Hello!

I started playing quiz with GWD at the Maple Leaf Pub. I heard they were in search of quizmasters and decided to audition. I am quite the social butterfly. so I figured: meet new people, free booze, and quiz. What more could a girl ask for?

By day, I am a middle school Industrial Technology Teacher- yes 12-14 year olds and power tools. I'm an Aggie (WHOOP!), a dog lover, and a scorpio. My favorite color is purple and one day I hope to venture to Costa Rica, Italy, and Australia. That's me in a nutshell.

Its been a wonderful almost three years QMing for GWD. Do to a full school load next semester, I am giving up my permanent hosting position. I'm staying on as a sub and will still be playing from time to time, so look for me on the quiz circuit. Y'all have made my time fun and great! I leave you with this fine song:

There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too.
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping up to say, "Cuckoo" (Cuckoo, cuckoo)
Regretfully they tell us but firmly they compel us
To say goodbye to you.

So long, farewell,auf wiedersehen, good night.
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight.
So long, farewell auf wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you.

So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen.
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
"Yes? No."
So long, farewell, au wiedersehen, goodbye

I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone to bed and so must I

So long, farewell, au wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye!

Thanks for coming out!
See y'all around :)

Christmas is coming fast upon us. The holiday season is here. In fact, we only have one more quiz left this year!!! I guess this is as good a time as any to announce that next week will be my last quiz as your permanent Quizmaster. I am taking even more classes next semester and between a full time job, full time student, and a part time QM job, something had to give. Don't worry, you'll still see me around the quiz circuit as a sub QM and a quizzer.

Tonight's quiz gave us apples, long instrument solos, fucked up novel synopsis, funeral scenes, that one trailer, TV themes, and some other shit in Random Knowledge.

In the end, QMMF won. I love how people think just because a team of QM's are playing that they know the answers. No, in fact we are the most cutthroat about not cheating and proving we are smarter than you. We are smart folks here at GWD. Also, GEEK BOWL TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE!!!

Thanks for coming out!

See y'all next Thursday :)

I did an extra credit project for my Psychology class that y'all might find interesting. Here ya go:

For my study, I went with an idea that was formed my first time going through college. For an Educational Psychology class, we had a group project where you had to debate one side of an issue. The group I was assigned to debate the positives of spanking. We thought it would be a great experience to visit a prison and interview inmates on whether or not they were spanked as children, but we never had the opportunity. I have carried this idea into my classroom and surveyed students on whether or not they are or have been spanked as punishment and how this relates to the number of office referrals the students have received.
I was raised under the old adage “Spare the rod, spoil the child”. My hypothesis is that students who have been punished by spankings will have a lower average of office referrals.
For my study, I conducted a survey among the students in my classes. I told them it was purely voluntary, anonymous, and had no affiliation to my class. They filled out the survey any turned it into a box on my desk. I then collected the data, entered it into a spreadsheet, and came up with student spanking/referral averages. 
After gathering the data, I averaged number of referrals per student with and without spanking, I found my hypothesis to be false. Out of 52 students, 35 have been spanked meaning 67% have been spanked and 33% have not. The average amount of referrals per student who had been spanked was 3.34 whereas those who had not been spanked only had 1.76 referrals. This means that students who have been spanked earned 1.58 more referrals than those who have not.
There are many variables that affect the correctness of my study. My students are predominantly Hispanic males from low SES families. More diversity between subjects could have caused different results.  I also removed the data of the students that wrote “I don’t know” or “a lot” under the amount of referrals which could have changed the data. We also don’t know the home life of these children in this manner of study. They could be children who rarely get in trouble so there is no need for strict punishment, children that get in trouble often constituting multiple punishments and referrals, or even just the personality type of child who would volunteer for a study without knowing why. 

Meanwhile in quiz, we had elements, lost religion, Spiders and men, Borderlands, Child prodigies, bossy folks, meh movies, and of course Random Knowledge. In the end Florida Can't Even Get Orion Off won the game. Kudos to you!

Thanks for coming out!

See y'all next Thursday :)
