Today was my first real day as the Library Media Specialist at an elementary school. Two weeks ago, I started a bit early because the librarian I was to be covering for went into labor early. Then we went on break and today was my first day. Today was also the first time I ever … Continue reading Week 1 Day 1: Imposter Syndrome
I know, I neglected this blog since leaving Culver, and I haven't shared about the amazing things that have happened since. From attending Tufts University and finding the most amazing school to work at, to finding a church and a fellowship community that has changed my life. I hope to write more, I hope to … Continue reading Haven’t written in a while!
There are two types of people in this world. Those who eat to live and those who live to eat. I live to eat (which is pretty evident based on my physical appearance and other attributes), and since I started going to college, I've also dabbled in cooking. Some context: my parents both love to … Continue reading Cooking Adventures! (1) Butter & Soy Sauce
Wow, I feel bad for not updating this blog for a long time. I guess, on the one hand it's good that I'm busy in both school and my classes (school meaning student teaching versus classes meaning Tufts). On the other, I did hope to write more and be consistent with my writing. Every week … Continue reading Week 5-7: It’s been a while…

Some are from my classes and the readings that I've been engaging in, but also just the experiences I've had in the classroom. I want to … Continue reading Hidden Curriculum (1): Things I’ve Learned/Experienced So Far

Linz is known for it's steel production and serves as a key component for Austria's economy.

I don't know if this is going to be a series, like a weekly thing from my last teaching position, or just something that I write when I have the chance. I do know that if my first week was any indication of how it will be for the future, then I'm always going to … Continue reading Week of 9/3 (First Days of Schools)
Today officially marks my eighth day in Boston. This post is not so much of introspective deep contemplation but rather just rambling and a collection of thoughts. I don't know why but I feel it's appropriate in some form to express some thoughts as I actually begin classes and even begin going to my school … Continue reading T-Minus Day 1
Our boat left Vienna (finally) at around midnight and we began our cruise to Durnstein, Lower Austria. Durnstein is located in the Wachau River Valley and is known for being one of Austria's most successful wine regions. It's a really beautiful part of the country and I wish we spent more time exploring it. Our … Continue reading Danube Discoveries: Day 6 (Along Lower Austria)
HELLO! I recognize that it's been a while since I wrote something. I apologize, but I have a good reason! I've been getting settled into my new home in Boston. For those who aren't in the know, I'm currently about to embark on a one year Masters program to get a Masters in Teaching as … Continue reading Starting Something New!
