I feel like I am completely out of the loop! Who the heck is SWWNBN??
I just happened to pop in tonight and would like to thank you for the evil smile pasted on my face right now kc:lol:. You brought back great memories of SWWNBN.
SWWNBN was someone who decided this forum was full of haters and started a spinoff one. I was on that first until SWWNBN started hitting me up for money every week to keep her forum running. As I was a substitute at the time, she was pretty much demanding a half day pay from me, and I jumped ship to here, which I knew from her badmouthing it.
SWWNBN...ah...let me PM you. :lol:
Really cat? I didn't know you were there!
We're going to get in trouble for talking about this!
I still have some of her e-mails demanding an apology
Someone needs to PM me the details! ASAP! ...Please? :lol:
awww...SWWNBN was how I got to be such good friends with some of the atoz partygoers And cat...I'm surprised at you!
So I just tried to google some of the names associated with SWWNBN, along with the name of the Forum Which Will Not Be Named, and I got the imdb listing for...Bad Teacher. :lol:
I also miss st...I know she's on fb, but she's never here anymore.
I know...her girls are so stinkin' cute! The girls and C are almost the same age, so it's been fun watching them grow "together".
For me (I disappeared for a year and a half or so), life got in the way. A few months ago, I was home sick for a few days in a row, popped in, and remembered why I liked it so much
I noticed that giraffe! In fact, you were part of the inspiration for this thread...I noticed you were back and wondered about others!
Oh my gosh! Don't even get me started on her!!
Glad to know I inspired something, LOL. My kiddos take their standardized test tomorrow- it has me wallowing in self doubt at the moment....
I sort of remember that as well, but I could be wrong.
SWWNBN is the direct cause of the after party, if you recall.
Was that her screen name or just what you all dubbed her due to past drama? I think this was before my time but I am definitely curious!
That was our alias for her aliases. Drama doesn't begin to describe it!
If you try to type in the name of the actual site, it will be filtered out and replaced by ******. That's how we got started calling it The Forum that Shall Not Be Named, and it's owner SWWNBN
I hope you guys don't worry about me being away in August when i'm going to Vegas to visit my aunt (oh and gamble, of course

That's how it appeared in the PM, too.
Really! Well, how 'bout that...
I remember being new on this site. I never felt left out. I just knew I was new and needed time to get acquainted.

Right, that's how the whole AP got started. Wasn't it Miss Frizzle who started it all. She was caught "staring"?
I signed up over their under the alias, Apriocot! Oh, those were the days.
Funny you started this thread. I was ALSO wondering about former members and how they were doing. Every year around this time, I start to think about Ellen. I remember befriending someone on this site when I was moved from kinder to fifth (it was also her first year in 5th). We emailed and PM'ed each other tons of fifth grade ideas. I sometimes wonder how her year in fifth went.
ETA: OOOOOH!!! AND I JUST REMEMBERD SOMETHING CREEPY!! After I joined SWMNBN forum, I recieved a letter AT WORK about her website and something about donations. That freaked me out that she figured out my name and my work info. I was the only one at work to get that letter.
She scared me, threatening to find out my personal information and address. I think it was Major who PMed me to calm me down about her. I didn't post for over a year - busy and done with some of the drama at the time but I came back. For the most part, a great, supportive group of people. Sometimes we are just not interested, or too tired to actually respond to everything so people shouldn't think we are ignoring them. I don't respond to all my email either - I only have so much time and energy.
A person marked as one of my friends on here whose posts I liked reading were Teacher Lyn's. Another board friend was tiki7719. I think the rest of the friends have posted rather recently.
For those of you who don't know, Ellen was killed in a car accident.
Remember Bad TeachOn? Kind of a relief he's moved on.
Good luck!! Our district usually tests this week but they moved it up a week. Thank God, I need more time on fractions!!!!
When I first started coming on here I do remember people talking about another message board that some person from here started. I think I just missed all the drama lol
I also remember Canadian Gal or Girl or something. I think she was the one who bragged about the hockey players. After reading her posts I usually rolled my eyes and shook my head.
Thanks. We are testing science today, which is the only thing I am teaching this year. So I am responsible for all 68 of our 5th graders.
I hate this time of year. Last week I gave an assignment on water/the water cycle. It asked a question similar to "Do you think we should melt the ice caps so we have a larger supply of fresh water? Why or why not?" The answer I got (from a GIFTED student) was "No, we should not melt the ice caps because our showers would be to cold."
I know she left teaching (for real estate?), but I enjoyed mama ruthie.
The morning of our math test we were doing a quick, fun beach ball toss review game. I asked a question, and the student gave me a puzzled look and said, "What's a fraction, again?"
I liked her as well!!!
Some I haven't seen in awhile
uclalum - I know she had a lil one
If any of you have them on facebook say Hey for me!!!
How about ZoomZoomZOOM?
There's a lot more that I don't see on here anymore...but they haven't been on in yrs.
