Quantum Technology could be remaining in its nascent phase and seem similar to the 1950’s of classical technology. However the entire world is watching and patiently waiting with expectation at the likely breakthroughs that might come from quantum computing.
Thank you for listing us as one of your 50 BEST!!!!
Thank you for adding Dear Teacher/Love Teacher to your list! You are awesome!
DEAR TEACHERS: I would like to make it clear that we are not soliciting funds for students. The monetary award is coming through the TEACHERS FOR MARY organization. We only need for teachers to nominate a student…nothing more. The money will sit unused without nominations. How sad that would be for the children who deserve it. Kind Regards. Myra
So sorry…the website is: http://www.maryevethorsonscholarshipfund.com. The monetary awards are for 8th grade students. Please pass the link along if possible. Thank you again.

I need to to thank you for this wonderful read!! I certainly loved every bit of it.
I have got you saved as a favorite to look at
new things you post…
most of the websites ask for money ,why there is not free good website !!!
There are some great websites out there that are free and quite a few of these are. But when you think about it, someone has to put a lot of time into creating an awesome website & resources. And unless they are already a millionaire, they need to make an income somehow. People can start a website on the side while they still have a full-time job. But if they want to get serious about creating an amazing website they can’t do with just a few hours a week. They need to do it full-time, which means it has to make money.
Technology Integration blog by Erin Flanagan ERintegration is found on TPT and has been very helpful for a school library with a small budget
TeacherSherpa- it’s amazing!
I am contacting with regards to my educational site for primary school teachers and children http://www.teachingcave.com. It is a site which offers a variety of free and paid resources for primary school teachers and parents.
I am a primary school teacher based in Northern Ireland and TeachingCave.com is based on the NI Curriculum (although we have members worldwide). The site has been designed so that children can navigate easily through the areas of learning to find the learning games and resources they need.
Kahoot is a great website to use with the kids in school!! You can make your own games or use public ones and duplicate to make them your own. It requires access to an iPad or a smartphone. It is GREAT!! The students go to kahoot.it and wait for a game pin that you project for them on the screen from the getkahoot website. They answer questions by tapping the right color of the choice on their device. They compete through speed and accuracy. The kids LOVE it!!! There is fun music and the ability to upload images and videos. Buena Suerte!!

For our special needs students, http://www.AutismEducators.com offers tons of free activities, a free IEP goal bank (with FREE customized goal writing now available through their Pinterest and Facebook page), and a Teacher’s Wish List where items are purchased for you!

When God created the kindergarten teacher
When God created the kindergarten teacher, he was already the sixth day of working overtime.
Then the angel appears and says, “Lord, how long are you going to do with this character?”
And God said, “Have you seen this special order – should be easy to maintain, but shall not be made of plastic,
that has 160 moving parts, must have nerves like steel cables,
and a lap that can simultaneously sit ten children, and yet that can sit on a small children’s chair
she must have her back that which all can endure, and to live predominantly in bowed position.
Her consolation must heal all from lumps on thear head to the pain on the soul, must have six pairs of hands. ”
The angel shook his head and said, “Six pairs of hands, but that’s impossible!”
“the hands are not the problem,” said God, “but three sets of eyes, that teacher must have.”
“Is that the standard model?” the angel asked
God nods affirmatively : “One pair that sees through closed doors, wile she asks: What are you doing there? And she already knew everything.
Another couple at the back, with which she sees what should not, but what she has to know.
and at the end, Of course the two eyes forward, which can look a child that is behaving impossible, and she still says:
I understand you and i love you very much – without excuses and even one word. ”
“O Lord!” Angel pulled God’s sleeve, “Go to sleep and continue tomorrow.”
“I can not” God replied, “I’m close to create something that somewhat resembles.
I’ve managed her to heal herself when she is sick, to 30 children can satisfy with only one birthday cake,
to a 6-year-olds can be persuaded to wash his hands before eating,
to 3-year-olds convince that plasticine is not edible and his legs i conceived as a tool for running and not for hitting. ”
The angel circled slowly around the model of teacher, and sighed: “too soft.”
“But toughened,” replied energetically God “You can not believe what this teacher can endure.”
“Can she think?”
“Not only think, but also to judge and make compromises, and forget!”
Finally the angel bent over and slide his finger over the face of the model:
“There’s something leaking, I said to you, Lord, that in this model you trying to cram too much.”
“It is not leaking, it’s a tear.”
“And what does it serve?”
“For the joy, sorrow, disappointment, pain and loneliness.”
“You really are a genius, Lord!” said Angel ..
All very true and useful information, Thank You for this! I would like to share that while everyone knows that Skype can be a powerful tool for homeschooling and online learning but have you heard about Zoom webinar software and real time whiteboard for building custom whiteboards for the English learning classroom?

Now, I have discovered Zoom I don’t think I will ever go back to Skype. Please be sure to give Zoom and real time whiteboard a try they are useful tools to consider.
