My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

  • sending your husband off with best wishes for a healthy heart checkup
  • coming to teach in the morning when you reallllyyyy need another hour of sleep
  • teaching your developing readers and writers how to write a kindness note
  • watching them think and encourage and decorate and help each other write notes
  • helping students deliver notes to pleasantly surprised staff members
  • getting messages of love from your family over social media
  • spending dinner with your daughter and laughing over messed up quesadillas
  • browsing at the bookstore, choosing just the right books for the upcoming baby shower
  • warming some milk, chocolate and cinnamon for a delicious hot cocoa
  • writing a slice showing gratitude for a really sweet day
