Try A MacZot!

May 25, 2006

I can recommend as an interesting filter for Mac software. I have made a couple of purchases including a Mystery Zot and a great game, “jets and guns”. Give it a look. Fans want Pzizz because ‘According to the National Sleep Foundation, sleep deprivation and its effect on work performance may be costing U.S. employers some $18 billion each year in lost productivity. Another study pushes this cost to over $100 billion.’ – link to full article


The End Is Near….

May 6, 2006

The end of another school year is eleven days away. For teachers this a special and sometimes melancholy time. It’s harvest time and we find out the results what we have sown. Teaching is a complex business. It is constsnt improvising, adapting, and overcoming the weaknesses of our students, and the inherent weaknesses we as individuals bring to the table. It is fighting or rather manuvering with the great bureaucracy of school adminstration. You must learn what is possible and what is not. You kludge, you cajol, you sometimes beg.
