story that describes how their lives would be different if they couldn't
communicate with any one.

this  <http://www.teach-nology.com/worksheets/misc/mlk/if/> worksheet.

Inspiring Teacher Quote

"Teach a child how to think, not what to think."

Sidney Sugarman

 



Jokes You Can Tell in Class

Back at my high school for the tenth reunion, I met my old coach, Mr.
Carlier. Walking through the gym, we came upon a plaque on which I was still
listed as the record holder for the longest softball throw. 

Noticing my surprise, Coach Carlier said, "That record will stand forever."

I was about to make some modest disclaimer that records exist to be broken,
when he added, "We stopped holding that event years ago."
