firstclassroom: I wish I lived in a state/district that provided continuing education funds for teachers. As it is, I have to complete a certain number of credits every 5 years to keep my certification. Unless I find free courses, I pay out of my own pocket. If I got assistance, I would love to get another degree in Earth Science, the subject I love and teach. Co-signed.

The need for funds is a long story, but know it would be going to our 3 Pre-K’s celebration on the last day of school. We’d like to buy a small spread of food and some resources for the kids to take home. Please e-mail me positivelypt (at) gmail (dot) com or use fan mail! Thanks!
Photo Slideshow: Poverty in Today’s America →
povertyinafirstworldnation: America’s poor are, unfortunately, often out of sight and out of mind. In the tradition of groundbreaking photojournalists like Jacob Riis, Dorothea Lange Seriously, go click through these. Read the captions.

Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD →
In the United States, at least 9% of school-aged children have been diagnosed with ADHD, and are taking pharmaceutical medications. In France, the percentage of kids diagnosed and medicated for ADHD is less than .5%. How come the epidemic of ADHD—which has become firmly established in the United States—has almost completely passed over children in France?

Ok, I am going to lay down until 8:45.

1. Four of my closest friends in Florida are people I did not like when I first met them. Usually my gut is pretty right on with people, but it is important to know sometimes you’re wrong and to keep an open mind. 2. Before I taught Pre-K, I thought of Pre-K teachers as a little bit lesser-than. I taught other grade levels, but in remembering my own Pre-K experience didn’t think...

Where are all the black boys? →
teachmoments: As an English Language Arts instructor in both middle and high schools for the past ten years, I can tell you how big a problem this is. When I was working in Brooklyn, my fellow teachers and I were always tearing our hair out trying to find engaging novels where our students would see themselves reflected in the protagonists. It was hard and it’s become even harder today.
