Through social media I have been able to get back in touch with some of my students. I taught them when they were 10 years old and they are now adults. I was so happy to get in touch with a few of them and I am so proud of all they are aspiring to be in their lives, it is just wonderful. After writing back and forth with a couple of my former students I realized how much I miss that time in my life. I was 21 when I started teaching and I taught until I was 28 and had my son. I was a good teacher. I loved my job and it showed. Even though I loved it then, I am not sure there is room in my life now for teaching. Things are different in the world of education now with common core and I am not sure if I could teach that way. I immersed myself in my job, my job was my life. Now things are different, now I have an 8 year old and a 2 year old with Down Syndrome so I couldn’t do a job like that anymore and give my all to it.
We got this cute little play kitchen from Ikea for our daughter for Christmas.  …17 November 2013
