Three plus A plus A plus more A's Equals... The Fifth Grade... A Tale of Skipping... - 03/20/08 11:39 PM
Sometimes getting "Straight A's" isn't a good thing. Sometimes it can actually hurt, and many kids never get over it. I can remember it now. Just like it was yesterday. Me and Ann Marie Zeitz. We were always the last two standing in the "spell-downs" in the third grade at St Jerome's Catholic School in Cleveland. Same thing for the "math-downs." Same for vocabulary, same for the Geography contests, and just about every other test Ann Marie and I ever took. She was first, I was second, or I was first and she was second... or we were simply both "tied for first (33 comments)
Karen Anne is Over The Hill ! Older Chick Hits 100,000 Points ! - 03/13/08 06:34 PM
OK... here it is. It's my almost obligatory post on both announcing and congratulating myself that with my last post entitled On Becoming Ourselves... Psychology Meets the Laws of Physics I admit to being "Over The Hill." I have achieved that magical prize, that feat among feats... of reaching 100,000 Active Rain Points. This fact... and about $4.95... will get me a really fancy cup of coffee at Starbucks. So... who do I thank ? I want to thank my mother... for without her I would not be here. And I want to thank my Dad... for without him I would not be here (110 comments)
On Becoming Ourselves... - 03/13/08 05:56 PM
Before I began my Real Estate Career... I taught seventh and eighth grade in the Cleveland Catholic Schools. One of the programs stressed in our school was called "Becoming A Person." The main tenet of this program was pretty much as the title stated... we... each of us... are all in the process of "Becoming A Person." Life is not a "state of being"... life is a process. Life is not a "destination"... it is a "direction..." or a "journey." There are basic laws in physics that state that an object that is in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted upon (33 comments)
Are Your Kids Learning "vocabulary words" in their Elementary Schools ? - 03/06/08 01:32 PM
I just finished writing a comment on someone's post, and used both the word "scurrilous" and the word "invective" in writing that comment. After noticing that I used those two words... I then wrote the following: Wow... there are two words that go all the way back to when I was teaching vocabulary in the Seventh Grade at St Euphemia Catholic Elementary School up in Ohio. Just think... thanks to me... your's truly... there are at least nine years worth of two classes each of 44 students... that comes out to 792 of my former students... who are walking around this country with decent (25 comments)
