I have a secret weapon

I'm going to share something with you. This information is privy to only a select few. Even my closest friends and family don't know this little tidbit of juicy gossip. Are you ready?

My husband, The Man Beast himself, is a genius!

Okay, so I'm sure every woman says that about her husband, but in my case, it happens to be true. I'm not making grandiose claims simply because I love my man. What I say happens to be true and there is proof!

Proof #1 - He is a fabulous cook. Remember the birthday dinner he cooked for me?

Proof #2 - He is a fabulous husband. (See Proof #1)

Proof #3 - He is an excellent father. Oh the stories I could tell! The pictures I can post! (Perhaps I should create a series?)

Proof #4 - He is artistic. Very artistic. When we were dating, he drew  a picture of a rose with an inscription. The inscription is private (sorry), but the meaning of the rose was to represent a love for me that would never die. (Awww)

TMB has recently taken his artistic abilities to a new level. Doing research on his own and playing around with very expensive impressive computer programs, he has put his talent into a digital realm.

Furthermore, he has agreed to develop a design for my blog! I gave him very little to go on and because he knows me so well, he has pounded out detail after detail of what this little blog means to me and what I want it to mean to the world. (Talk about grandiose!)

There is some tweaking to be done, but I'm very excited about the new design. Suffice it to say, it is well on it's way to being...perfect.

I cannot wait for you to see it.

Until next time...

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
