Veterans Day and My Father

As I reflect on everyone wishing veterans all the best today, I can’t help but think of the lost era of veterans like my father. My father served his country at a time when it wasn’t the “honorable” or “popular” thing to do. My father was drafted to serve in the Vietnam War. He went …

Fireball at the Waterfire Arts Center!

It’s not often that I post about something that isn’t education-related. Last night, I had the opportunity to attend the Fireball at the Waterfire Arts Center in Providence. My husband is an architect and has been renovating a large warehouse building formerly owned by US Rubber. It has been completely transformed into the new Waterfire …

MHS Curriculum Night POSTPONED

Please be aware that tonight’s MHS Curriculum Night has been postponed. A new night will be announced ASAP. We will have our Entrepreneurship clearance event at that time!

Never forget.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 16 years since our nation’s most shocking tragedy. It’s even harder for me when I look out at my students today and realize that so many of them weren’t even alive when 9/11 happened. It is just another historical event to them. Talking to them about 9/11 is …

We made it!

The first week of school has come to a close and I’m still standing, quite literally! My classes have been awesome so far. It’s been great reconnecting with students from last year and seeing all of the new faces in my classroom for this semester. Overall, I think we’re back into the swing of things. …

Happy back to school week!

It’s Labor Day, the symbolic end of summer and beginning of the school year. It also marks the end of my medical leave. I haven’t taught since May 12th. I walked out of school that afternoon not knowing that I wouldn’t return for nearly 4 months. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I’ll be …

The August Report

August has been a symbolic month. First and foremost, I started to walk again! This was after 3 months of being off my feet and reliant on my scooter. Walking has been a huge accomplishment on its own. I started bearing weight with my crutches, went down to one crutch, then hobbled around in my walking boot. …

The July Report

As promised, I’m making the most of the rest of my downtime this summer. I tackled some personal and professional goals in the month of July. and still managed to have some fun even though I couldn’t walk or drive. I made a baby blanket for a little boy expected in September! I just love these …

Happy Summer & My Extended Vacation

As we begin the 4th of July weekend, the traditional start of summer, I think about how my “summer” actually got a head start back in May. I decided to write this post to explain my absence from blogging and social media for the better part of May and June . . . and to kick …

Happy vacation!
