I Stand Corrected :)

Wow!  This is so cool. I do an empathy lesson where I have the students literally stand in someone's shoes. This game is going to be more interactive for the class and just as good, if not better, illustration when we are working on empathy. SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!  Oh ya. And this app is only .99 too!

Best. App. Ever!

I just found an awesome app. It's for upstanders (my new change this year from bystander). The best part- its a game. I know some of my upstanders will love it. I would love to figure out if I can get it up on the SmartBoard for my upstanders lesson. Kids would love it (and this app was only .99). Woo-hoo. Score Ms. Bruce.

And just like that ... A brand new year!

I clearly need a course in blogging so that I don't drop off of the face of the planet when (ahem) testing begins. Incidentally I would like to give props to the state of NC. If you at all turned on your television this summer you probably heard the state of North Carolina mentioned every time they talked about education. Amongst the many things they did wrong, the one thing they finally got right was removing test coordination from School Counselors!  Hallelujah! So hopefully I will be better at blogging this year.  I am also happy to say that this year I am fully implementing the ASCA National Model at my school. Our district doesn't require it, so of course my first two years I was just trying to hold my head above water (while still implementing parts). This year it's on!  I can't wait to report back to you. Hope you're having a great start to your year!
