My Students

Through social media I have been able to get back in touch with some of my students.  I taught them when they were 10 years old and they are now adults.  I was so happy to get in touch with a few of them and I am so proud of all they are aspiring to be in their lives, it is just wonderful.  After writing back and forth with a couple of my former students I realized how much I miss that time in my life.  I was 21 when I started teaching and I taught until I was 28 and had my son.  I was a good teacher.  I loved my job and it showed.  Even though I loved it then, I am not sure there is room in my life now for teaching.  Things are different in the world of education now with common core and I am not sure if I could teach that way.  I immersed myself in my job, my job was my life.  Now things are different, now I have an 8 year old and a 2 year old with Down Syndrome so I couldn't do a job like that anymore and give my all to it.  

Am I happy to never return to teaching?  Maybe.  I can find other things in my life to be good at.  I am happy that I was able to help a few kids during my years of teaching, I am glad I was able to guide them and hopefully teach them a few things that have helped them in their lives. Right now my focus will be my kids. Luckily I have the background to possibly homeschool them if I need to one day. To all my students I hope you all succeed at anything you put your hearts and minds to, may you always follow your dreams, may you become all I knew you would be.

Celebutard- Sephora Lipstick Kat Von D

I will no longer shop at Sephora.  They are carrying a line of lipsticks from Kat Von D and one of the shades is called Celebutard.  Celebrity+retard= Celebutard.  I am so not laughing.  Not even cute, or funny or humane. My daughter has Down Syndrome, and I so hate the use of the R word.  It is rude, Kat Von D and Sephora.

I used to love to shop at Sephora and now I am so very disappointed.  I will no longer shop in your store, and I will spread the word to others not to shop there.  We all deserve an apology and you should remove the product from your shelves immediately Sephora.  As for Kat Von D you definitely get an F.
