Thanksgiving & Giving Thanks day 4 – Amanda Carpenter-Sutton is an awesome woman who’s heart is as full of love as it is strength and passion. I was in middle school when she and my brother Ian Sutton began dating, and I was in the 8th grade when they gave birth to my nephew Zach. It’s crazy how much I sincerely miss those days! I would stay the night, sleeping on their… Read More
Jeremy Burton is my oldest friend and someone I’m super thankful to have in my life. Through the very worst tribulations I’ve endured, he stood next to me, strong as a rock, lending me strength and support. Jeremy calls things the way he sees it, is willing to put me in my place if I’m wrong, and able to let me challenge him as well. We talk openly about work, school, family,… Read More

After school, his room is just as busy as any morning class, as his kids always come in for extra… Read More

It’s just something I do for fun and to make our days a tiny bit brighter. Today, two of… Read More
My school has been selling Halloween Candy Grams for a week or so, but they just raised the prices to about $3. Today, a student came by and said he was unhappy with the price, so He bought his own supplies and made this one for me! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I love these kids.
Every Wednesday since the school year started, I’ve been giving small snacks to each of the teachers on my floor. The first week I gave simple lolly pops, last week I gave everyone a Snickers candy bar and this week I gave away little bags of potato chips. Why Wednesday, for most teachers at SCIS, it’s the longest day of the week. Most of us have meetings after school then we still need… Read More
