#PimpMyBio : Pitch Wars Contestant Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! I’m entering Brenda Drake’s Pitch Wars competition for the first time-- looking for a mentor to work with who will help make my MS shine. Bring on the critiques, really! I want it to sparkle. https://media.giphy.com/media/Sq3tXvzzp51Ic/giphy.gif First, I hate talking about myself. It makes me oddly uncomfortable, but writing about myself is naturally...

2017 Summer Reading: This Summer’s Promise

Ah! It’s summer. I can read. It’s sounds awful to say (and hear) but I don’t read much for pleasure during the school year. It’s difficult enough juggling reading for school, teaching, writing curriculum, planning, grading, writing for me, house stuff, family stuff-- life. Every once in awhile, I’ll indulge myself but only when I... Continue Reading →


Do Not Disturb: I’m an Alligator

When one passion needs to make room for another, one of my mantras is "something's got to give." This has been a very busy school year.

Gratitude means a great deal, I’ve learned over the years. Gratitude and hope. On the periphery, 2016 wasn’t as kind to our nation... Continue Reading →


Election 2016, Confessions of Dispirited Voter:

So I cast my vote in this election. To be honest, after 33 years of being an earnest voter, for this election, I wasn’t sure that I would. I believe in our Constitution; I believe we all have a voice; I believe our voices should be heard. Normally, I’m not afraid to voice my opinions.... Continue Reading →


2016 Summer’s Promise

Each summer, I make a promise to myself: to read the stack of books I've been accumulating throughout the year (the ones I didn't get to because I'm reading or grading for teaching, or writing, or doing mom stuff). I taught two new classes this year and I had a student teacher, so school took... Continue Reading →
