    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.

    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 :)

    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

    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. :confused::confused::confused: I was the only one at work to get that letter. :eek:

    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.

    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."

    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?" :dizzy:
