Hello!  I know I have been a stranger for sometime. Now it is time that I turn away from other responsibilities and give this blog a bit of attention! Returning to my own classroom for the first time in a few years, took most of my attention. The first few months I stayed later and … Continue reading

Balancing Act

It’s been so long since I wrote a new post. It isn’t that I have forgotten about the value of the blog, it’s just been put on the shelf for a bit. Last spring, I packed up twenty-five years of teaching into cardboard boxes. Our building, the only building where I had taught elementary students, … Continue reading

Tale of the 2e Book

Forgive me readers…it has been more than a few weeks since my last post. I was bogged down with quite a cough and I was burning the candle at both ends trying to finish my book. Yes, my book. Some of you may not have heard that I am writing a book for Gifted Homeschoolers … Continue reading

I Continue

I’m here today. It’s been too long since I’ve sat down to do this, but I’m determine to post something today before we slide past jack-o-lanterns and candy corn and are met with thankfulness and turkey. During the hardest days, before understanding 2e and making the decision to homeschool, there were weeks where I blogged … Continue reading

I Was Learning

I did something this weekend that was just for me. Actually, I’m hoping that it will help my family too…but I did this for me. For twenty-plus years, I’ve shared the importance of life-long learning to children. I’ve told my students to challenge themselves and keep gaining information. Everyone says this, but do they do … Continue reading

Three Years Now

Three years ago, I wrote my first blog post. I didn’t really know what I was doing. I wasn’t sure that anyone but friends and relatives would read it, but I needed a way to vent all of those emotions. I hoped that eventually, it would help me find others that were going through the same … Continue reading

Parents are Human…so are Writers

Most of you know that I’m writing a book. I am thrilled that perhaps this will legitimize my ideas or suggestions for people that know me in a smaller way. Just a complaining parent Just a blogger Just a teacher Just a homeschooling mother I hope that the book helps to educate those who have … Continue reading

Schooled by the Universe

Since learning that I would be writing a book about supporting our 2e kids, I’ve been a bit distracted. In addition to my regular life of homeschooling and teaching, I now seek to find quality time for writing. Honestly, I was a bit intimidated by this new opportunity and the reality of it all…until the … Continue reading

Yippee! I’m Writing A Book!

I remember a period in my life when I was desperately searching for answers. Answers that would help us better understand our son. Like most people, he could be described with many adjectives; however, nothing seemed consistent. We read and we tested out other people’s ideas and suggestions, but we were still puzzled. Maybe even … Continue reading

My Interview with Celi Trepanier

This book is officially being released on March 6th and I know it will be a great success and … Continue reading
