Third year of teaching!

I officially finished my third year of teaching!
I still can't believe that it's been three years.
It actually feels like this past school year was like 5 years!
This school year has changed as a person and especially as a teacher.
I've learned so much from myself, my students, and my fellow colleagues.
There were days I didn't know I would make it.
Every day was a hard and challenging day.
I didn't know if my students would learn, or if they would fight each other, or even hit me.
Still I went in with a smile and tried my best to give all my students the opportunity to learn.
I am proud of my students and the hard work most of them did.
My students grew so much in reading and in math.
I am glad it's summer but cannot wait til the next school year!
Here are some last day pictures.

I would have not survived this school year with out you!
Love you guys!

Filippo graduated!!!

I cannot believe my little brother graduated this past month!
It feels like he is still young... but in reality he is 18!
Makes me feel old!
He graduated in June.
He will be going to Towson University this upcoming fall.
We are very proud of him and only wish him the very best!
Here are some picture of the graduation.

My New Garden

Here are some pictures of my new garden.
I am really excited to see if I can do this.
I hate seeing flowers die but I guess they have to die and then bloom.
I tend to give up!
Not this time!!

Before I planted them.

Look a tomato!

It's finally time for the beach!

Yesterday I went to the Rohoboth beach with Hector, my dad, Eva, and Jose.
We started our adventure at 7:30 am.
We stopped for breakfast and then continued to the beach.
It was a little chilly at first but then it got nice and hot.
Hector and I bought an umbrella the night before so I was able to sit in the shade if I ever felt too hot.
It was a lot of fun.
They played soccer and Badminton.
I read a book on my kindle.
We ate burger and hotdogs.
Just when I thought I might try to get into the water... I heard people talking about dead fish.
Yup... Dead fish! YUCK!
There were hundreds of dead fish washing onto the shore.
It was pretty gross.
No one seemed to know what was happening.
Hector and I decided to walk along the shore to explore.
We saw fish with either no tail or no head.
So we figured someone dumped them but were still unsure.
Kids were running around trying to grab them.
Two kids had a shovel and brought a dead fish to their parents.
The parents told them to go put it back...
What did they do?
They decided to dig a hole and bury the fish in their cemetery.
Then we left and drove back home.
On the way home we stopped by a little market and I bought a zinnia flower plant and a tomato plant.
I am really excited to grow them!
Let's just hope they don't die....
Any tips on growing either?
