Random Tuesday

I'm linking up with Stacy today.

Here's a bit of bizarre news:

Last week, when a woman passed away in Oklahoma City, her obituary led police to track down her son who had escaped from prison in 1981 after serving only 19 months of a nine year sentence for distribution of drugs.  They tracked him right here to Houston where he lived under an assumed name.  Fingerprints confirmed they had their man.

This is how I have been feeling about work lately.  It is never-ending!  Literally!  And I'm tired!

I always wanted to be a teacher when I was growing up.  I used to play school all the time.  All the things I loved then... no longer exist!  And all of the changes lead to even more work for teachers.  Personal learning plans for all students, eliminating the grading scale completely - no numerical grades, workshop approach in reading (no novels), and the list goes on.  I am opposed to these ideas, yet I am not at a point where I can retire yet.  Starting over in another school district is not appealing, either.

Now time for something fun.

This is probably what my cat thinks:

How 'bout this?

 Why aren’t koalas actual bears?

The don’t meet the koalafications.
See you next week!

  1. Teachers are heroes, and i wish the powers-that-be would consult actual classroom teachers who know how children really learn when developing their ideas.

    Thanks for the funnies!

  2. So they tracked that dude down because of his mom's obituary? Wow!! Can't hide from the law forever! ;)

    I have the biggest admiration for teachers - the good ones (like you) are the gems. :)

    That koala funny had me laughing out loud!! :)


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
