From Melissa Kelly, your Guide to Secondary Education
As the year comes to an end, teachers will be left with a couple of days to ‘checkout’ of their classroom before they begin their summer vacation in earnest.
End of the Year Checklist 

Schools typically give teachers a list of what they have to do before they can be released for the summer. However, this typically does not cover everything that a teacher needs to remember before they hand in their keys and leave. This list includes both the obvious and less obvious items that teachers need to make sure that they complete before they head out for summer break.

Teaching Seniors 

There is a certain attitude in high schools that Senior teachers often get off easy. Typically, their students finish sooner than the rest of the school. Further, the worst behaved students have often times left school for good by that point. Despite these positives, teaching Seniors is not always a bed of roses.

“A Deep & Sacred Bow to Mothers.” – Doc Meek

Sunday, May 13, 2012. Today I am grateful for my mother (92 years old), and for mothers everywhere. Let’s face it, mothers are what makes the world work. – Doc Meek

My mother, with grandchild, as if in an ancient culture

Here is a guest newsletter from Simran Khurana:

Quotations By Topic By Person Mother’s Day Quotes
From Simran Khurana, your Guide to Quotations
On Mother’s Day, indulge your mother with gifts and greeting cards. She may not admit it to you, but she loves being pampered. Shower her with presents or take her out for a day of celebration. It is your turn to look after her needs, so do the best you can.

Mom Quotes

As a child, I never understood my mother’s greatness. Today, as a mother, I realize how large-hearted my mother is. These mom quotes are dedicated to mothers.
.
Mother’s Day Quotes

Behind every successful leader, is a great mother. It is rightly said that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.
.
Motherhood Quotes

From the moment the mother conceives a baby, her heart is no longer at ease. She constantly worries about the welfare of her child, even when her child is a fully-grown adult. We call this ‘motherhood.’
.
Mother’s Day

Salute the spirit of the mother, who sacrificed her child at the altar of patriotism. Only a woman of mettle who embraces the entire nation as her own offspring can devote her child to serve for the defense of her country.
