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

Summer's Here!

Wednesday was the last day of the school year...for the kiddos. (We teachers still have work to do with a few meetings and cleaning of our classrooms over the next two days.)

It's been a good year, but it's also been one of those years that really takes a lot out of you. I truly believe and hope that the challenges I faced this year have made me a better, more understanding, more patient teacher. I'm looking forward to some professional development, time on ND's campus, and R&R with my family this summer so that I'll come back in August refreshed and eager to take on year 8!

Here are a few photos I'll leave you with this morning:

The squirrel worked so hard to get the apple core up the tree...

But then he dropped it...again...

Flowers from my student

The sure way to a teacher's heart = books + coffee

...and candy...and cute dog cards

Looking forward to enjoying these treats!

Beach, anyone?

student's artwork turned into greeting cards - beautiful!

Love the creativity - she personalized the style of the letter for each teacher's subject area!

Handwritten notes FTW
