We all know that one kid at the end of the school year with with this pencil. Well I bet that kid knows that one pencil lead can draw a line 35 miles long. They can finish that test with the nub they have left. The more useless information you know.

What's in our museum? Bells, bells, and more bells. Bells help draw attention. Teachers would use them to call students back to class. The bell tower would be used to call meetings in the school house. Bells are as much as a symbol of education as apples.

This sounds like a good harmless to do list for the summer. Good luck and let us know how any of this turns out.

What's in our museum? Educators used to have heavy lifting when it was movie day. This was their projector. Now they have the the one piece of equipment with a smartboard to show movies, YouTube, really any media they want. Back in the day they had a video reel.

Let's talk tech. Modern student's have not seen an unabridged dictionary, they use one daily, they just haven't seen one. How is this possible. Modern tech allows students to carry every word ever created on their smart device in a simple app called dictionary.com. Freeing them from the 20 lb book that was usually only kept in the school library. Because many students have never seen the actual printed dictionary they actually have no concept of how many words there actually are in the English language.

When many visit our One Room School House and see the Unabridged dictionary for the first time they are amazed. If you haven't seen one, give us a call and stop by. We can do you one better, we will even let you try to lift it.

January 15, 2021 was my 5th birthday in my 2nd life. 5 years ago, 2 SROs and a principal saved my life. Thank you Medina City Schools and Principal Andy Brenner, and SRO’s Al Rowland and Mike Wesner. Here is what happened. http://www.wkyc.com/article/news/health/man-owes-life-to-medina-officers-assistant-principal/95-45785711 Enjoy life, Steve (Class of 1996)
The video produced by Purdue University at the following site was a fun project as I begin my 42nd year of teaching (Joe Ruhl - NTHF class of 2017):
I never even knew this organization existed. I have spent the past hour just going through the posts and this is wonderful. All of the fallen educators just breaks your heart. Thank you so much for honoring them. Thank you for honoring all types of educators, from custodians to bus drivers, to ESPs, to admin, to classroom teachers, etc. I wanted to add a picture of what makes life worth living every single day.
Many Congrats!
We stopped at the Cattle Pens to enjoy Kansas on our way to Wichita. We picked up a sweet package of tickets that included Exploration Place from the NTHF radio auction.
Paying it forward. For the 20th year, I have returned to my alma mater, John Marshall High School in Cleveland, OH, to present a Sroka Scholarship Award “to a senior, who demonstrates the achievement, desire and commitment to be a future leader.” This year’s award goes to Katie Ayala. As she cried with joy, I stood there watching her and thinking, ‘We have such great students in our public schools.' Sadly, we only seem to read about the bad ones. Today Katie, you are my front page story as you pursue your pre med degree.

So glad I had an opportunity to thank US Congressman for the First District of Florida (my congressman), Matt Gaetz, for voting in favor of S. 167 National Memorial to Fallen Educators Act. I saw him at an event in my hometown last Saturday. I am currently a candidate for School Board in our area. Linda Evanchyk, NTHF Class of 2010 Ft. Walton Beach, Florida
