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

Things Miss Foyle Says...

Years from now, my students may not remember much of what they learned in class (or, maybe they will - I can only hope), but, if they think of me at all, they'll probably remember these oft repeated phrases that have become staples in our classroom:

Unless you're about to throw up, bleeding, or on fire, you may not come speak with me when I'm with a reading group.

The only thing you need to bring to the carpet is your lovely self.

That book is my favorite. Well, that one is too...

Mints are good brain food (for tests).

(while praying Stations of the Cross) Jesus suffered on the cross for three hours; you can stand for 20 minutes.

Doing nothing is not an option.

Nowhere on the board does it say talk to your neighbor.

Anyways, you get the idea. What you say says a lot about you, doesn't it?
