Back to School
Hard to Say Goodbye
For the past twelve years, I was the teacher returning to school, anxious to meet my new students and ready to engage and challenge them. Its been bittersweet watching all the photos this year because it has made me miss my students and school.
I've known since the end of January that I wasn't going to be returning to the classroom this fall and you might think that after 8 months I would have come to terms with that decision, but change is hard and even though I embrace change, I am struggling with this one.
When I became a teacher, I thought I would teach for only one year. One year became twelve. At the end of this school year, I will officially close out my tenure as a professional educator. This fall, I will be enrolled full-time at Texas A&M University in College Station, working on my Master's Degree in Human Resource Management. The program is three semesters, and I'm slated to graduate in December 2019.
The Beauty of Paris and London
As a seasoned traveler, it is easy to become complacent and think you "know it all." My trip to Oman was the fifth time I'd traveled to the Middle East, and I was confident that Oman would feel like the other countries I'd visited.
I've never experienced love at first sight, but I think I understand the concept better because, after one day in Oman, I was in love. The country is a beautiful juxtaposition of tradition and modernity.
Thailand in 6 Shots
Earlier this month, my best friend Chandra and I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Paris and London during my Spring Break. It has been a few years since I've been to Europe and I was excited to visit again. Paris is one of my favorite cities and I was thrilled that I could share it with Chandra. Here is a small selection of some of my favorite images.
Holy Land in Photos
For Thanksgiving, I traveled with my friend Jen to Thailand and enjoyed some amazing beaches, beautiful scenery and the most delicious meal.
I realized that I never showcased some of my favorite images from my trip.
