I am…

Inspired by Alanna Parker’s slice and her sentence stems to help spark my writing!

I am a teacher with a blended classroom of third and fourth graders this year.  It’s been a hard year, but looping with my students has had its perks!

I keep birthday cards from year to year, small notes from students, and letters from friends in a drawer in my room, ready to walk down memory lane.

I wish I could return to Kenya and teach there again, experiencing all the joys and challenges of life in Africa.

I love curling up with a hot cup of coffee, a warm blanket, and a good historical fiction book.

I think about all of the changes in education recently and the situations my students face at home, wishing I could wave a magic wand and fix all of the problems.

I really need to increase my training miles for my half-marathon in May; getting up earlier is worth it as soon as the crisp morning air hits my face.

I need to finish addressing my wedding invitations and send those in the mail.

I should clean the painting supplies from the middle of the kitchen floor so that we can lay the wood laminate flooring this weekend.

I can make a difference, even when it seems hopeless some days.

I make my lunch every morning, packing the same four items: an apple, cheese stick, 3 pieces of turkey, and a LaraBar.

I always remind myself to breathe in the midst of frustrations, allowing my anxieties to settle and my mind to clear.
