2 Teach is 2 Touch Lives 4 Ever!

So as many of you know, I went from teaching 6th grade to teaching a 3rd grade ELD class at a new school. I absolutely love my new school. The people there are simply amazing and super friendly. The best part is that I went from sitting in a 3 hour staff meeting to only having a 30 minute staff meeting. Woo Hoo for short & to the point meetings!!! Keep Reading

Help!! Ayuda!!

So I am sitting in the living room and I hear Jessica in her normal voice say “Help”. I didn’t think anything about it. Then I hear her say “Ayuda”, also in her normal voice. I just thought she was practicing her Spanish as I have heard her do in the past. Anyhow… I then start hearing… “Help me, Ayuda me, Help me, Ayuda me, Help me, Ayuda me”. By the 3rd time she was screaming… “HELP ME!!!! AYUDAME!!!” So I jump off the couch to go see what was the matter. Of course.. instead of immediately helping her.. I decided to take a picture…

Ha ha!!! She had climbed on the pantry shelves to look for hot Cheetos & got stuck and didn’t know how to get back down. A part of me feels bad that I laugh at this.. but then again.. it was dang funny!
