So . . . I’m back now!

Given the events of January 2021, I can safely assume my slightly longer absence was not a surprise, or noticed! We had a lot on our plates.

Well, what an end to 2020 and what a start to 2021. It didn’t quite measure up to March 2020–the month that seemed to never end, but it did have March 2020’s bafflement, apprehension, and general shenanigans.

Regardless, we can hopefully, now, safely, start a new chapter in what I’m sure will be a long textbook someday. I’m back, ready to write, share, and learn–have you checked out Canon Reclaimed yet? 😁

Insurrection, Impeachment, Inauguration, Investment
— January 2021, I wasn’t ready.


I have been expanding and extending my skillset, network, and experiences for over a decade in education. While each of placement and title has developed my character and practice, and each has given me their own unique pride and reward, I have to share this from English Language Fellowship program.

I am so proud and I am learning so much–and that’s the beauty of teaching and being a teacher, there is always room, space, and a place for us to continue learning. Find me, my new set of coworkers, my fellow educators, and more about my placement on Facebook @RELONorthAfrica.

Happy Election Month!

Like most Americans, I lost a number of hours of sleep over the past couple of weeks. I had the added layer and privilege of scouring my own campaign result updates, almost daily. While I anticipated some level of change, suspense, and news, I thought I would be available and able to continue all my work–with the same level of attention and detail I conducted myself pre-election. I was wrong.

As we continue on this saga, acquiring more final counts, more precise data, and a transition team, I am coming back here. I apologize for the delay — it’s been quite the month, and year!

Happy Election Day!

To all my fellow voters in the United States, I wish you a Happy Election Day . . . possibly Election week or Election month! This year we’ve had record turn-out already, and I expect even greater turn-out today; so, stay safe — and make sure to take notes today for lessons and stories in the future, for our own kids and for our students 🤗
