HOORAY FOR ALL YOU GRADUATES
radboyscout asked: I apologize if I have sent this to you before. I run a Music Education blog and I set it up so that it is follower-based. Unfortunately, I get few submissions and I would love it if you could take a look and see if you would like to follow and contribute. The URL is musiceducators.tumblr.com and I hope that you find it useful. :D
BTW, I found you through the list of Tumblr Teachers.
THATS AWESOME…both your blog and that you found through a list haha.
I would love to check it out. I’m an undergrad so this blog is for me to post things I find interesting in my undergrad studies and what I find in the world.
cmrubinworld asked: I love your blog. I am now following you. Would you take a look at my blog about global education and consider following me?
i’m glad! this new blog is for me to put new things that I have found on the internet and the world. Im glad some people are looking at it and looking at my journey.
and I would love to take a look
socialchildren asked: What do you think is the best way to deal with the increasing number of under 13s using social networks like Facebook?
i think that it is important for us to realize that the internet is a large and vast community, filled with both positive and negative things. As teachers, and future teachers we need to remind students that what is put on the internet is always going to be out there and cannot be taken back, and that things need to be monitored. I am all down for people to be on FB, tumblr, etc, but things do need to be monitored and people need to be aware of what is out there in the world.
My belief is that a “classroom teacher” is one that is focused solely on their position and subject matter, and the rest of the school is something that is just “happening” around them. A “school teacher” is one that is focused on the success of the school as a whole. They know that every child within the school is the responsibility of all staff, not just the ones that teach them directly. What they do within their classroom one year, will directly affect what happens to that child later on in school, and in reality, can impact them for life. School teachers are the ones that see kids outside of their classroom and deal with them in good times and bad. They never see a student doing something wrong and simply march them down to the principal’s office. They see, even in mistakes, that an opportunity to talk with a child is an opportunity to build a relationship.
Story of my life.
What seems to be true of Education also…
Disclaimer: In my student teaching experience, we called our cooperating/coordinating teachers our “mentor teachers.” Terms will be used interchangeably here.
So…the other side of the fence. Well, I haven’t been on that side just yet (how many sides to this fence are there? Student…student…
As they complete a task, students may earn a reward or advance to a higher level. The highest rank is “teacher.” That’s what most of these undergraduate students want to become in real life, and along the way they’re among the first to venture into a new teacher-training approach devised by Haskell and Boise State’s Department of Educational Technology Chairwoman Lisa Dawley.

“This decision sets no precedents. We receive many requests for ‘special arrangements’ to be made every year and each is treated on its individual merits. In this case the iPod is new and the music is loaded by the school and given to the candidate in the hall. It is removed by staff once the exam is over.”
