I made it back Tuesday night and went straight back to work while trying to adjust
to the time difference. We had a fabulous short trip and managed to squeeze lots of " touristy" stuff in as well as enjoying Jamison's showcase! The weather was absolutely gorgeous and everyone was very friendly and helpful. My son did a great job in his show and his entire class was phenomenal! We spent a few hours at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and I will plan to spend an entire DAY next time I go. We stayed in Times Square and the energy there is so electric and different from where we live.
I was determined to spend some time in Central Park and was delighted to find it better in every way than I had imagined. It was so well-cared for and sparklingly clean. It truly is an oasis in that crowded city and I would LOVE to have anything close to that here. I am hoping to catch my breath this weekend and get back to posting more often.
I have a degree in Child Development and have been teaching for 25 years. Most of these years have been spent with second graders with the exception of 4 years in first grade. I love introducing my students to the joy of reading "chapter books" and the language of literature.
I am a mixed-media artist and am lucky to be teaching at a fine arts magnet school. I use music and visual art every day in my classroom.
I have been married for 29 years and my husband teaches High School English. I have raised 4 wonderful kids and am still working on the yellow labs that live in our house.
