One nice discovery from my cell phone free agency process was to find out that teachers get monthly discounts on their cell phone plans. I cannot believe that I have taught for 11 years (5 private, 6 public) and have been paying full price for all of them! Perhaps, I am the last one to find out, but if not, here's the deal:

I would store them both on my home computer and on a portable flash drive to take to and from school. Thankfully, I never experienced a loss of the small and potentially elusive thumb drive, but I have begun to think about alternative arrangements, especially as my access to the Internet has become so widespread.
Those with an iPhone don't know how good you have it when it comes to to-do list apps. When I had my iPhone, I installed and tested several applications that synced with my to-do list of choice, Toodledo . From a native app ( Toodledo ) to the visually appealing 2Do , to my eventual favorite, Todo , these were just a few of a plethora of applications designed to keep you on top of your lists. Cross over to the Android platform, and the pickings are much slimmer. With no native app available, I have experimented with several noble attempts, but none have come close to producing a simple, elegant, and efficient interface capable of helping me keep track of my to-dos while on the move. That all changed when I found DGT GTD .
