If any awesome Nerdfighters out there are interested in having a Hanklerfish car decal, like this one, designed by Eric Geusz, Avery Vincent, Timothy Martin, Teresa Ross, and Alex Crouse from the Adult Nerdfighters group on Facebook please like, reblog, and tag this post! Please do not remove my caption.

Count me in!

AWESOME!

Others shared their experiences and resources. This was not official professional development but every bit as valuable — maybe more so, since it came from a common interest and a genuine desire to improve our teaching in ways that feel…

Work-Life Balance for Teachers (File Under: Fantasy)

Work-Life Balance for Teachers (File Under: Fantasy)
