When I get books in the mail, I read them to my kiddos to see what they get from the book and if they love it. This book, Seraphina Does Everything, written by Melissa Gratias, was a book that my youngest truly enjoyed. This book is about a little girl who doesn’t want to miss out on anything so she stacks her plate full of every activity she can and begins to burn out. She realizes that is she unhappy. She then talks to her father who helps her figure out what should be on her plate and what she needs to let go of. My youngest said that she’s glad she does ballet and that’s all she wants to do right now. This is a great book to help kiddos figure out that life isn’t just about doing, sometimes it about cherishing the quiet moments we have.

Hello fellow teachers and friends! This is my second time setting up a blog. Don't laugh!! I hope that I can keep it up! It is definitely something that I have been wanting to do for a long time. So here it goes! I’ve was in the classroom for 13th years as an elementary school teacher. It is amazing to think that! I can't believe that I have taught four years in first grade, seven years in second grade, and two years in fifth grade! The bulk of my teaching was in the state of Virginia and the rest in Georgia. My 13 years teaching have taught me a lot about authentic teaching, life long learning and the dreaded state testing all while adjusting to a higher grade level. I truly feel that those years upped my level teaching in ways that I never could have imagined! I am now an Instructional Coach! This blog will be my journey. Hopefully you will stick with me!
