Maybe this means I am growing up. This last 3 months has been a whirlwind of; Every cold and version of the flue a small … Read More
Terrible Horrible No-Good Very Bad Week
Have you ever had ” one of those days “, where you are on top of the world one minute… and then face down and confused the next?

Bahahahah } The Truth!
I LOVED Every Bit of Teaching! I need to start writing down some of the comical moments that showed my students I was human and the ones that we will all remember for years to come.

Bent over busy loading dishwasher I direct her to bring her dish to sink… instead, she brings the … Read More
