"Here’s the thing: I lose sleep because of you. Every week. Before I tell you why, you should understand the truth about school. You see, the main event of school is not academic learning. It never has been. It never will be. And, if you find someone who is passionate in claiming that it is about academics, that person is lying to himself or herself and may genuinely believe that lie. Yes, algebra, essay writing, Spanish, the judicial process — all are important and worth knowing. But they are not the MAIN event. The main event is learning how to deal with the harshness of life when it gets difficult — how to overcome problems as simple as a forgotten locker combination, to obnoxious peers, to gossip, to people doubting you, to asking for help in the face of self-doubt, to pushing yourself to concentrate when a million other thoughts and temptations are fingertips away. It is your resilience in conquering the main event — adversity — that truly prepares you for life after school. Because, mark my words, school is not the most challenging time you will have in life."

So I am currently trying to plan tomorrow’s lesson without the use of technology to commemorate Earth Day.
It is proving to be a struggle and I am feeling very blessed to have been able to use powerpoint, internet and projectors in the classroom throughout my practicum.
Props and respect to those who teach without access to technology every day!!
