EOY Assessments

Hi, teachers!  It’s been a while.  Getting settled in a new country with two tiny humans is no small feat.  Sometimes I feel like I’m really doing a great job at functioning here, and some days I want to cry and fly home to shop at Target.  I’ve noticed in a few teacher Facebook groups… Continue reading EOY Assessments

A prize for teachers!

Okay, y’all.  I can’t even really properly express how proud I am for actually doing some weeknight blogging. I really think that I’m close to having some more closure on my life for next year, which is making me feel a little more zen.  Tonight I just wanted to share a super exciting treat that… Continue reading A prize for teachers!

I did it!

Hello, friends! We still have one more day of school before spring break, but I wanted to share a quick update.  As I mentioned in this moment of brutal honesty I’ve really been dropping the ball on math instruction for a few months and I vowed to do better.  (A coworker of mine is really fond of… Continue reading I did it!
