Why “Thirteen Reasons Why” Scares the Hell Out of This Teacher

Some days are so much harder than others. I'm sure you know what I mean. Today, I feel so defeated. Today, the lives and struggles of some of my students are really weighing heavily on me. I want to point out that I have neither read nor watched a single episode of the show¬†Thirteen Reasons... Continue Reading →

How to Start a Bullet Journal

I wrote a post a few weeks ago about my first attempt at bullet journaling¬† (the most avid users call it a bujo but I still refuse). I want to follow up on that post because I've worked on my bullet journal system a bit more and I'm more confident than I was. I've been... Continue Reading →

2017 Reading Challenge Reflections

I posted a few weeks ago about the 2017 Reading Challenge from modernmrsdarcy.com and invited you all to join me in the challenge.

I never had Peyton in one of my English classes, but I am my school's student council sponsor and she was in student council all through high school. She was president her senior year and that's when we really... Continue Reading →

Sh*t Happens

I have never been the kind of person who embarrasses easily. I don't always think before I speak or act and that leads to a lot of situations that would probably be embarrassing for most people - I just tend to let them roll off easily. There have been exceptions, though. And it's taken awhile,... Continue Reading →

Heal the Divide – Learn to Listen

In a country as divided as ours is right now, it's hard to imagine how the rift between political parties could ever be bridged. We see evidence of the division everywhere we look, the news, social media, family gatherings... We live in a digital world. Most of our information is gleaned from online sources. Most...
