I've moved to a new middle school this year. I tell my sixth grade students that I'm just like them; I have no idea where the bathrooms are either. It's a fresh start for me, so I need to step back and really reflect. Continue
With technology constantly changing, I always need to look at my curriculum and decide if what I'm teaching is still relevant for today's students. Some lessons I've taught for years, like how to format paragraphs and create tabs, but most lessons have…

As a society, we place a premium on innovators and entrepreneurs. They are admired, or for some revered in Business, Politics, and even Education. The reason for that bias is that innovators and entrepreneurs are scarce commodities. Most people are employees and not entrepreneurs. There is nothing wrong with that. Most people follow trends; they don’t start them. There is nothing wrong with that. Few people lead while most…

When I first added logos to my profile picture, I just simply did it in Preview on a mac. It was effortless.

Since not everyone has a Mac I put together these handy directions to use on any device. I used Lunapic, a free online photo editor.

The old saying goes that time is money and that rings true for some people, but not for the unemployed, who statistically have fewer chances of having money. They mostly have nothing but time in their hands, literally. How is time money for them then? But that is beside the point. What is time for the college student?
