Really Middle School.....Really?

So, yesterday my phone was stolen. 


Not only is it lame but it is stupid.  So it was stolen out of my desk.  I had nothing in my room that locked. (I got a key to my desk today....Day late dollar short).

It was an iPhone.  A really, really old one.  So old in fact, when I went to ATT to get a new one (I have to wait 4 weeks if I want an iphone 5s...) they told me that I can buy my same style one for $0.01.  That is a penny.

So a kid stole a phone that is worth a penny.  WTF!

I went to do track my phone or what ever the app is called and the kid turned it off.  Not trackable.  So I called ATT and they hooked me up saying that it is now marked as a stolen phone and no carrier will service it.  

I ended up getting a super old track phone and I am back to good old t9.  It is kind of like riding a bike...the skill comes back pretty quick.  With the hopes that the kid will return it.

I did find out who took it through other kids :).  I do not have this student.  It is a student of the teacher that teaches in my room while I am PLCing.  (STUPID again.)

But we can not blame him just ask him if he "accidentally picked it up with his things when he left" (even though it was IN MY DESK!!!!!!)

The principal talked to the kid and told him to "check his stuff" and "if he did mistakenly grab it" to bring it in tomorrow morning.  If he doesn't I am to call the police.

So!!!!!  That means no Instagram.  No pictures of sweet stuff I am doing in my class.  No mobile email checks.  Really it just means LAMENESS.

So if you do not see any Instagrams from me for like a is because I am using a dinosaur for a phone.

I have been having the worst luck lately.  It HAS to get better right?



  1. Oh no - that is shocking, to have something stolen from your desk. I hope you old phone comes back or the month you need to wait goes quickly for you.

  2. I am so sorry. That stinks. My husband had his stolen last weekend at the casino in Biloxi. It was a big pain and mainly so annoying.

  3. That's terrible! It's so sad that someone would do something like especially when it's old and outdated anyway... I wonder what goes through these kids minds sometimes. My thoughts are with you! If you need anything, you have all the virtual support you need! ;)


  4. Oh man that stinks!
    I'm super paranoid when kids go snooping around my desk. The only thing I've ever had stolen was my super cool mechanical pencils (yay for teaching 3rd grade!).
    I hope it gets returned!

  5. Ugh! I'm so sorry! I had stuff stolen from me last year when I was out for a week with a double ear infection during which I lost my hearing temporarily. The "stuff" isn't important, but the feeling violated and disrespected certainly is. ((hugs))

  6. That's horrible! I'm sorry and I pray your phone returns to you soon!

  7. So...did u get your phone back?

Creating Ratio Posters

This was a really fun project that I did with my 7th graders when we were working on ratios, Rates and proportions that I never got a chance to post this past year, and I will not be teaching 7th grade again! (sort of sad...but not really.)
To introduce the topic we started with a review of ratios.  Below you will find the worksheet that went along with the project.  You can see this student was using her worksheet to help her think of a topic idea!!  LOVE!

She also was not very careful with her worksheet.  Sorry for the wrinkles.  As you can see the students had to pick a topic, draw or represent (i told them they could use stickers or glue objects to their poster) 20 objects, then on a second sheet of paper complete 10 questions relating to ratios from their poster and reflect.  Here is what this student came up with!

If you have had any questions about using art or projects in a math class here it is, Directly from the mouth (er, hand) of a student.  STUDENTS LOVE VISUAL PROJECTS …

Back To School First Day Activity Idea

Hi there!  I have been slacking on the blogging lately.  When summer started I was upset that I was not going to be teaching summer school, and that I had to drop out of Grad School for a while (Due to some REALLY ridiculous issues at a different school not allowing my transcripts to get set over...Long story really.), but I have actually been INCREDIBLY busy this whole summer. 

I wanted to do a quick share for an activity that you can do on the first day of school and how I used it last year! (I wish I had pictures!!! That is going to be one of my goals this upcoming school year is to take more pictures in my room, of my products.  I think it is actually going to become a classroom job!!!)
So here it is I posted this last year about this time but it works so well.  I have it as a freebie in my TPT store. You can click the picture or HERE to download.  
This is what I did last year and will do again this year on the first day of school.  I took pictures of all of my students on the fi…
