Some people make a big fuss about splitting infinitives, but most experts do not. As long as the meaning of your sentence doesn’t change depending on where you place the adverb, you’re fine.
But because many teachers still think they are incorrect, put the adverb after “to” and the “verb.” Since you won’t be able to change your teacher’s mind, your best move is to do what he or she says (until you move on from that class).
(Spock doesn’t seem amused that we just busted an age-old grammar myth.)

Before the explanation part of this post, I need to say this so it will be in posts that are shortened by a reblog: More than anything I ask that you reblog this post so that

As the new school year approaches,
we are obviously in denialteachers are mentally figuring out what materials we need for the school year, what will be provided by the school or families, and what we will buy with our own money as we shop sales (if it is in our budget). Several members of our #education community on tumblr dealt with unexpected family deaths, weather disasters, or more happy (but expensive) life achievements like getting married or having a baby. Our pockets have been hit hard, and I think you’d be surprised how much of our own money we spend on classrooms each year.
Many of us teach in areas where our students’ families cannot help with school supplies. In fact, as I began working on this project, every teacher I contacted to include that came from a more affluent community declined being included so that classrooms in greater need could be helped. I am in awe of the teachers in this community. After the jump is a list of teachers and their classroom wish lists for the upcoming year. If you are able to, please consider supporting a teacher via their wishlist. If you’d rather make a donation to their supply fund or send a gift card, I’m sure you could contact them and they wouldn’t turn you down.
So after the jump are the blogs and corresponding wishlists from Tumblr’s teachers — most of the educators on this list I have personally interacted with and know them to be dedicated to their students.
Teachers helping teachers. Click the read more link to see the wishlists
