Yesterday, I read and commented on a post that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and thought it would be fun to try. Inspired by Elisabeth Ellington's post who was inspired by Aggie Kesler, here is my take on Hello there.
I am a rather quiet person. I always have been although people mistake me for bring shy, which is something I am not.
I keep a box of memories in a wood box made from a barn on my dresser. It contains my life with my husband since we began dating, shortly after the death of my mother.
I wish I could have one more day with my mother. I would tell her so many things. But most importantly the profound impact she has had on me as an adult.
I could live unplugged for the rest of my life and be happy. Life slows down dramatically for me when technology is not around.
I love my job. I have found "my place" and will be in this job until I retire.
I dance in my dreams. I don't really have much rhythm, only wished I did.
I sing a lot in the car. I am one of those people who will belt it out when I am alone.
I think that reading and writing should be taught together in upper elementary school. When students see the connection between the two, they see purpose.
I really enjoy running. There is something about it that allows me to think and clear my head.
I need to learn how to relax. I work too hard and never really take time for myself.
I should take it one day at a time instead of worrying about everything that needs to get done.
I can think of ideas quickly. It is one of the things that saved me in school because it definitely wasn't my grades.
I make my grandmother's Italian pasta and meatballs really well. It is the only thing that I can really cook.
I always am reflective. I reflect on everything I do, especially teaching.
