I’m Currently

I’m Currently-

Reading“I Must Betray You” by Ruta Sepetys
An amazing young adult novel to read in light of current events.  I am adoring it!  Highly recommend for any fan of historical fiction.
WritingIn the Slice of Life writing challenge
I am hopeful that I will be able to accomplish a lot of growth in my writing. Writing is a pain point of mine to teach and do personally so this was a great push for me!
Trying toPrioritize sleep
Going to bed “early” and waking up on time (not hitting snooze) are constant challenges for me. I simply love the quiet of the night and the joyful peace that comes at the end of a long day.
Working onPlanning for a substitute
I am taking a few personal days coming up so preparing for them has been a big item on my to do list.
Listening to“Six the Musical”
I love historical stories/plays/musicals.  I was raised by a historian so something must have rubbed off on me. A friend recommended this soundtrack to me since I love the musical “Hamilton”.  “Six” is kind of campy and very pop oriented but makes for great treadmill listening.


  1. I have used this form before! I Must Betray You is a book on my list! I can’t wait to read it. Participating in this challenge is one of the best things you can do for your teaching of writing. I promise you won’t regret it! And the rewards of writing go on and on…


  2. I’ve listened to Six as well…it was enjoyable but didn’t “stick” with me like Hamilton. I can sing the entire Hamilton soundtrack. 😳


  3. Love this!!!! I struggle with loving the calm of night also. When everyone else is asleep and no one needs me…those are some good hours. I am working on getting to bed before 11 these days


  4. Your list is a reminder that we are more than just teachers, and teaching is more than just talking in front of students every day. What other profession has to do sub plans, after all? Welcome to our Slicing community!


  5. Golden line: “Writing is a pain point of mine to teach and do personally so this was a great push for me!” Good for you!
