My Rambling Thoughts on Teaching and Learning

Educators

One Device, Two Devices, Three Devices, More!

Managing Multiple devices is not an easy process and on last count I have a crazy 6 mobile devices (iPad 1, iPad 2, iConia A700, iConia A500, Nexus 7 and an iPhone) I use them all every day because they all have a different purpose for me. So how do I manage them. I choose […]

Where am I Supposed to be?

I have always believed that I am where I’m supposed to be… Whether that has been in my personal life or work life… I am at the point I’m supposed to be… I worked hard at high school and got the results I needed to get into the course I was supposed to do at […]

Wow…. I Really Do Admire You!

I had the pleasure of spending the day with my sister (@littlemsschull) today.  And as usual she has challenged my way of thinking…  You see we have been through a tough few months of revelations and healing, and while we are a long way off being able to say we are cured (if that is […]

What Does Best Practice…

So YOU want to be a TEACHER!

I decided at some point that I wanted to be a teacher.  I’m not really sure why I decided to be a teacher BUT that is what I wanted to do.  My Dad sadly didn’t agree.  I came home from school in Year 9 after my first Business Studies class and told my parents that […]
