I Feel Pretty

 There was a time

when I would spend all day

on a Saturday

getting my hair done.

I remember feeling so pretty afterward.


As I have gotten older,

time has gotten more valuable.

I spend about 25 minutes

in the barber's chair.

I leave feeling just as pretty.

Hard Is Hard

Hard is Hard

I'm not sure which is harder...

  • Teaching remotely and trying to get Scholars to respond during the "We Do" portion of the "district/campus-mandated" Gradual Release of Responsibility Model.


  • Seeing someone hurting and not being able to put your arms around them and attempt to assure them everything will be okay.

BOTH are equally hard. One, mentally. One, emotionally.

In that moment, I did what I could. I stood 3 feet away, cried with her, and prayed.
