sacred classroom thoughts

March 5, 2021

From the moment that I stepped into this room I felt like it was holy ground. The first thing I did was take a moment to pray with tears at where I was after nearly a decade of fighting for my life. I prayed that this year...the year of returning to teaching and seeing a dream fulfilled (after 8 years away due to my extreme fight for my health and life against Advanced Late Stage Lyme Disease and Cancer) would be an incredibly special year.....

What I didn't know was just how special it would be which is all because of the students I spend life with each day...

I have learned in new and deep ways that everyone needs a sacred place where our roots can grow deep and where we feel like we have a refuge (or a crying closet haha). Laughter, deep conversations, and life have happened here and it has been humbling, amazing, and beyond incredible to experience this year together. I love you guys deeply. Thank you for making F112 an incredibly sacred place that I love coming to everyday.

All people need a place that gives wings to their dreams, nurturing possibilities of who they might become
