I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Classroom & Volleyball

I needed to have a good afternoon with my fourth grade volleyball girls...because today in the classroom left much to be desired.

Mondays are rough, coming off the weekend and all. And I felt prepared...but things just didn't go right, from the SMARTBoard sound not working to the computer going slow (and not allowing me to show videos) to a few other minor things that seemed to add up. We got through it, but it wasn't pretty.

Volleyball, on the other hand, was quite fun. We had practice first, mostly practicing serving and bumping. And then we played - and won! - our first game of the season. The parents have been super supportive so far, and the girls have great attitudes. It is truly a pleasure to be their coach.

So, as far as the classroom goes...here's hoping for a better day tomorrow. :)
