I have become a better parent, my children have made connections with others and felt accepted and loved, we have become more engaged with each other.”– McCall, Kindermusik mom

A Time to Dance

April 8, 2016 |

Yes, it was a couple of weeks ago, but we just passed the autumnal equinox, and the lesson that I learned about it as a metaphor for my life still lingers on my mind.  So pretend that it didn’t snow this week and hearken back to those 2 weeks of September when it still felt like fall. There ar...

Acceptance

April 8, 2016 |

Connection and Failure

April 8, 2016 |

As I’ve mentioned before, I teach Spanish at a local school. One of my biggest rules is that the students are only to speak Spanish, or, at least, we aim for Spanish 90% of the time.
