Hello friends!

My last post wasn’t very laughable, so I wanted to lighten the mood with a very laughable moment that is my life.

A few weeks ago, the classroom that is connected to mine through a little hallway where we share a bathroom had a student with bed bugs. If yo...

I knew teaching in an urban city would be very different than teaching in a posh, private school in Chile. I knew it would be more difficult and the challenges I would face would dramatically contrast the elite private school bubble I felt comfortable teaching in. I we...

Well well well… It’s been a minute since my last update. Since then, I’ve been busy doing this thing called life. More on that to come.

Something I wanted to share is that I accepted a summer school teaching position for the month of July. It’s been very interesting goi...

Hi all

As promised, I thought I’d give a little update on my life and check-in. So for those of you just tuning into my blog, I returned home (The U.S.) at the end of December after teaching abroad in Chile for 3.5 years. I celebrated Christmas with my family for the fi...

Since moving to Chile, Colombia had been one of my top destinations but I never seemed to have enough days off to make it work. So I decided that on my way back to the U.S. from Rio, I’d stop in Colombia for a week –I mean it’s on the way right?

I flew to Cartagena and...

Hey strangers! Miss me? Sorry, life has been a little bit chaotic, but I'm back now to fill y'all in on the juicy details. For starters, I moved back to the good ol' US of A. More to come on whats next for this not-average-teacher, but in due time, grasshoppers...

Hello friends,

I finally found a minute in the chaos to sit down and write. To put it simply, it’s been chaotic. Simultaneously closing the school year and leaving the country indefinitely has been a lot for this gringa to handle. My game-plan has been to accomplish sma...

Hello friends!

I’m currently writing to occupy myself in the awkward silence as the handyman installs a new porcelain throne in my bathroom. Why you ask? Let’s backup to yesterday afternoon.

I was trying my best to enjoy my Sunday afternoon (Sundays are my least-favorite...

Well hello! It’s been a while!

Let’s back it up all the way to mid-September when I returned from Easter Island (see previous post).

I actually hopped on a plane a day later and headed back to the USA for a very brief visit home. It was an impromptu trip –one that I was...
