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

I visited my sister's classroom today. And, though crazy at times, it made me miss teaching elementary school.

[Don't get me wrong, I very much enjoy teaching religion to middle schoolers, but younger kids just bring a different energy (and randomness).]

I enjoyed the variety of activities in each subject, and in Math, I got to teach a small group. *Teacher Nerd Alert!* Even the older students were doing double takes, and students from previous years called me "Miss Kelly" when I saw them. I'm very glad I was invited to 2nd grade.

And, at my sister's urging, I brought Olaf. See for yourself the adventures he had:

Just chilling on spring break...

The many faces of Olaf

Definitely a Catholic School supporter

Amid the many stuffed animals of 2nd grade

sight word Jenga (way to use the nose!)

"Student of the Day"

Only one more day of spring break to go...I hope to make it count by taking it easy...and by finishing my lesson plans.
