Find the best authors at THE MIAMI BOOK FAIR

Crowds.  Noise.  Everything that many book lovers usually run from will be swirling around and crackling through the air at the Miami Book Fair in the coming weeks.  The first time I took my kids there, I was slapped with screeching children, tents with more screeching children, loud music, and sometimes happy, mostly angry parents.Continue reading “Find the best authors at THE MIAMI BOOK FAIR”

Halloween Horror shatters school stress.

We sat outside, surrounding our fire pit, and roasting marshmallows on sticks. Each of us listening to the next scary story as if a monster might jump right out of the storyteller’s mouth. It was as simple as that. We forgot the horror of  early morning carpools and catching colds as well as the burdenContinue reading “Halloween Horror shatters school stress.”

5 Best Ways to Help Teens Survive School Anxiety

Between getting up before the sun even rises and just thinking about homework, all teenagers feel at least a tinge of anxiety when the school year begins.

Stimulating the Summer Brain: For parents who are watching their children drool over their devices.

Heavy into summer, kids do not want to hear the word “school” let alone the word “read” and do NOT utter the name we do not speak of “HOMEWORK.” So if you’re a parent like me and you’ve begun noticing that there’s no intellectual stimulation other than YouTube and gaming with an occasional excursion toContinue reading “Stimulating the Summer Brain: For parents who are watching their children drool over their devices.”

Changing the way your child thinks about school is already a daunting task, so don’t expect miracles or overnight success. It is school after all. This isn’t a checklist or advice that works on cue. These are segments of living that should be worked into conversations and issues and built upon as you move throughoutContinue reading “How to change the way your child thinks about school.”

The Magnetic Law

Magnet There’s a new law I found out about recently and I’m fascinated by it., sometimes horrified by it. I believe it exists but I’m not sure that I’ve embraced it. The world I live in for the time being. This world of education tends to shout otherwise. We teachers demand that students perform theContinue reading “The Magnetic Law”

The Zika Monster

Everywhere you turn, you hear a buzzing sound–that high-pitched synchronicity peeling through your eardrum deep into the dead of night. That’s me. Every night. Even when there’s nothing really there. I had planned to begin this blog post by focusing solely on education because I’m trying so hard to stick to the just to thatContinue reading “The Zika Monster”

Portraits of Love

Every day. Four eyes hit me with judgment and love. Dark lashes fan the flecks of green and yellow floating in a sea of amber. Love. Striking out of a pool of black. Forgiveness. But, as they grow I forget that they were always doing this. Waves of black and brown frame her face insteadContinue reading “Portraits of Love”

Does money matter for teachers?

People used to ask me, “What do you do?” I’d say, “I’m a Publications Specialist.” Before that I’d say, “I’m an editor, writer, graphic artist, or copy editor.” They’d nod and smile in approval and ask more questions about it. I felt respected. Now, when people ask that question, I say, “I’m a teacher.” TheirContinue reading “Does money matter for teachers?”
