June? Where has the month gone? School resumes in just four, short weeks!

This week's theme to Jenn's Sensational Haiku Wednesday, over at You Know...That Blog? is living.

Since I've always considered life somewhat of a rollercoaster, this is the bend I chose to take on this week's theme. It reminds me of the internet joke floating around about arriving in Heaven, not clean, pristine and neat, but all used up and saying, "Man! What a ride!"



Hold on for the ride
Rollercoaster lifts and drops
Get out your barf bag

After it all stops
After the world stops spinning
It was almost fun

You have survived it
Stronger; In one piece even
It wasn’t that bad

The Merry-Go-Round
Just goes round, and round, and round
What’s the fun in that?

In the moment; life!
Live it long, strong, loud and proud
You only get one

Until next time...

  3. Believe it or not, merry go rounds and other things that go in circles are far more likely to make me sick than the wildest roller coaster. go figure. good thing - my life is an extreme roller coaster ride! No hands!!

  4. Oh, I know! As I get older, I can't do the merry go rounds or the tilt a whirls - no way, no how.

  5. Exactly! Well, I'm not partial to barf bags so I avoid activities that might require one, but you've got to raise the adrenaline sometimes! 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.)

{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…
