Top Ten Teaching Preschool

Taught my last day of preschool today! Two years of fun on Fridays – done! It was like planning a party every week. Plus I got to work with a great group of teachers! Packed up my belongings today and felt a little sad; but also happy to be moving towards entering Elementary teaching again. These two years in preschool taught me a lot… so much so that I thought it might be appropriate to write a list. Here’s my top ten list of what I learned from teaching preschool. 10. Teaching preschool is a workout. I trained for a half marathon this year and I seriously counted teaching preschool...

Pittsburgh Half Marath 2014 Race Report

Phew!  Checking a Half Marathon off my bucket list!  On Sunday I ran the Pittsburgh Half Marathon and became a RUNNER of Steel.  I am adding to that title - With a Titanium Ankle, since I have one of those two and really couldn’t imagine after my break I would ever complete both a Sprint Tri and a Half Marathon!  So if you had ORIF surgery, like me (about 1 year and 8 months ago)…  you can move on to a healthy active life!  Very active for that matter.  Be hopeful!  Just look at that bling!  Isn’t it the coolest!  I am so proud to own it!  I originally decided to...

Importance of music for little ones

When my son was an infant I learned from him that music was important to his growth.  Music calmed him when he was a baby.  As a toddler it helped him control his body and taught him about early learning concepts.  Music was on often as he grew up.  I made playlists that went along with seasons and watched him dance and sing along.  When he was learning letter sounds, numbers, and math concepts I found songs that would support his development in these areas and watched the magic happen.  I knew music was having a positive influence on his cognitive skills such as spatial reasoning and...

My very fast son who can run a 5K in 19 minutes on an 8 mile run with his momma...  He has to double back often but he is a great cheerleader

Less than 2 weeks till my first Half Marathon and probably my last (unless Disney calls me and offers me a full paid trip to come run their half and then there will be another – CALL ME DISNEY!!!  )…  Training for this half marathon has taught me a lot about myself and my body…  First thing I am learning…  my body likes being fat.  Seriously, who can average 20+ miles of running a week plus strength training and aerobics and not loose a single pound…   ME!!!   My husband keeps telling me it is muscle…  but he loves me too much to tell me the truth. ...
