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

Hello, sweet friends! I hope that everyone is doing well!  It has been an insanely ridiculous amount of time since I have last updated this little blog of mine, but first we moved and then it took Verizon 138945309 years to install our internet.  (To be perfectly honest, we still don’t have internet.  I’m staying… Continue reading Hey, there!
