Highlights of 2017

2017 was a very exciting year for me. Here are some highlights in three categories.

Teaching

This has been my first full (calendar) year of teaching. The first words that come to mind when I think about teaching are “wonderful” and “amazing”, but “hectic” and “stressful” are close seconds. That being said, I feel extremely fortunate to have found something I feel so passionate about and to work with awesome kids on a daily basis.

Book

This year I became a published author. The excitement of holding my first published book in my hands compared only to that of holding my newborn baby. The main difference is that with a baby your initial concerns are all about protecting it from “the world” while with a book they are quite the opposite – how to get it out there (and in the spirit of getting it out there, here’s the link where you can get it or write a review 🙂 ).

Family

Zoe started Kindergarten this year and Katie entered 4th grade. Although I post about them much more rarely than I used to, we still have many exciting conversations on a variety of topics. They both like math, but they also have a number of other interests: gymnastics, singing, piano playing, and Harry Potter topping the list. And then there’s my husband, who supports us in all of our crazy endeavors 🙂

I am looking forward to continuing these projects in 2018 and perhaps adding to the collection 🙂

Happy New Year!
