I'll admit, I'm curious...

“Curious people are interesting people, I wonder why that is.” Bill Maher

I've been checking my stat tracker frequently and have noticed a large number of hits from one place. The IP resolves to Riverside, California. I'm talking 12 hits in 12 days - multiple hits per day not one per day. Veeeerrrry interesting! C'mon! Who are you? I'm dying to know what you are looking at or looking for on my blog. Satisfy my curiousity please.

C'mon, how can you deny this sweet puppy dog face? (Nope, not my puppy but it sure is cute!)

Getting Started

Now that school is finished I can get started on my sample unit. I'm really excited - I've got some good ideas. I'm using for inspiration a theme and unit I had trouble teaching this year. I wish I could have found some easy resources for it - it is encouraging me to do a great job on this. If nothing else, I'll have these ideas to use next year!

School is out! Hip Hip Hooray! Enjoy your summer!

Exciting Opportunity

I've been given an exciting opportunity. I'm going to be able to submit a sample unit to a major educational publisher. If accepted, I'll be hired to do freelance writing for them! I'm SO excited! This is exactly the thing I like to do - I'm always making things to use in my classroom. Now, perhaps I'll get paid for them. It would be nice to have a little extra cash to go into the "Beth Fund!"

Wish me luck! I'll keep you posted on the status of the unit - but no details! Keep your fingers crossed!
