Upcoming Events:


4/3: Ripples of Hope

As soon the cards are delivered, I'll distribute them to your boxes. Your classes will fill those out, turn them into you, and then you'll turn them into me. Your kids can write their Ripples of Hope cards to anyone in the district. Super fun and super simple.


4/17 Day of Gratitude

Here are your plans for DOG. They'll be in your box along with materials by April 5. This is a short, 30-minute collection of one video and two exercises. If you've any questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to let me know!


TESTING: Oh, testing. Are you (or your students) sweating our upcoming assessments? Here are some exercises for you and for your kids to bring some ZEN to this season.
