Christmas Love Story

Santa’s coming to Town! Naughty or nice? I think he goofed on his list this year. I ended up on the naughty column, not sure I’ll ever know why. Kept thinking there’s a lesson in here somewhere. Haven’t found it yet. But small miracles and twinkles, oh yes! Toss in some glitter and wrap paper, […]

EVERYBODY COOKS RICE!

Everybody Cooks Rice Learning To Cook Together I AM WRITING THIS TONIGHT FROM MY HEART. It’s World Kindness Day today! Recent events caused me to lose my faith for a bit. It wasn’t just about who won or didn’t win the Election, but the level of hate spewing throughout and continuing. I worry about the […]

Thank You and Goodbye…

Last Thursday was the end of a mini-era. It was my last day as principal of Brookfield Elementary School, a K-8 out of district placement for students with behavioral and emotional difficulties. In 8 years as an educator, I have worked in 4 different schools. Each departure from a school has been difficult emotionally for […]
