My first Special Education Teaching job

Well I am recovering from my first week as a Special Education teacher. I am working in a private school in the Bronx.  I remember student teaching was tiring but the real deal is even more tiring. Here is my thesis-as I have worked many jobs including steel work, factory work and packing–about why teaching

Executive Order

Now I am not the biggest fan of President Obama and everyone is jumping up and down about his use of Executive Orders to bypass congress, but was not one of the biggest and best Executive Orders–the Emancipation Proclamation–an an Executive Order–and from a Republican at that?  I know it was during war time, but it

Israel, May 2014

I went back to Israel in for 6 short days at the end of May.  Spent time in Jersualem, Hebron, Ziporia, Netanya and Tel Aviv.  This is my favorite picture from the trip. The photo is a menorah on top of the largest Yeshiva in Sderot.  The menorah is made out of Kassam Rockets in

The fun of subbing

Well, I graduated with my Masters of Science in Technology into a market that has no full-time teaching positions in Westchester Counter.  So, I am subbing in a larger urban/suburban city in Westchester that has a very diverse population (read: mixed income). Its been great.  The administrators, teachers and children have all been great. The

Second clinical observation and other comments

My second clinical observation (on ELA, English Language Arts) went very well.  I read  a book to the entire class, “Fletcher and the falling leaves” and then had the students draw a picture of their favorite part and write 1-3 sentences. While that was happening, I called 4 students over to the teacher’s desk for

First Student Teaching Review

I got my first student teaching review from my Clinical Supervisor and it went great.  I did a 1st grade lesson on double compare.  The children had to add two numbers on playing cards to get a sum and then determine if their sum is larger than their partner’s sum.  To help the students, there

Enter the IC-9100

Well, I finally decided to get involved in satellite modes on VHF and UHF and bought an IC-9100 (thanks, Ruth).  Its on the bottom, under the IC-7800 in a specialty-designed rack kit from Novexcomm.  I can’t recommend their work / products high enough. I am just learning the rig now, so a more extensive review will

TR6 in the Winter, Pleasantville, NY

Well, I finally decided to get the old TR6 out.  I drove it from Scarsdale to Pleasantville (Graduate School) and back.  About 28 miles.  The new hardtop looks great and works well in the winter. As for handling, it really ties the car together nicely.  I highly recommend a hardtop to any TR6 owner.  Putting

SkookumLogger for Mac

Real contest logging comes to the Mac! Finally real Mac contesting software has come to the OS/X courtesy of Bill Myers, K1GQ. Well if you were like me trying to use the wonderful MacLoggerDX (MLDX) from Dogpark Software for contesting, it was a bit frustrating.  MacLoggerDX is a great all-purpose logger and I use it
