kbrison and I could meet up in real life. We both live in OK. In fact, I believe she only lives an hour and a half from me.
True. Not only could we meet up, my two daughters and a friend also live near me and all are on Craftster. Then there are a number of swappers who live in the Dallas area. Sounds like we have the makings for at least a mini-meet up.
And Suereal, I was one of those English teachers who probably would have loved having someone with your sense of humor in my classes. My principal often thought that my teaching methods were a little strange. Examples: tossing bean bags at each other (A very testy-sounding him: Mrs. Brison, is this part of your lesson plan? Me: Yes, sir, it is! We're learning about pronouns.), my students running, jumping, singing, etc. in the hallway outside the gym (Vice-Principal: Mrs. Brison, is this part of your lesson plan? Me: Yes, sir, it is! We're studying action verbs.), other days: making pudding cones in the classroom (We were studying adverbs and adjectives that day), drawing maps of squirrels, trees, bushes, and puddles (prepositions), standing around reading outloud (Readers Theater about similes), trying on a kimono, folding origami, and watching anime (setting the scene for a novella we were about to read). No matter what you're trying to learn, if it's not fun or deeply interesting, why do it???
