Fall Fact and Opinions! (Part 1)

November 1, 2015

Happy Fall! I can’t believe it’s already November. I feel like I say that all the time. I don’t know about anyone else, but I feel like August-December are always so busy with one thing after another, that as soon as school starts in August, I’m virtually MIA until Winter Break. I’m really making an […]

Honoring Veterans Day

November 11, 2012

So, I have to be honest. In the past I haven’t taken much time to really discuss Veterans Day. I always asked students what they know about the holiday and why we celebrate it. I am ashamed to admit that I’d often get Veterans Day and Memorial Day confused. Well, not anymore. This past year […]

Happy Halloween

November 1, 2012

Then, with two days off  next week (one for and Institute Day and one for Voting–so not really days “off”) its really throwing a […]
