Hi, I'm Sam. I love technology, especially the kind I can use in class. In fact, I love technology even if it isn't for class. I keep a list of resources. They're hand-picked by me, Sam.

Men are disturbed not by things, but by the view which they take of them. - Epictetus
It’s busy season in education. Testing is in the air. A time, if you’re not careful, where it’s easy to get a little hot under the collar.
Negotiate first and attack last. The first rule in a crisis situation is a little something I learned from Arnold in the 1988 hit movie Twins.  
This week enjoy the education hunt. 3 resources helping you negotiate the home stretch. Invest 45 seconds and read on. Attack boredom head on.

Here’s a confession. I like to answer questions. As a student it didn’t matter if I know the answer or not. Deep down, I knew liked hearing myself speak.
As a 30 something I’ve chilled on hearing myself speak. I still like answering questions. Writing is my current poison of pleasure.
