Buyer re: Truffala Tree Grows Magically!
I only got one page in the download and there was no directions on how to make the tree with the paper and tube. How can I get what I paid for? Please check your download or give me directions on how to get it.

Hello!

Sorry to hear about this problem. I will contact TPT and get this corrected. For some reason, the only thing you are getting from me is the cover. The whole unit isn't showing up. Others seem to have gotten the whole unit, so I'll immediately check and be sure you get the whole set of directions.

It's really fun, but it takes the directions to do! Again, sorry! Mary Ann Johnson

Oh-oh! Something's gone wrong! I'll check and make sure you get your whole packet! Not sure what happened, but it really is a 4 page lesson. Hope you find it worthwhile. It may be quite useful even after Thanksgiving. I hope it didn't ruin your timing! Mary Ann Johnson

Hi Mary Ann,
I just wanted to let you know how great this project went for all my students. I couldn't believe how engaged they were for three days while they worked on the assignment. Even my more reluctant workers did a great job. I got great feedback from the kids as well. Thank you so much for offering this project. I will definitely have my students do it next year too. Have a great summer.

Hello John,

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell me about your class response to the Final Exam Project. I'm so glad you gave it a try. And I hope this last big project will launch an upbeat summer as well, knowing how much good you did this year! Mary Ann Johnson

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

When there was a need, I was often able to take the assignment, so I have had experience teaching mostly high school social studies, literature and creative writing, remedial math, and even architecture! I taught credit retrieval night high school academy government and current issues classes and gifted social studies students in ninth grade world history. While teaching full time I also taught staff development classes about writing poetry, getting ready for King Tut, social skills, classroom management, best practices, humor for intrinsic motivation and stress reduction, and teaching children of poverty.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Many of my ideas provide for students to work with materials beyond the text, and to generate outcomes that students can be proud of. Lessons give choices to honor student decision-making, and they often involve several layers of complexity. They may start in ways that help avoid procrastination and end with a final outcome that can be shared with peers or a wider audience.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Most of my work has resulted in people returning for more shared experiences or return engagements for live presentations. I am rewarded by having colleagues come back, both for live experiences, and for my materials, which capture the imagination and foster creative thinking for teachers and students.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a BA degree from Central Michigan University, and a M.Ed Adm from the University of Washington. I have taken ongoing post-graduate work in many exciting areas of teaching research and practice, as well as adult development and creativity and motivation theory.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My Northwest Consulting Center in Seattle, Washington is home to many teachers for classes and private briefings. It's a lively center for learning, sharing, and supporting fellow professionals. My interest in motivation theory led me to study and give presentations on the importance of healthy humor for health and productivity. I gave a workshop in England on attracting healthy humor to your life, and created materials on creativity and humor for social studies and creative writing.
