Rocketship Education Teacher Becomes a Student to Understand Them

Emma Volpe is a teacher at Rocket ship United Academy. She was excited to hear about the Professional Development Fund back in 2015. She had worked for the public charter school for a few years before she heard about the Rocket ship Education Program. This is a program that allows teachers who have worked with Rocket ship Education for at least three years to get $1,000 for their professional development.  Emma knows that she did not want to use the funds to attend a series of lectures or conferences. She recently started teaching English to students who came from a… [Read More]

Review of An Essay Service with Cheap Prices

For the majority of students it is evident that writing help should not be expensive. Previously, expensive essays and other papers were justified — academic writing services were scarce and you had to look for rather long time to find a reliable one. These days, writing services can be found in a few clicks and there is less and less scam services as they are well-filtered by Google engines and can be easily detected due to online references. When something is not exclusive anymore, it should not be expensive anymore. That is why it is utterly ridiculous to order papers… [Read More]

Teaching 5 Year Olds About All Sorts of Family’s In School Who Decides?

So here we are in 2019, society has supposed to have moved on we have become more tolerant and understanding as people, but have we really. There is sadly still in 2019 a bigot narrow minded large percentage of people that try to dictate to us what is considered normal. Normal now there is a word that nowadays is used so inappropriately especially when it comes to family, because people that have very narrow minds use it in such way that if a family doesn’t consist of mum, dad and children anything and everything beyond that is not “normal” this… [Read More]

Pride In My Daughter E What Wonderful Text I Received

My 21 year old daughter is now carving out her life in another city to where I live, it’s not quite what I thought would happen when I remember her being a little girl and starting school, but you at some point start living your own life and making your own decisions about exactly how you want to live your life. I know did at around her age. Even though we live a two hour drive apart we are still as close as ever and the other day she texted me which had an image attached to it was this…. [Read More]

Homework Oh! How’s It’s Changed

Ok! I come from the era of schooling when homework didn’t start until you started high school. I guess that makes me old, haha! Well, not that old! I genuinely cannot remember having any homework during primary and junior school, and I am happy about this because it allowed me to be a kid, so that when I got home from school I could go and play outside with my friends or watch TV, which I think is perfectly normal for any child up to the age of 10 or 11. The last thing thing children need at that age… [Read More]

Year 2 And SATS: My Thoughts

My twin girls, R and M, have now been in year 2 for nearly a month, and already I’ve noticed a huge difference in both of them.   In their previous years they tended to have teachers that were for want of a better description, smiley and happy all the time, and most of their learning was done through play, but this has all changed since they started year 2. When we asked the girls what their new teacher is like, both of the girls replied saying she shouts a lot. Of course there is nothing wrong with a teacher… [Read More]

A Final Post About My Daughter E And University: She Is A Qualified Nurse

It’s been nearly three years since I took my daughter, E, to Southampton to start her university course to study nursing. It actually only seems like yesterday, and I clearly remember how emotional I was at leaving E at her university halls, and the drive back home was lonely. It gave me plenty of time to reflect on how much she had achieved in such a short time, and of course I knew I was going to miss her, and it was tough leaving her a two hour drive away from home, but that’s life and your children grow up… [Read More]

Does A University Education Prepare You For The Real World?

I will start this post by saying I never went to university or for that matter ever had the opportunity to do so. At age sixteen I finished my GCSE’s and was promptly told by my mother that I needed to find a job as she was not going to fund my life. So on a personal experience level I have no idea of how university does or doesn’t prepare you for the real world, but… Two of my children have attended university. One has completed her course and the other is moving into his second year in September, so… [Read More]
