Dreams are Beautiful

#dreams   #beautiful  this shirt made me smile but also sad. When I see hopelessness it makes me sad as I see a child that is capable and has tons of potential but current circumstances leave them without drive or care. How can I help my students set goals and dreams and work towards them better?! How can we reach kids and encourage them when they feel like they are stuck in a pit? I want them to reach high without fear of failing, and get up when they do fail. I want them to dream big dreams and work hard for them. I want them to know they were made on purpose for a purpose with a purpose.  #beingreal #teacherlife   #teachersofinstagram #latenightthoughts

What are reborn dolls and why are they so popular?

As a parent, you probably know a lot about dolls and toys. It is a completely new world that opens once you get a child. Suddenly, you will know all the manufacturers and product types out there. However, there is one product that is especially intriguing. I am talking about reborn dolls. So what are reborn baby dolls and why are they so popular among some people? Reborn dolls as a toy When people tell you about some great doll, the first thing that comes to your mind “Hey, this is something I might consider buying for my baby girl”. In case of reborn dolls, this isn’t true. Although reborn dolls are dolls per se, they are much more different from your traditional products. These items can be really expensive and they are highly collectible. On top of that, they are a product that is much more popular among adult women than any other group. Due to their price and uniqueness, this is a doll that you should never give to a toddler. That doesn’t mean kids can’t play with it. Still, you h

Every Day

This shirt got me thinking as my day was very busy and I was starting to get the case of the Mondays. Then I was reminded that "today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice in it!" It really helped me reshape my own stinking thinking to find good parts to my day. More "I get to's" and less "I have to's". So make everyday a good day!  #havefun   #bepositive #teachersofinstagram   #teacherlife   #jesus   #joyful #praisingmom

Why A Career in Therapeutic Care Can Be A Great Choice

There are lots of career paths you can go down if you are interested in working in healthcare, and they all offer very different professional experiences – from analyzing samples in a lab or managing hospital resources to taking care of patients or setting policies. While most people think of doctors and nurses when they think about health care workers, there are hundreds of specialisms, even just within these roles, and then there are all the other careers that support the operations of healthcare facilities too! As you might expect from a field so broad, there is a job to suit just about everyone’s interests and requirements when it comes to working lifestyle. One of the less obvious areas of healthcare that can actually offer fantastic opportunities and a great work life balance is working in fields within therapeutic care.

100th Day of School

It's official, you are now 100 days smarter!   It is so fun getting the kids excited about their learning.   I got to be all the teacher's favorites as I gave many teachers different 100th Day of School supplies to them from Oriental Trading!  They even thanked me during a staff meeting...I sure was thankful for this blog at that moment!   I gave the kindergarteners some buttons, pencils, and 100 Bingo Dotters, as well as the 100 pattern maker.   First grade got "It's all about 100" keychains and frisbees! 2nd graders got 100-day puzzles, and 100 find and seek posters.  The fun was had by all!  My favorite thing was that the puzzles were not all the same.  They had different colors so the kids loved it!   I also had fun looking at the seek and find page and it was a fun little activity for the kids!
