An Open Letter to My Students: You Are Loved

TO MY IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE STUDENTS To my immigrant and refugee students, I am a better educator because I have worked with you. You have taught me that there is more to the school day than academics and checking off the standards. Through you, I have learned to respect other cultures, to embrace change and difference, and to test my own perspectives. Through you, I have learned that teaching in the real world is much different than how it was portrayed in my college textbooks. Every learner is different, that I knew. But with each learner bringing their strengths and challenges...

Sometimes, Mommin’ Goes Like…

There are times when I have it all together. I take my crew of 3 to Target and stroll like I’m Princess Kate – Latte in hand, well behaved children in tow, life is grand. Then, there are other times… We get done with gymnastics and I have exactly .7 seconds to grab that last minute grocery item before my off spring turn into satan’s spawn and start witching at every customer within earshot that they are HANGRY and need lunch NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! So sometimes, when at Target, I go for the secret weapon: Popcorn. Haters gonna hate, but on this particular...

I’m a (pretend) gym mom

As a working mom, I’ve been dropping my kid(s) off at their daycare/ school/ preschool for 7 years. During that time I’ve observed all walks of life doing the same as me. The accountant mom, dressed to the nines in her business suit but pairing that suit with white sneakers to avoid scuffs on her heels. The car salesman dad, button shirt and tie, ready to tackle the day. The yoga-clad mother with her tank and work-out pants, anxious to get some sweating in before she has to get to her day of carpools and soccer practice and life as a...

How I turned into a “Home Cookin'” Kind of Mom

I am a full time working mother of three…. You think I have hours to spend over boiling pots and meat thermometers?? HECK, NO. I don’t even own a meat thermometer. My style of cooking has always been to rotate between store bought taco shells, frozen pizza and hot dogs. Hey, I’m technically cooking each of these things, so I AM a home cook. Right?? Then, one day, I gave birth to my beautiful little allergy baby. The one whose system is far too precious for the likes of eggs or dairy. I remember going to Whole Foods for the first time...
