Providence Half-Marathon Race Recap!


Life, Running

Hi Friends:) So I already gushed about this in Monday’s post, but I wanted to dive a little further into the wonderful day I had at the Providence Marathon and Half Marathon this past Sunday. As usual, I took almost no pictures all day because I am a low-key failure at this whole blogging thing […]

HALF Marathon Training Monday + My Race Calendar:)


Life, Running

Hi Friends,   So I took a bit of a social media-detox this past week and thus have no pictures from my workouts to offer you. I needed it, though; I’d been fundraising since october, and that project required constant social media upkeep. It was such a joy to just move my body without having […]

Teacher Tuesday: 12 Lessons That Can’t Be Taught


Life

Hi Friends:) As I discussed in yesterday’s post, last week was a crazy week at work. Something about coming back from a vacation the same week as a full moon that caused many, many of my students to make some really poor choices. Kids make mistakes. Thats how we all learn, right? By trying and […]

Life

Teacher Tuesday: The Fidget Guide


Life

Hi Friends:) I skipped over my “this week in workouts” post because I spent half of last week battling a nasty virus and getting as much rest as my body requested. Which was a whole lot.

Teacher Tuesday: High School Resource Room Tour!!


Life, Reading

Hi Friends:) Some weeks I make a home cooked meal for dinner every night and spend my evenings composing well-written posts for you all to enjoy. Other weeks I have hummus for dinner for three nights in a row and barely post my “Teacher Tuesday” before the clock switches to Wednesday. Balance is the name […]

Teacher Tuesday: Surviving the Start of Year Crunch


Life

Hi Friends:) It has been way too long since I sat down and wrote a post on here! As soon as I scheduled my last post about my fitness history, see, I got an email from my supervisor. Being a special education teacher is challenging for a lot of reasons. One very annoying reason is […]

Teacher Tuesday! Why We Assign Summer Reading


Life, Reading

Hi Friends:) I haven’t written a Teacher Tuesday in a while, so I figured for my comeback edition, I’d talk a little about one of my personal favorite things: READING! Firstly, I like to let people know that my experience learning to read was not a smooth one. First grade came and went and I […]
