Teaching Internship and Family Gatherings

Happy Autumnal Equinox!
Yesterday, September 22, was the Autumnal Equinox and the starts the last quarter turn before winter. It's been a pretty touch quarter for me, so I'm hoping to kind of slide into a more relaxed, but more focused, state of being.

A Student Teaching Opportunity!
Part of my education courses require to me to observe in a classroom for 15 hours this semester. One of my classmates is in another program that allows her to intern. The difference between observing and interning is activity; an intern is more like a Teaching Assistant and can grade, give short lessons, and in this case, get paid a little.

When looking for that article to link here I found yet another article of a teacher forced out of her job due to private photos of her holding wine glasses while on vacation! (1) While I've always held to my own adage of "if you don't want your grandmother to see it, don't post it" glasses of adult beverages don't fall under that category. I've prided myself on having a blog that's accurate over the years so I kept all the quizzes and wh…

One of my assignments for Intro to Tech for Educators was to design a classroom (to certain specifications). I'm posting it here
