More Rude Awakenings

June 20, 2007

I am a light sleeper which can sometimes be a pain. Like this past week, I was rudely awakened in the middle of a good night’s sleep. I could hear a faint buzzing sound. I lay there in bed thinking that it was absolutely crazy that I was woken up [Keep Reading]

Fuel Exhausted

June 19, 2007

My recent obsession flared up for a while but my fuel is just about exhausted. Just in case you haven’t been reading my blog, I have become obsessed with blogging. I love reading and writing entries and responses. I have found four blogs that I [Keep Reading]

Award Show Bliss

June 18, 2007

Much Music really knows how to put on an award show. They don’t just host it inside a boring convention centre. Nope. They shut down the streets all around the building in downtown Toronto. They have stages in the building, outside in the parking [Keep Reading]

Classroom Deal

June 15, 2007

Every now and then it is nice to do something together as a class that is not specifically related to the curriculum. I like to organize classroom versions of popular television game shows. I have had success with games such as Jeopardy, Wheel of [Keep Reading]

Smoking Licence

June 14, 2007

I have a big problem with kids smoking. As a teacher it pains me to see kids smoking. We try to teach about it in health but the message just doesn’t get through. Last month I started a unit of health about substance abuse and had a very frank [Keep Reading]

Murder Mystery Night

June 13, 2007

I’ve found my next writing project, or more like it found me. It is going to be a challenge but I am up for it. I have never been into the murder mystery genre but when my father said he’d been asked to write and host a murder mystery night, I [Keep Reading]

Wrong Profession

June 12, 2007

Sometimes I think I am in the wrong profession. It’s this time of year when it happens too because this is when we as teachers are asked to order materials for the next school year. It is mind-boggling to see the amount of teaching related [Keep Reading]

Walk of Fame

June 11, 2007

Celebrating our own is not something we as Canadians like to do. We have so much talent in this country but a lot of it goes unrecognized. We tend to consume American culture and degrade our own. I don’t know why this tends to be the case, but it [Keep Reading]

Failure is an Option

June 8, 2007

The only way to learn is to make mistakes and not be fearful of them. Mistakes are valuable for what they give us, experience. We build on our experiences and learn. I don’t think you can learn anything without having made a number of mistakes [Keep Reading]

A Great Day!

June 7, 2007

Yesterday was such a great day! First, I got to return to my class after a couple of days off. I was surprised that I missed it so much. The supply teacher did a good job by the looks of it, but I always hate to leave my class if I don’t have to. [Keep Reading]
