S/O to my great bus driver Lenny for picking me up at 6:40am SHARP! He has been driving me to Burncoat High School since I was a sophomore, he’s very kind and we love to talk about sports.


For the first time this semester there was some sunlight as I entered the historic Burncoat High School! Of course it would not be Burncoat without my TEP partner in crime Jailene Muñoz. We have lunch together almost everyday and we cheer one another on throughout our long days.


Nothing screams Monday like a fire drill!! Everyone is safe, we just had a small problem with the heating system. During our fire drill one of my students gave me a bookmark that he made himself. Liam, is very productive in class and always has a fun comment about the material. After years of theoretically advocating for inclusion in the classroom, I finally get to experience all of the hard work that it takes. Students like Liam make every single one of my essays worthwhile.


We visited, ThornDyke Road Elementary School. I got to observe Ms. Suarez, Jailene, and their students deliver a Spanish lesson to 6th graders. They had so much fun, the students were very interactive and the high school students did a great job with their lessons.


Prep time consist of organizing my desk and making worksheets for my lessons. I also take this time to implement some reflective practice and talk to Mr. Davis about what I feel went really well and what needs to be improved during my lessons.

                                             We had a Principals meeting today.





A crazy salad for dinner + being completely defeated!
