Can You Keep a Secret?

I debated about whether or not to post this, yet, and finally decided to take the plunge.  The con of doing this is that I am planning a surprise for my co-workers, and I don’t want them to find out.  The pro of posting today is that some of my readers might want to try a similar project, and would like some time to actually plan it (rather than barreling into it blind as I, sigh, seem to have the tendency to do).  So, I decided to remind everyone of the time you snuck a peek at a gift when you were little, and how totally not fun it was to have to act surprised when you got the gift.  I will leave the choice up to you.

Now that you have received your Spoiler Alert, those of you who would like to continue may click on the link below to take you to my real post for today.  As long as you are not someone who works on my campus, I promise you won’t suffer from any residual guilt – at least not for this particular action.  Of course, now that I’ve built it up, I hope no one is disappointed, either…

Oh, here’s the password 😉

Thanks for Teaching Us

Thanks for Teaching Us is a site that allows students to publicly thank their teachers.  With Random Acts of Kindness Week just around the corner (Feb. 13-19), this might be a great activity to offer your students.  Talk about the qualities they have liked in past teachers. Ask them to choose a teacher and to write a letter of gratitude.  If they have permission to have their work and first name on the internet, allow them to type their thanks on this site.  Once it is posted, the letter can be e-mailed to the teacher.  Searches can be done on the site, as well, for teachers and schools that have already received thanks.
