And Company...

Greetings,
My blog's main purpose to share tips that teachers can use to help make life as a teacher as easy as possible. Well, in February--- teaching was no longer my "main squeeze"--- my husband got me a dog for my birthday. 🐶🐾🐶. My first doggie! I was super excited. So here's a little story about th"company" in teaching and company!

---December 26, 2012 was the day that Anna Banana was surrendered to the pound. It saddens me to imagine how scared she was--- every time I think about her past I cry. We are truly blessed to have this sweet girl in our lives. We are honored that God chose us to love & provide the best for her. Words can not express how much this dog recused us! We ❤️our sweet Anna Banana🐾🐶🐾!


So, I will include tips on loving a dog from time to time.


Till next time...

Graded papers tip

Here's my system for sending home graded papers. I got this filing tote from Office Depot--- I love the fact that it comes with a lid- since last year the crate I had flipped over in my trunk. 


                   

Once the assignment is graded and recorded--- the fun continues. I file the assignments as I go to keep down my stress level. After this process is completed I attach a cover letter.


The most important part of this system is the very last step--- once the (signed) cover letter + graded papers return to school= the kiddo receiving a marshmallow!


Just trying to keep it easy breezy!

Sub plans!!!

                   


Yikes! It's so much easier to just go to school versus planning for a sub! "Can I get an Amen!" Tomorrow will be my first personal day in 3 years. My family needs me, so I will be missing from the schoolhouse. Over the years, I have learned that a fill-in template (you will notice there are lines present--- I just hand write some of the assignments) is the way to go. So, I would love to share my template with you. It's a Word document so tailoring it to your classroom will be easy! Click on the picture below to preview. If you would like me to e-mail the word document to you... just leave your e-mail as a comment or email me at: teachingandcompany@gmail.com P.S. if you know how to upload a word document to a blog, please let me know, LOL!
~Keep calm and take care!

     Yahoo! We made it Labor Day! This holiday has always been my finish line from the back 2 school madness. For 13 years, I have ignored everything nom school related from August 1st- Labor Day. Everyone around me knows that i will be back to normal by Labor Day! 

     Don't get me wrong, I really wanted to cook, clean, and post on my blog-- but I would fall asleep as soon as I would sit down long enough to close my eyes. I have been super busy turning into a traveling Spanish teacher. 

     So,I knew I would be able to walk my sweet dog Anna & make a post on my blog this weekend.
