When I was a child growing up in New York and Wisconsin, one of my favorite things to do was to look for footprints in the snow. As I walk around our beautiful KRCS campus, I am always on the lookout for footprints in the mud! I hope my scientists will learn to recognize some common footprints with this new matching game.
My daughter recently moved to Chicago, so my husband and I spent a long weekend with her during spring vacation. It was a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) themed weekend. We visited the Museum of Science and Industry and traveled down the river on the Chicago Architecture Boat Tour.
I tell visitors all the time that watching students develop their passions through high school is one of the greatest blessings for teachers at a PK through 12 school. One of my passions has always been dance. My daughter was a competitive dancer, and I danced in high school and college dance teams. I was even certified to teach Christian hip-hop two summers ago through Shazzy Fitness!
This year, I am assisting the coach of the Tigerettes, the King’s Ridge varsity dance team. What a great group of talented girls!
I saw this photo first on Facebook. It really struck me. Just look at how the woman in the middle is savoring the moment. She is present.
I think we miss so much.
I just purchased this children’s book, What Does it Mean to be Present? and I can’t wait to share it. It really speaks to this idea.

I have been cleaning out my basement and came across a box of photos from my first years as a teacher. I taught Head Start in Montgomery County, Maryland near Washington DC. It seems like a lifetime ago!
Far and away the best prize life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
On Thursday and Friday, March 15th and 16th, I will be attending the National Science Teachers Conference in Atlanta. SO excited!
Feeling a little nostalgic this week. Thought I’d share a photo of my daughter, Kelsey, and her dad at the first KRCS Father Daughter Dance. She was in fifth grade. Can’t believe almost 18 years have passed since this moment! Sometimes the days seem so long, but the years really do pass quickly. Enjoy each precious moment with those beautiful children. Love well!
