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.

Right now I am….

  • waiting for the dishwasher repairman
  •  worrying about the upcoming state ela tests this week
  •  looking forward to a trip to Venice with my husband
  •  watching a bluejay sip from a puddle in my yard
  •  drinking my second cup of coffee
  • not knowing that the phone call I am about to answer will be a solicitor’s call
  •  hoping my daughter will call and tell me she had a great time on a date
  •  wondering if my puppy needs to go outside since he doesn’t yet have a signal to let me know
  • praising Leo for doing his business outside and not on the rug
  • happy about dinner tonight with old friends
  •  planning what I will wear to dinner
  •  writing this next-to-last March SOL
  •  thinking about getting ready to start my day away from this laptop
  • texting my sister and my other daughter
  •  thankful  for Terje and Stacey  and the inspiration this morning

  2. So many wonderful things happening at one time!

  3. Oh, I love the format! A trip to Venice sounds so relaxing! And i love how a mom never stops worrying. Only moms. ENjoy!
