“My cup runneth over…”
Today was my first day back with our children. It was a wonderful day of connection and realignment. I was out of the class room for a few days covering for absences in the office before break; I then traveled to Seattle, Washington (my home in the states) for spring break only to return last night. Today was wonderfully refreshing. I loved being back in our community. We truly do have the most incredible kids!
Although it was a couple of weeks ago, I feel I must mention our NESA Science Fair. This Celebration of Learning was an absolutely spectacular event. The NESA Virtual Science Fair was a showcase of hard work, dedication, perseverance and academic prosperity. I am still in awe of all that I witnessed over the past few months. I am extremely proud of our young scientists: their ambitious commitment to their investigations and experiments was truly remarkable; they worked diligently on finalizing all of their discoveries; and they executed their presentations with poise, expertise and professionalism.
Thank you to all of you for your support. We were all so pleased to have you as our guests. If you were unable to make it or if you want to see more, please ask your scientist to guide you through the Blackboard which contains all of the teams’ hard work. The next round is for the judges. Only two of ACS’s teams will move on in the next two rounds. I am very proud of all of the teams and it is a shame that not all teams will be recognized as the “winners.” Everyone is a winner in 5D!
I am looking forward to an uninterrupted next couple of months. We still have much learning going on. Progress Reports will be coming home in two weeks. And the Poetry Café will soon follow. Time sure is passing quickly.

Ever since I was a child, I wanted to travel the world and to make a difference in other people's lives. I truly didn't believe I would become a teacher though; however, I am so glad that I am 5D's teacher! I am originally from Washington state but have enjoyed living in both West Africa and Lebanon. I am very blessed to have lived such an incredible life thus far.
