#belikefrida Hispanic Heritage Month

#belikefrida

This year, at my school, we are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month in style. Our slogan (catchphrase) for the month, which we are celebrating during all of October, is “Be Like Frida”.  To be honest, at first, the kids had NO CLUE what we were talking about and they just made fun of Frida for being […]

A double perspective on the world…

This past weekend, we were able to celebrate the wedding of my “cousin” with family on my husband’s Cuban side. The entire event was amazing; we were able to spend such good, quality time with people who we don’t always get to see as often as we’d like. Everything was so much fun…babies everywhere, kids […]

The softer side of “ms. P”…

I reminded my students of the quote above today and they seemed to enjoy it so I decided to share it with you. There is such truth in these words. Related side-note: Also, how funny are teenagers? Just in general, they are ridiculously awesome and equally ridiculous. Today a kid said to me in class, […]

Life design 101… (aka “jumping ship”!)

This week has been my first at a new teaching job. It’s been a true breath of fresh air and an inspiration in every sense of the word. Side note: need some inspiration? Check out children inspire design and the shine project. Ok, back to my story… I had been VERY nervous about basically “jumping […]

“It’s the end of the world as we know it…”

It’s that time of year again! The final countdown! Pardon my overuse of the exclamation mark! REM’s song frantically plays in my head as I frenetically run around in circles… Really though, this full-time teacher-mama can hardly stand herself. Why, you may ask, am I so excited!? Tomorrow is that blissful day known to teachers […]

Meeting your best friend(s)…

Do you remember meeting your best friend(s)?   I giggled as I thought of writing about this because some friends just magically appear in our lives, while we meet others in the funniest (and often times most awkward) situations throughout our lives. Take, for example, my little brother.  He came home from his first day […]

Best spring break ever? Yup.

This may go down in the charts as the best spring break ever! A whole day of relaxation has been quite successful and a trip to the park (x2) doesn’t hurt. Plans for our break include massive amounts of stroller-ing and swinging, trips to Starbucks, a picnic to feed some ducks, lunch out on the […]

A “spectrum of goodness”…

Over coffee this morning, my friend (Mamicomio’s writer) and I discussed how our kids will probably turn out ok as long as we love them and give them the basics (structure, decent role models, etc.).  Too often, parents are anxious and paranoid about how their children will turn out, worrying that they are not providing […]
