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

March Madness is Here!

...and it's not just all about basketball - in our 6th grade classroom, it's all about the books:

I cannot take credit for the whole book bracket thing (as I told a co-worker, it's all over Pinterest), but whoever originally thought it up had a seriously great idea. Not only has it gotten the attention of the 6th graders (including ones who don't necessarily like to read), but it's also made the 7th and 8th grade boys (and some girls) start talking too.

March Madness is awesome - books and basketball alike!
