A wise teacher once told me that you need to have a 'bag of tricks' to deal with certain classes. So, in this post, I'd like to share with you one of my favorite tricks that you might want to add to your management bag if you wish. Free download included. This 'Secret Agents' strategy worked well for me when subbing in different classes.
The article this week is a guest post from Descript. Being a teacher-author and blogger myself, I found the information in this post relevant and helpful to my world of creating resources. I spend a lot of time writing and re-writing mystery and quest stories, sometimes I re-write them multiple times before achieving the final product! Frustratingly, when writer's block strikes, it may mean putting a project down and not touching it again for months! If you too experience moments such as this, whether you're a writer of books, essays, scripts, blog posts, report cards, or develop resources on Teachers Pay Teachers, this article is for you.

It's no mystery that a healthy teacher is a happy teacher. Happy teachers are calmer, more effective, and are an integral part of maintaining a positive classroom environment. I've found that when I eat healthy and nutritious food, it helps me go into a positive frame of mind, and the kids seem calmer around me too. It took me a while to notice it, but now I truly believe that kids feed off your energy! So if you are tired and need a healthy energy boost, these yummy brownie bliss balls are the perfect guilt-free teacher treat!
The recipe for these healthy brownie bliss balls is easy to make, can be made in advance, and can be kept in your bag! Everyone might enjoy them in the teacher lounge too if you dare to share.
