I want adventure in the great wide somewhere…

Cotswolds countryside

This weekend, we finally went to the movie theater to see Beauty and the Beast. (I’ll leave comparisons of US vs UK movie going experiences for another day.) Beaty and the Beast has always been my favorite Disney animated movie since first seeing it in high school. I even had it on VHS (and have …

Adjusting to an alternate reality

IMG_9512

Since June (2016), I’ve been adjusting to a “new normal” (one of my husband’s favorite expressions).

My husband is from England. He’s been in the US since 1999, and he’s been incredibly home sick for a few years now. …

Lanier STEM Maker Fest is almost here! #edBlogaDay

Our STEM Maker Fest is the day after tomorrow. Today, one of our group of students who has been working on their project for hours and hours during and after school for weeks got everything up and running. They built a robot from the ground up. It’s a tank with a t-shirt canon on it. …

Lanier STEM Maker Fest #edBlogaDay

Our STEM Maker Fest is on Saturday. This weekend, one of my students made this video to encourage students from our feeder middle school to attend. It’s a great video. What’s really cool? She didn’t have to make this awesome video. She decided to make it of her own initiative because she really wants the …
