I included this link because I love memes, and these back to school teacher memes are ON POINT! I think I have a great sense of humor, so don't be shy with your favorite memes and corny jokes. Please feel free to email humorous and SCHOOL APPROPRIATE memes and jokes to me, and see if you can make my day :)
I LOVE water! I like to be by, in, and on the water as much as possible. Water is life sustaining, and here in Oregon we have some of the most beautiful rivers and lakes. Plus, we also have the largest body of water on the planet (which is indeed a sphere) on our western boarder. Because of my love of water and the outdoors, we will spent quite a bit of time learning outside near the water. You may not know a lot about our local watershed yet, but trust me you will :)
I believe in the transformative power of kindness. Life is hard sometimes and a simple act of kindness has the power to relieve some of the stress we endure daily. Being kind does not cost anything, but the rewards are many. Kind acts can be random, thought out well in advance, and hopefully will become habitual with practice. This year I want to up the ante and become a certified Kind Classroom. You can read about it here.
Would a taco by any other name taste as sweet? I say yea unto thee! I believe that the world's most perfect food delivery system is found in the small, yet mighty, taco. Words cannot accurately describe the experience of eating an authentic taco prepared with attention to detail (eg. homemade tortillas) and much love. Simple ingredients, unpretentious even, are assembled into something much larger than the sum of it's parts with the power to move one to tears. That, or maybe the salsa moved me to tears.
Honestly, I love sports that involve hitting and throwing things. Softball, darts, bowling, cornhole, horseshoes, badminton, and freestyle frisbee. This year I did not play softball, but I more than satisfied my hitting and throwing needs with other sports including bowling. FYI: My husband skates and bowls. I can't wait to show him the skate park bowling trick shots in this video!
