Sick systems: How to keep someone with you forever

So you want to keep your lover or your employee close. Bound to you, even. You have a few options. You could be the best lover they've ever had, kind, charming, thoughtful, competent, witty, and a tiger in bed. You could be the best workplace they've ever had, with challenging work, rewards for talent, initiative, and professional development, an excellent work/life balance, and good pay. But both of those options demand a lot from you. Besides, your lover (or employee) will stay only as long as she wants to under those systems, and you want to keep her even when she doesn't want to stay. How do you pin her to your side, irrevocably, permanently, and perfectly legally?

A donor's choose opportunity

I wrote a grant to Donors Choose for a new slab roller, and mixing glazes to
help my students in their self portrait ceramic masks.
The site wrote back to inform me that they would match any donations entered under the word code
Here is the body of the email:

Good news! Revealing and Concealing: Self Portrait Ceramic Masks(917283) is live and ready to receive donations.

Even better: our Board of Directors wants to kick start your project! For the next 7 days, when someone donates to your project and enters the code INSPIRE, we'll match their donation dollar for dollar.

We bet you have friends and family who care about what you're doing in your classroom. Give them an easy way to help:

1) Tell your network! Email and post on Facebook. Not sure how to ask? Use our sample language and your personalized Teacher Page:

2) Make sure people donate by November 26, 2012 and use the match code INSPIRE during checkout to double their donations to your project.

Crafty arty things..

Did you know that one of my assistant principles is also a preachers wife?
This was nervous making, for most of the PWs I knew had a rep to live up to.
She, my friends, is a non traditional PW. A stealth PW.
One with a sense of humor. That curses.
I love her.
So, with Easter upon us,
