For All The Little Girls Who Are Watching This Election

Nov 9, 2016

For all the little girls who are watching this election, My 20 year-old daughter voted in her first election this year.

Oct 19, 2016

Teachers, how do you communicate with parents? Are you leveraging pro-active communication, or waiting until ‘something happens’ to make your first contact (definitely not ideal). I know a large part of the education workforce is comprised of ‘digital immigrants’, but with a little time and motivation, all teachers can (and should) utilize technology to...

It’s Time To Let Donald Trump Be The Poster Boy For Rape Culture

Oct 13, 2016

“I’ve gotta use some tic tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Donald Trump says….“And when you’re a star they let you do it,”…“Grab them by the pussy,” Donald Trump says. “You can do anything.” Like so many of us, Donald Trump’s statement made my stomach churn. It made my mouth drop open...

It’s Time For A Girls Night Out

Oct 2, 2016

We made it through September – it’s time for a girls night out. Seriously. I cannot even remember the last time I saw a movie in the theater. I want to say it’s when my husband and I saw the first “Lord of the Rings” film – and it ended badly when he realized,...

BlogHer 16 – A Photo Story From Los Angeles

Aug 9, 2016

Last week I pushed myself out of my introverted comfort zone and went to BlogHer 16 in Los Angeles. It’s not easy for me to go to a huge conference, share a room with women I don’t know, and spend four days surrounded by thousands of people with very little alone time; you can...

You Should Go Home To Yourself

Jul 12, 2016

“You should go home to your hermitage; it is inside you. Close the doors, light the fire, and make it cozy again. That is what I call ‘taking refuge in the island of self.’ If you don’t go home to yourself, you continue to lose yourself. You destroy yourself and you destroy people around you,...

Aren’t You Tired Of Seeing People Die?

Jul 7, 2016

White America, aren’t you tired of seeing people die? I made a mistake of watching the news today. I tuned in to see the first videos released of Alton Sterling being put to the ground and shot to death I made a mistake of watching the news to see his widow behind a podium...

To Look At Life As It Is

Jun 30, 2016

Summers have always been my ‘mommy’ time. I’ve never taught summer school; I’ve always looked at my time away from the classroom as time to focus on my kids, primarily, and also to catch up on all the other life stuff I push off between August to June. These 8 weeks of no students...
