Daily Education and Technology News for Schools

I'm rushing around right now after Spring Break and teaching 6 classes. Yep, I said 6. It is a struggle to keep things together, but I thought you might want to take a glance at 7 things that may interest you including national Poetry month, some Google Forms, and an interesting discussion on the privacy you can expect on open Wifi.

Today's inspirational thought is that I hope you'll be the rainbow in someone else's cloud. As teachers, we impact so many students every day. We should be the kind of people that students WANT to be around. Would you want to be around yourself? How do you handle life and your profession in general? We can all change and improve. Our subject may be hard but our face doesn't have to be. We can be the kind, loving, encouraging people that our students need us to be. You don't have to be a hugger or emotional to be someone who loves kids. They know it if you do.

Have a great day!

Your friend,
