I’m beginning to realize that just because one “big thing” or event is over doesn’t mean you can stop and take a breather. Another “big thing” is always right around the corner. This week turned out to be the week of nonstop teaching for me. In addition to the regular…

I went to visit my kindergarten class this morning because they were putting on a patriotic President’s Day program. It was so much fun to see them again and yet it seems like eons ago that I was their teacher. It was weird to think that they have just been…
