Summer 2014


Bees-a-buzz, kids'll blow dandelion fuzz
And I'll be doing whatever snow does in summer.
A drink in my hand, my snow up against the burning sand
Prob'ly getting gorgeously tanned in summer.

I'm sure that you know those lyrics from Frozen ;)

We here in EdStudies hope that you are enjoying every moment of your summer- whether it be spent splashing around in a pool with the kids, reading a good book on the beach, or marathoning shows on Netflix.

We only have a few weeks before the new 2015 cohort begins on campus. Can't believe we're starting up again already!!

Remember to keep us up to date with any new jobs, honors/awards, or great news in your life! I'll also be posting job openings, if you know of any in your school/district. We also LOVE seeing pictures of our alums hanging out, so if you have any to share- send them to us on Facebook or email April!

Looking forward to the smells of sunblock and barbecues, the lights of fireflies, and the sounds of waves crashing onto the sand. Enjoy the heat!!


P.S.- Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there and Happy 4th of July!
