Well, this year has caught me off guard. I imagined that once I graduated from Saint Mary's I'd have a bit more time and I do, but there are also so many new things, both tiring and exciting, that are happening. I am teaching ESOL this year for the first time and a lot of the time I might have dedicated to writing or creating for my website I use to ensure that my lessons are complete and on level with my kids. You can see some of the things I've been working with here. This is a new portion of my site dedicated to ESOL. I am working to add more things including things I've created and adapted. I will likely be offering some things for free on this site and some things on my Teachers Pay Teachers account. I already have one ESOL item there along with a number of Special/Disabled education items and Latin items. Additionally, I am making more time for my personal passions and life this year for my own physical and mental health. I'm spending more time in the garden (complete with a new small greenhouse), making more art, and trying to read more.
Long story short... Here is a quick list of new things you may not have seen and things in progress from me :)
I was incredibly lucky to attend the Roman Daily Life summer seminar through Gustavus Adolphus College. My final project, working with Micheal Posey, started as a musing for original stories and a novella and has become a growing project! Check out what we've got below and you can always access it under my "originals" tab. Click the image below for more information

Well folks, grad school got all my attention from October until now. I am still in school, but have a little more time to work on my own projects. So, here are a few updates since October!
