Education

Writing for our students can be extremely hard! Teaching our students to write, however, is even more difficult.

In today’s world of distance learning, there are bigger challenges yet than what we already deal with in the classroom!

And for our younger students, our aim is to have them do more interactive practices rather than solely pencil-to-paper actions and activities.

I’ve created this blog to give tips and ideas for all of the issues above! I have created some resources for our teachers and I’m using Common Core Standards to create curriculums to help teach our students, whether online or in person!

Hope

We live in a hurting and broken world. No matter which direction we look, there is always something going wrong.

2020 has been a banner year for, “If it can go wrong, it will go wrong.” It’s hard to grab on to hope when everything around us seems to be broken and just plain wrong.

It’s my aim to breathe a little hope back into the world, especially for our teens and tweens who are already dealing with so much.

I hope that even if you’re not quite sure about what I’m saying, that you’ll give me a chance!

Talk to me! 😊

If you have, I want you to know you are not alone in this. I’m not going to sit here and tell you thatContinue reading “Hope :: Feeling Shattered”
  • Hope :: Overcoming Fear
    This is not a message on exposure therapy. I don’t care how many people tell me about it, I will NOT subject myself to being surrounded by spiders in order to overcome that particular fear. Instead, this post is about my own journey and overcoming some of my fears, specifically about my future. I don’tContinue reading “Hope :: Overcoming Fear”
