Staying connected outside of the classroom and even outside of school grounds is very important to me!

Think about this… I’m teaching and mentoring students 10 months out of 12. The least we can do is put effort and quality in those 10 months. Parents and students are welcome to visit this blog at any time. (Students should have parent consent, of course!)

In this blog, I will be giving tips and writing about any concerns on absolutely anything! Maybe a parent contacts me via email and asks about a certain lesson plan and how they can incorporate the same things at home. I can suggest exercises or games to do at home with your children. Even suggestions to better accommodate to your children are welcome and I as well can post about these topics!

If there are things you want help on, whether you are asking me for websites to practice assignments or incorporating what you’ve learned with real life or fun games. I will post these for your benefit. I want to be of help! Ask me anything or even comment on these posts and I will do my best to respond as quickly as I can.

July 4th

On July 4th, we celebrate Independence Day! It’s a time to take pride in our country and a day to celebrate with our friends and family.

Where will you be watching fireworks and celebrating July 4th?


Here are some fun July 4th arts and crafts!


Math Flashcards

For those who may be having a hard time with speed in addition or subtraction, here’s a site where you can practice! It works like flashcards.


Leave your scores under! Who can do the most in 2 minutes?!

I tried to play with the addition flashcards and got 79 out of 80!
Who can beat me?! 😀

When is your birthday?

Birthdays are meant to be celebrated! They only come ONCE a year for each of us. Making that day special is important for each one of my students. Please email me or leave a comment with your child’s name with their birthdays!

On their special day, parents are free to come in and bring food and drinks to celebrate. Please be noted of nut allergies!

Do they really work?

There are two great online websites that I find great for students to use at home when they are not in a classroom. Many families have found them effective!

You can use it during the school year to practice your skills or even in the summer. Maybe you’re taking a summer road trip with family, this is a great website to keep your skills and brain sharp for the two months off! You will be so prepared when it’s time to go back to school in September!

ABC Mouse for the younger kids (2-8 years old)

IXL for grades K-12

These are great as well for parents to join they children in working together. Parents are able to see what students are learning, as well as seeing their progress.

You can click these links or even on the menu bar!

Give it a try… Do you think it’s affective?

1st Day of School: JITTERS! [TIPS]

Everyone has been super nervous about the first day of school at one point or another.
You start thinking about how new classes will be, who will be there and what to wear… Not only do you think about that but also buying the right school supplies!

But no worries! Here’s 5 easy tips to ease your first day of school jitters!

Remind yourself why you’re there.
A lot of the times, we worry about the friends we will have (which is important also) but remind yourself why you’re there. School is about learning new things and educating yourself. Don’t lose sight of that!

Dress-up the way YOU like!
Look good, feel good! You gain more confidence this way, as well as attracting friends who may have similar interests and likes. 

Buy the essentials.
Buy a notebook, folder, pens/pencils to get you going for the first day of school. Usually the first day you are given the detailed list of what you will actually use through the school year. Also this way backpacks aren’t filled with things you may not need.

Get a good night’s sleep!
You don’t want to walk into school half asleep. You will be less attentive and aware of what is going on around you. But if you have good rest, you are able to absorb all information given to you on the first day!

First impressions are always important. Not only is this important with friends but also your teachers.This may leave a lasting impression for you this year!

There’s nothing to worry about! Experiencing new things are always an adventure and always fun. Everyone is probably feeling the same way too… Make the best out of your first day!
