Put your hands up

The School of Bloggers have been taking a short break to focus on an exciting development, namely:



Or at least, somebody got engaged and is getting married in December 2010. (!!!)

My students have been keeping up-to-date with every minute detail. A couple have met Chris; others have asked to see his picture on my cell phone. They asked a lot of questions, which gave me the opportunity to explain why Chris and I chose to propose to each other; why we had to do so much research into an ethical/environmentally responsible engagement ring; why I probably won't change my name. Not that my choices are any better or worse than the alternatives; just something new to chew on.

Their excitement also made it easier for me to break the news that I will be moving to D.C. this summer. I am lucky to have that alibi. I know so many committed and wonderful teachers who have to say goodbye to students for much more complicated reasons.

Hello Busy Educator!

Marjan Glavac here from the Busy Educator's Newsletter.

This year, I'm celebrating the 12th year anniversary of The Busy Educator's Newsletter.

It's one of the longest running newsletters on the Internet devoted to helping teachers become their best.

To celebrate this anniversary, and the start of a new year, I'm offering something special to teachers.

It's an eBook from my good colleague and friend Rob Plevin.

Rob Plevin, a retired Deputy Head of a school for children with severe behavior problems, is making his 107 page Magic Classroom Management eBook available to all teachers who sign up for my newsletter.

He shares his secrets, tips, tricks, and strategies for improving student behavior in this no cost eBook.

Learn how to....
Teach your students to follow instructions without complaining.
Prevent inappropriate questions and maintain control of your lessons.
Win support from colleagues, parents and administration (which will make your job much easier!).
Motivate all students (especially low achievers and behavior challenges) to produce more higher-quality work for you than they ever have before.
Teach your kids to sit quietly in their seats and actually listen when you're talking.
Silence any noisy class in seconds!
End low-level classroom disruptions, such as whispering. chatting. tapping pencils. dropping things and wandering.
Prevent ALL pupils from swearing - no matter how old they are and no matter how bad their behavior is.
Deal with major crises and confrontations quickly and calmly - knowing full well that you are in total control every step of the way.

Once again, Rob's eBook is available at no charge when you sign up for The Busy Educator's Newsletter.

To receive your eBook, go to http://www.glavac.com

All the best,

Marjan Glavac
