November Currently

I've been in rut when it comes to blogging, but linking up with Farley is the PERFECT pick me up!

Listening- My hubby just bought a new Dizzy Gillespie album, which if you love jazz will not disappoint! This has to be one of the best big bands ever assembled. 

Loving - THE WEATHER! I went on a beautiful and long walk with my puppy today and it was simply gorgeous outside. 

Thinking - I lost a student. My second of the year, and third in the last two years. My heart is heavy. I am praying for the families of my students. Sleep in perfect peace Andrew, Ron, and now Demantrae. 

Needing- Given how difficult this week has been, I need a break! We'll be going to Ohio for a Thanksgiving, and I've been doing a ton of reflecting on all the things I am grateful for. 

Reading When I need to cope with the *trials of life*, I read. I am currently reading the book Courageous Conversations About Race with my team AND planning a new blog series about various topics from the book #staytuned 


  1. So sorry to hear about your student. That is horrible. I can't imagine how hard it is for you and the school community- not to mention, his family and loved ones.

  2. I am so very sorry to hear about your student. I can't even imagine how hard that must be.
    Enjoy your beautiful weather.

  3. I am sorry for your losses. I cannot even fathom how that must feel and would never wish that upon any teacher. Enjoy your weather and your trip for Thanksgiving. We truly are blessed beyond measure!

  4. Keep your chin up! You are doing a fabulous job! I want you to know I nominated you for the Liebster Award. Check out my blog here to gain information about it. (This is not spam or anything like that... it's for new bloggers.)
