My thoughts and prayers go out to each and every family touched by today's tragedy in Connecticut.
There are no words to describe the grief that they are experiencing, or the sadness left in any of their hearts.

My eyes keep welling up at the thought...I am grateful for each day that I have with my students and my gratitude has been compounded after today.

Sending love and prayers to Connecticut.

A Teacher's Brain Never Sleeps

So as I sit her, mostly conscious, on a Saturday morning....I find myself having to run through all of the things I need to do this weekend. What strikes me is that most weekends include a longer list of school-related project than anything else.
However, amidst all of the report cards to fill out and the weekly selection tests to finish grading, occasionally you find some gems to get you through to the next one.
