Just this old man

As I have bouncing around different teachers blogs I have seen some really neat blogs. Lots of artwork, lots of color, and lots of pictures. Mine just seems boring. I have loved all the catchy titles and I just kept thinking I need something that was just my own. Since I’m most likely the oldest one around here maybe I should play off that.


I’m just the old man, nothing fancy, nothing colorful, nothing but a bland old guy still hanging around doing his thing with students who are almost 50 years younger, Therefore, I decided my blog should just be that, “The old man’s blog”. It fits ME. I am nothing fancy. I have almost no hair, over 100 pounds lighter than I used to be, out of the public school system, into a private school setting, getting retirement and loving every minute of my day.


I am so glad to be able to continue working, I get to drive to work with "young" people every day. I find it funny to be sharing a room with my fellow co-teacher knowing that he was born three years AFTER I graduated from high school.


The background in simple - cold blue -, nothing fancy there either. I actually like the title, color, and the simplicity of the whole dang thing. Maybe the thing is just me. Very few people come by here anyway. I almost feel like I am in a nursing home just waiting on someone to wander in to say “hi”.


I have a weekend off so I can work a bit on TpT and maybe upload some new items. I currently have five jump/thumb drives full of activities, worksheets, lessons that maybe someone could use. Sales at TpT are dead, dead, dead, DEAD but who cares. AT least I’m not.
