    About a week ago, I just received an email from a student who I taught about seven years ago.
    This student is in high school and from what I can remember had dyslexia and ADHD.
    The student sent me an email to tell me how high school is going and thanked me for helping him in mid-elementary. This student is in a general education classes. In fact, the student is in advanced English, advanced Social Studies, advanced Science, and advanced music.
    Wow! Seven years ago....that was only my third year of teaching in this particular setting. I have been teaching in this setting for ten years, which means that I have been teaching for a little more than two decades.
    Has a situation similar occurred to you? If so, I would love to hear about it!

    I love my pets! I like them more than people.......does anyone agree with this and/or feel this way?

    My dog is my baby. I would rather hang out with him than anyone. He doesn't talk back or want anything from me (except food LOL).

    No, today is a snow day for parts of New York State.
    Since you are from New York State (i think), I was wondering if your school district was closed for emergency purposes.

    @ms.irene Hello. Hoping to not be a burden, but out of curiosity, what state do you teach in?
    If you are in the state that I teach in, we have met before.

    I have fish. My buddy jumps up now when I feed him. It’s so cute! I take of my neighbor teacher’s fish. I Lost one and a few at home. Too heartbreaking to have another one in my classroom. I teach Pre-K and I believe I would totally lose it if I saw one of the kids do something awful to then. So I care for fish next door when neighbor teacher is out...peek over there once in awhile. Out of sight... less I worry....

    Really don’t think the whole water thing is such a big deal. Maybe, at least to make sure it’s room temperature. I know a person who uses 3 kinds of chemicals. Tests the water & stuff. I add ready-to-use drops & mix in tap water, pour it in and I’m done. The little guys seem fine to me.
