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.

What do I do with negative folks? Ignore and outperform. Narrowing my focus on things I control, taking care ignoring those I can’t. 
I’d bet a buck that there are more than a few in our Education Hunt with enough to say grace over. 
I’m no Sisyphus, complaining as I’m tortured by my tasks. I don’t think some people understand. It’s never been about getting the rock to the top of the mountain. If I made it to the top, I’d push the boulder back down myself. Planning. Preparing. Battling. 
17 days until the Summer break. Enjoy the moment, and the resources as you push this rock to the finish line. 
Do me a favor. Like us or hate us. Mash the thumbs up or down button below.
