I just created a request for my classroom: Help My Students Wreck This Book!
If you chip in to help my students, you’ll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks. I am working with two of my colleagues in the district to establish a “Wellness Day” for our incoming freshmen. Keri Smith’s “Wreck This Book” will play a vital role in helping our students learn that making mistakes is ok and often encouraged!
Your support would mean so much to us. And you can use code DREAMS to have your donation matched!

Last week we had Parent-Teacher Conferences at school. No matter how prepared you feel, this is always a very long and stressful week. I started thinking about how I destress and wanted to share what I came up with.
See, I am still a little kid at heart. When I want to escape from the world, I grab a book, run the tub, and take a loooooong bubble bath. I have a small addiction to a great bath products company and my bathroom is full of shower gels, bubble bars, and bath bombs. The company is Lush, a company that specializes in handmade bath products. If you love indulging yourself while also using vegan, fresh, and handmade products, I highly recommend checking them out! Tonight I took a long hot bath with an Ocean Salt body scrub and an Ice Hotel bubble bar slice. I finished a decent mystery book and relaxed, completely unbothered by the rest of the world. 🙂
