Time Marches On, Ocean Park, Expat Bonding, Gym Update days 19.20.21.22


dreary March days making me nostalgic for sweet puppy faces. It's March? Really?! Already? What gave you the right, 2019. I’m not ready for this. I’m not ready for this weird, filler kind of month, with one measly holiday and... Continue Reading →

RinR: Week Without Walls


If I were to change careers (something I think all teachers consider every Monday morning), at the top of the list would be "Karaoke DJ." Beekeeper, baby goat cuddler, and sloth handler are also on the list. But karaoke is something... Continue Reading →

You might have notice a flurry of photos frolicking afross my facebook dash last feek. It was "Week Without Walls" at my school, where someone who probably has never had to chaperone a field trip decided that Kinder-2nd graders should totally go on field trips for four consecutive days and then top it off with a sleepover at school.
