About Me

I am a second-career teacher. In my other life, I crunched numbers as an accountant. Probably would have made a great math teacher had the thought occurred to me. No matter, I'm where I'm supposed to be; teaching third grade. Before that, 2nd grade and before that kindergarten. I have 2 grown daughters, 2 poodles, and 1 hubby. I live and work on Long Island.

the blues

they plan their attack

gather momentum

gain their foothold

creep in through my slumber.

heart heavy


i will not surrender

as they poke holes in my soul

demanding me to solve a solution-less puzzle.


  1. Grrrr... that solution-less puzzle that keeps you awake. May you find something to smile about today. Hang in there!!

  2. Wow....your words speak to me with such clarity. "as the poke holes in my soul" Powerful. Jackie http://familytrove.blogspot.com/
