Technology…why do you hate me?

Today was not my finest hour.  Remember when I said “the ability to punt is your greatest asset.”  I put that to good use today.

I had the most awesome stuff prepared and all ready to use for my classes today.  I know, that happens when?  Well, sometimes.  Do you think I could get my laptop to work?  NOPE!


This is how my face looked…so I had to improv…good thing I can.  It is kinda hard to talk to my students about how to be prepared and be all super stars and successful when you are sucking it up at that.  Gah!

However, I ran with the crumbs I had and we had some fun with it.  No, they didn’t get all the fun infographics on how to take stellar notes, or the power point on how to be the best student ever.  Instead, we talked about life stuff.  It will really get them farther anyway.  I hit on the goal setting, and notes simply because they have to hear it.

What they really needed, they heard.  So, I guess they learned something…


I am a mom, wife, and teacher. I am a hot mess sometimes and sometimes I think I have it all figured out. Teaching for me is about teaching to the whole kid and making sure I am staying true to who I am in the process. I am far from perfect, but I try my best.
