And a late night linky!

Well, I came across this linky party via Teach123, and I thought her idea about a pencil that never needs sharpening was GENIUS!  She definitely inspired me to visit Jenn over at Best Practices 4 Teaching and create my own Invention for Teachers!  So, without further ado, here is my Super Fantastic Teacher Invention!



  1. Margaret Louise, I think it's a case of good minds think alike. I love the time-turner idea. Since we moved out of state I haven't been able to find a job so last year I volunteer at my daughter's school. I helped her teacher with all the paperwork teachers never have enough time for (grading paper, input grades in computer, etc.). I spent 10 hours/week helping one teacher. The sad thing was she was still doing all the lesson plans, conference, answering emails, faculty meetings. All I did was some of the paperwork and it WAS 10 HOURS A WEEK. Her teacher and I decided a teacher needs an extra 2 hours a day - in addition to your prep time - to keep up with paperwork. Isn't that sad? I'm sure there are teachers all across America that would LOVE your invention!


  2. Margaret Louise,

    Good idea! There are just not enough hours in the day!
