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

The digital age

The time has come to join the digital/connected/always-on-the-go world...

I bought an iPad (mini).

Yep, it's gonna be an adventure.

(I haven't taken it out of the box yet...but I did skim over most of the online instruction manual. Plus, I don't have a case yet, so I don't want to risk any scratches...)

I'm hoping it will turn out to be a good investment as far as finally motivating myself to learn Spanish (Duolingo), read on the go (Nook App), and take more photos (even in the classroom).

I can finally tell my students that I have joined the digital age!...After seeing my phone the other day, a student remarked, "Miss Foyle, can we PLEASE (emphasis NOT added) all contribute to buy you a new phone. You have slide yours to open it. They don't make those anymore..."

Oh geez...
