It has happened.  

I have become what I have been avoiding for almost 14 years.  I have dodged it, squeezed out of it, boldly said no, but it has finally succumbed me.  Still, I rebel and refuse to let it overcome me.  

What, you ask yourself, ha...

Dear Readers,

Writing this piece has been a time of remembrance for me.  I hope "The 'Good' Grief Club" helps others to find peace in their own grieving process.  I have struggled to write this since its beginning on February 18, 2019.  Not that I didn't write most days...

Just this morning while walking into a school to substitute, juggling my teaching bag, a coffee mug, water bottle, and my dress shoes, a young boy of about 9 ran ahead of me, opened the door and held it open for me to pass.  I was so thankful, because I wasn't sure how...

Yes, I have been MIA on my blog for a few months.  Okay, so six months is almost a few, right?  Just where have I been?  Let me tell you!  It's mind-blowing!  It's exciting!  It's..it's work.  Just plain work.  Nothing special.  Maybe the amount of work is something: b...

I wrote this article on April 23, but needed to let it sit and marinate.  It was a hard article to initially write, but now I feel more comfortable sharing it.  Maybe my experiences will help another parent.

My life is crazy busy.  Well, honestly, the busiest times...

At a recent presentation to a group of 4th and 5th graders, students had the opportunity to ask me questions.  The question that blew me away was a one posed by a young man who seemed thrilled to be in the same room, breathing the same air as the person who wrote the b...

Blink.  It's mid-February.  How did that happen?  Just last week it was Christmas morning and yesterday we headed back to school for the long haul until Spring Break.  Or so it seems.

I, for one, have felt every single one of those long weeks-getting...

"Mom, do you have any books I could read?  Like real books, not ebooks," asked my 12 year old daughter.  She knows that I have lots of books on my Kindle, but prefers the feel of a book in her hands.

"Seriously?  You have like 50 newer books on your shelf and you h...

On the way to use my gift certificate from Christmas on a hair cut yesterday, my eight year old son asked me, "Mom, when I'm a teenager, will you be a granny?"

I busted out laughing. Together, we figured out that I would roughly be the age of my sister.
