  • There is a high of 90 degrees in Louisville today, so it’s hot and humid. But the sun is out, my hair is 😍😍😍😍😍😍, my house is decently straight, and I’m getting ready to spend a girls day with my sister, mom, and two nieces. LIFE is GOOD. #letsgooooo
  • Currently Reading:
⭐️ Restart by Gordon Korman (during testing)
⭐️ Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke (before bed)
⭐️ Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell (as part of my morning routine)

I’m really close to finishing two of them, so I brought all three of them to school today. Maybe I can knock them out as I walk around the room, pause to read for a minute, then walk to the other side of the room. 🙄 Gotta love state testing season.

  • You guys... YOU GUYS... I am overwhelmed with excitement at what the future holds. Spring for me is always a combination of gratitude (thank you sun and warm weather), but also a period of anxiousness as I’m awaiting to find out what the summer and fall hold for me. I am always on the search for the next adventure and the spring is when those pieces start to fall into place.
.

I’ve taken almost a year off of the blog and leading professional learning, but I am BACK and in it to win it. I’m PUMPED to be moving to teaching fourth grade next year and maybe even more excited (maybe?) about all the summer professional learning opportunities I’ve got on the schedule. This is MY KIND OF SUMMER and I’m ready! 💪🏼

If you’re in the area, come see me at the JCPS Deeper Learning Symposium, JCPS Technoversity, and the KyGoDigital regional stop in Louisville!

  • Let’s try this again.... since the first one I posted had a spelling error on the letter board 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

I’ve kind of been all over the place for the last eight years, but I’m excited to start year 9 in fourth grade! I’m pumped to be on a BOMB team (we need team nickname, @trish_cummane), learning a new curriculum, and becoming the best teacher YET!
.
.
Is it too early to start planning for next year when there are still 12 days left in this school year? 🤓

  • I love my job.

  • Today is a special, special day where I get to celebrate all the people that I love most. 
First, Happy Mother’s Day to my own mother, who taught me that I could do anything I wanted as long as I put my mind to it. She has always had the attitude that there’s no problem that can’t be fixed and she is the always the first one asking how she can help. 
Second, Happy Mother’s Day toy beautiful sister who is a learning and growing and doing a fantastic job at one of the hardest roles in the world. I love watching her be a mom, because she’s so good at it. She is patient and thoughtful, fun and understanding.

And finally, Happy 60th Birthday to my dad, who is the best dad and the best Pa I’ve ever seen. He, like Mom, has always taught me to find a solution and stop worrying about the problem. He’s always there for having fun, even if it means letting your daughters paint your nails or playing dinosaurs with a two year for the thousandth time.  I love you all and I’m so lucky I get to call you mine! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
  • I had an amazing day graduating and  spending time with my family. I am so proud of how far I’ve come in accomplishing my goals and it makes me feel better about how far I’ve still left to go.
.
.
Still, when all was said and done, I came home to face my next obstacle and became immediately anxious and overwhelmed.  I hit a mental block and I stayed there for a while.
.
.
I CAN do hard things. I have done them before. I went through college three times. I bought a house, by myself, at 22 years old.  Together, Justin and I have scrounged and saved and paid off thousands in debt.  I CAN do whatever I put my mind to, just like Mom and Dad told me, way back when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. I can accomplish amazing things, I just have to believe in myself.
.
.
I wrote in my #starttodayjournal this morning when I woke up, but I was feeling anxious and overwhelmed, so I did it for a second time just now, before I fall asleep. I love how calm, focused, positive it keeps my mind. I can’t wait to write it in again tomorrow.
