    One Thousand Gifts

     I recently purchased Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts. I was excited to receive it because the Bloom book club lead by Angie Smith is reading it this month. I love reading new books and hearing how different people interpret them. After opening it and reading a few pages, I wanted to stop. Voskamp’s  writes beautifully, but I […]

    RIP Mr. T.

    The kids knew him as Mr. T.   When I was a young teacher at a brand new school, Mr. T. was one of the teachers who welcomed me.  He was a young teacher with a ‘happy-go-lucky’ attitude and so full of life. I distinctly remember him coming into a room, telling a joke and everyone laughing […]

    Kitchen Boss is a Hit!

    The Cake Boss, Buddy Valstro has another new show called Kitchen Boss.     I know everyone loves the Cake Boss show, except for me. The cakes look nice, but on the show they have shown the cakes being delivered in the box truck without a box or anything covering it. That’s just not unsanitary.Kitchen Boss […]

    Guns Aren’t the Problem

    Whenever the media reports a story in which someone is shot, immediately people blame gun laws (ex. Gabrielle Giffords being shot by Jared Lee Loughner). Yet, if people who believe guns kill people, must believe that pencils misspell words and cars drunk drive without people operating them. It’s not the guns, it’s the people who use them. Even if […]

    Your Outlook

    It doesn’t matter what is going on in your life, your outlook on any situation is what matters.Good people will be good people regardless of any situation. One of my great classes saw me sad today. I was glad that one of them noted, “we’ve never seen you like this, usually you are really happy.” […]
