Some might say I am a procrastinator lately with my attention taken from the blog, but I have logical reasons. First, in my full time career, as Curriculum Director, I am responsible for thousands of 3rd-5th graders having everything they need for success so my attention has been very focused in that department. Hurricane Harvey caused delays for several of our schools and therefore I worked to modify the curriculum for them. Additionally, we recently held the first annual training for both reading interventionist and ESL teachers in our district. I had a lot of fun working with those great educators!
Second, and most important, is the work-life balancing act. I wrote a blog post, It's a Balancing Act, Monday Matters, Vol 3, back in July. In education, we sometimes get so busy, we forget about our own necessities. Mine, is my family. We took a recent weekend and did our first ever off-roading and camping adventure - complete with s’mores of course!
Now, we have Isabella, our preemie grand baby. I cannot wait to build memories with her as a part of our family. I was excited I got to see her in New Orleans area after I presented at the Louisiana Reading Association, 2017 Annual Conference in Sulphur the beginning of October. You can visit my Conferences page and see the conferences and training I have provided.
We found out she may get to come home this week - just before Thanksgiving. They live here in Texas, but unfortunately an emergency delivery kept them in New Orleans area.
