Virginia is for lovers...

This weekend Hector and I are celebrating our first wedding anniversary! We are both extremely excited to go on our excursion in Virginia. We are going on a three day mini vacation. This Saturday we are getting up extremely early to go to Middleburg, VA to spend the day visiting around. That same night we are going to be going to a bed and breakfast near Washington, VA. Who knew there was a Washington in Virginia?!? It's our first bed and breakfast and we are both excited! I will be posting pictures of all of this next week. On Sunday night we are going to a very fancy restaurant and having an 8 course meal. I can't wait! I still can't believe that we've been married for a year already. Boy does time fly by! Here's to another year!!!

Inspirational and influential

This school year I work with the best group of teachers and administration that any teacher would hope for. They work relentlessly and never give up. A lot of our students are broken and do not want to learn but my colleagues continue to reach out to them and work hard to educate them. A student can be driving them nuts and yet they refuse to give up on them. They keep trying to figure out ways to help the student. These teachers are taking extreme measures to ensure that the student can learn. Some give teddy bears to students to let them vent and others come up with unbelievable intervention plans. The teachers are not afraid to ask for help and the administration is willing to do whatever it takes to help us out.

We also have lots of fun together as a group! We go to happy hours.(That's including the administration!) We dance thriller on our Professional Development day. We go bowling and come up with tools for turn around schools. We work as a team and are very united when we go through rough patches.

I am proud to say that I work in a turn around school! We will close the achievement gap at our school in five years! I believe in us!
You would be lucky to have one of these teachers teach your child!
