Your Attitude

This is for my friend, Paul. I guess I sometimes see the glass as half-empty. Fortunately, I work with many quality educators who see the glass as half-full and help me fill my glass, so to speak. 🙂

I Keep Bumping Into Desks

smaller aisles

I keep bumping into desks. When I think I can fit through the aisle, I realize I was wrong. I keep having the awkward experience of my body accidentally brushing a student. Unfortunately, I have the sneaking suspicion that the aisles aren’t getting smaller.

Fundraising

fundraisers

Who comes up with these fundraisers? Why would I buy $20 cookie dough when I can get it at the store for $2 a tube? I have an idea: instead of making money for a company, why don’t you have me do your fundraiser? I will buy a bunch of tubes of Nestle Toll House cookies and we can sell them for $10 each. The customer saves $10, I get reimbursed for $2, I keep $1 for my trouble, and I will let your group keep $7. Better yet, why don’t I just buy a box of cookies and we sell each cookie for $1? Then nobody has to cook anything.

Balanced Diet

Have you seen the stuff our students eat? There is no actual food in many of their choices. Kids need a healthy, balanced diet to function properly. Let’s encourage healthy choices and teach them about fat and calories now. The obesity epidemic shows no sign of slowing!
