Internal Affairs

This post is just a quick check-in to alert whatever regular readers I have of some changes that will be taking place on this site in the next week or so.

The first is the biggest: I’ve signed up for the Amazon Associates Program. This means that any future book reviews I write will include links to Amazon for you to be able to buy the book. If you purchase the book by using one of my links, I get what is essentially a referral commission, since I’m hooking them up with a sale. It seems like a nice program; we’ll see how implementing it goes. Once I finish getting acquainted with the program, you’ll see a new tab at the top, containing the required disclaimers about this situation.

The second is this: I’m planning an overhaul of the way I’ve set up my links pages. I’m not sure how I’m going to organize them, but I’m dissatisfied with their look. When I’ve finished, I’ll make a note in a post, in case it’s of interest to you.

I may also revise the “about” page, but that’ll depend on how industrious I feel this week. I do have a deadline looming on a project for school.

That’s all! Keep your eyes peeled for the positive changes.

Checking in

Just making a quick post to note that I haven’t disappeared….. this week is SPRING BREAK. I hope to get a little bit of blogging done (and perhaps some entries stashed to post later), but if my attention wanders, at least you’ll know why.

Also: thank goodness it’s finally feeling like spring!

After much procrastination, my education blog is emerging from the pile of good intentions under which it was hiding.

Most of the information you need is over at the “about” page. Click on “Nutritional Information” at the top to take a look at it. The Cliff’s Notes version is this: I’m going to use this space to post about things that work and things that don’t work in the classroom. There will be tips, tricks, links, book reviews, and the occasional story of student hilarity.

I absolutely, completely, unabashedly love what I do. I hope that this blog helps you catch the excitement. For now, I’m going to leave you with a quote from the late, great Jim Henson. “[Kids] don’t remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are.” (From It’s Not Easy Being Green: and Other Things to Consider)
