Carnival opens on Wednesday a.m.!!
The entries over at the Carnival of Education (at Jenny D's this week), are sure to keep you entertained. Well, at least make you think. Check it out!! (Hey! Where are the teacups! They are my favorite carnival ride!!)
As I explore the issues of teaching my emotionally disabled students, I purposefully change names, genders, ages, and other salient information. If you think you know who I am writing about, you're probably wrong. After 22 years of teaching, I have a wide variety of resources to inspire my reflections. My goal is to provoke discussion, but never at the expense of professional confidentiality.
