Lovin’ summer learnin’

If I could spend all day long learning, I would be the happiest person ever. I wouldn’t stop to eat, or drink or even sleep if my mind, body and family could take it. Planning out my learning is something that I hadn’t thought of doing until last year and haven’t really put into place fully much, but this summer I have used Angela Watson’s 5 Summer Secrets for a Stress-Free Fall and it has been very helpful in guiding me to schedule out the things I want to learn about, projects I need to do at home and preparations that have to get done for the start of school. She guides you through the big picture and then down to the day to day details and even provides you with note-taking organizers and calendar PDF’s to facilitate all of this planning.

I have used my own notebook for re-creating her tables and calendars with my own personal flare. With her guidance I have set a main summer goal to aim for and broken it down into the four categories she has suggested of family, home, work and my personal well-being. Now it’s just a matter of getting my daily tasks well distributed and disciplining myself to stick to the schedule.🙄




I am a dual language (English is my L1, Spanish my L2) middle school science teacher, mom of five boys and one girl, wife of one wonderful man since 1991. We live in Forest Grove, Oregon and I teach in Hillsboro at South Meadows Middle School. I am an enthusiastic integrator of blended classroom learning, with aspirations to go as gradeless as possible, connect my students globally through blogging, and implement project based learning to maximize student engagement.
