What is really happening in schools around the world? How many are being attacked? Why do people attack schools? If you want to understand the true nobility of teaching -- see this article. We are viewed as symbols of progress and community leadership. Attack us and you attack a community. It is heartbreaking but also at the same time, cognizant of the true leadership of teachers in our world today.

Immediately responding to your email makes you worse at your job! Researchers recently coined a term for this urge to immediately respond to emails and engage in obsessive thoughts about returning an email to one's boss, colleagues or clients: "workplace telepressure." They found that telepressure is not only a major cause of stress at work, it's also a health hazard. The research, which will be published in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, found that a fixation on work email can contribute to physical and mental burnout.

While gmail has added some encryption features, it isn't really enough of anything. ProtonMail was recommended by a recent Forbes article for having the highest level of security of any email service. If you need to send bank draft information, w-9's or other information, it makes sense to have one of these accounts. They simply charge for extra storage.

The Teach 100 is a ranking of top blogs in education. Many great blogs on this list - many are group blogs but there are also some single blogs (like me). Excited to be on the list, especially with recently moving my blog - many lists like this I had to start completely over. Lots of great sites here.

Would be great to see some of our mobile technology companies in education win some of these awards. We've seen some great inroads of late. (Kahoot and Socrative are two of a few I can think of as well as some of the scanning apps, etc.)

This important excerpt of a larger book hits on the quality of teachers and the success of children in low-income schools. If you want a better school, spend money on staff development and helping your teachers become more proficient. This article is full of research and important topics of conversation among teachers and policy makers.

This powerful infographic shows why it is so hard to find some black boxes in the ocean but also shows the complete and utter power of an infographic. The Washington Post made this one about the downed Korean airliner and the quest to find the black box. Some don't know why it is so hard -- take a dive through this infographic and start to understand. Wow.

As we near Teacher Appreciation Week (May 5-9), nonprofit AdoptAClassroom.org is reaching out to educators nationwide to help both local teachers and beyond who are spending out-of-pocket on classroom materials necessary for success.

With more than 15 million students coming from families who cannot provide the resources needed to succeed in school, many teachers pay as much as $1,000 annually out-of-pocket for the most basic of classroom materials.

For Teacher Appreciation Week, AdoptAClassroom.org is reaching out to outlets like Cool Cat Teacher blog to help end teacher-funded classrooms for educators who are in need and for those who would like to donate to a teacher in their area.

Through AdoptAClassroom.org, 100 percent of donations go directly to the teacher to purchase classroom supplies from the more than 20 vendors registered on our website.

We encourage all to register their own classroom by clicking here. And for those looking to help one of their peers, the following are instructions to do so:
1. Go to AdoptAClassroom.org and select “Search” at the top of the page.
2. Search for a teacher by name, community, or school, or select one of the featured teachers to donate to.
3. Once you have selected your teacher to support, choose the amount, create a login, which will remain live for future donations, and process your donation!

To date, AdoptAClassroom.org has raised more than $20 million, serving more than 138,000 teachers. Much of these funds go to the most basic of needs, like pencils, paper, books, learning aids and crayons.

Please let me know if you would have interest in learning more about AdoptAClassroom.org and its mission to end teacher-funded classrooms. Whether it is through social channels or your publication, any added awareness of our goal would be greatly appreciated!
