Teacher Friends & Homeschool parents: Would any of you be willing to be a part of my resource BETA testing group? If you didn't know, I am a school director and occasional teacher in a multi-age, international missionary school in Tijuana, Mexico. Our families are all missionaries and I create a lot of our curriculum to help supplement what the families are already using. I also sell these materials on a site called TeachersPayTeachers (at bit.ly/TPTbySheril). The money made from those sales goes back into our education department to help provide affordable quality education for our missionary families. Benefits include: • FREE teaching resources to use in your classrooms or with your families! This would be FOR YOU ONLY (not to be freely shared with your friends and cowokers, it's a perk). • First crack at the products and once they go live you will still have them for FREE! • You get to help make them the BEST THING EVER! Expectations: • Honest feedback on the resource & how it works or doesn't work with your kids • Ideas of types of things you as a teacher/homeschooler are looking for to help make your life easier • Ideas of age/grade level appropriate activities (I have ideas but not sure what grade level since I don't teach in a traditional school setting) • Once we've perfected them, help spread the word & share it with friends & coworkers and tell them where they can purchase it.

I had a "YAY" moment last week in our preschool. For those who don't know, I am the director & a teacher of a preschool serving our missionary families in Tijuana, Mexico. We are multi-cultural and multi-lingual. I had very little Montessori exposure about 12 years ago before I became a missionary when I nannied for a family that attended a Montessori school. When looking for something completely different last summer I stumbled across a Montessori website or youtube channel and got sucked in. We started implementing some of the principles and works into our class and after a HUGE renovation to the school last summer we officially made the transition into a more Montessori-focused (we are not officially trained and aren't an official Montessori school) school but that transition has been a little difficult. This is partially due to some teachers not fully grasping the philosophy and methods (my fault) and trying to introduce a whole new way of learning to all of the kids at once (we have ages 1-6 split more like a traditional Montessori school). Most of my time was spent redirecting a child to find an activity to do as well as teaching a new one to a student. Finally, last Thursday as I was walking through the classroom, I was in awe of the fact that everyone had come in, put their stuff away, picked an activity and was quietly & respectfully working. They were speaking with respect to others while not disturbing those who were working and my other teachers were quietly working alongside students as well. I was so elated!! YAY!!!! #smallvictories #noteveryday #butilltakeit

This was from a sermon about a month ago by my pastor (Dr. Kirk Walters) at my home church in Birmingham, AL but this quote totally resonates with me & it is something that has come up in several one on ones that I've had recently. Often times it is as simple as asking God what He wants to teach us during those moments of hurt & pain and other times it is a conscious decision to allow growth to happen out of that pain. We can't control the circumstances but we can control our reaction and what we do with the outcome. Give it to God, focus on Him instead & ask Him to show you something outside of yourself. When we stop focusing on our hurt & pain, He can bring that healing that we so desperately need and we can see the healing that He is offering!!! #preach #truth #beautyfromashes

My current thoughts on life in general, take them as you will. There is a reason that the flight attendants say in case of loss of cabin pressure place your mask on first & then help your child or those around you. If you are passed out because of lack of oxygen, you literally can't help anyone else. There is a reason that it is said "if you aren't taking care of yourself, you can't take care of others". If you aren't taking the time you need to take care of yourself & you end up sick, it does nothing for those in need of your care. There are times in life where being selfish (or self care) is important. If you continually give and give and give but don't take time to refuel or be selfish, your sustainability will be non-existent. This life that we have been given is a marathon, not a sprint. You have to pace yourself or you will not be able to finish. You also have to take care of yourself along the entire journey in order to complete the race. I want to see all people succeed in life. We need to be learning self care. Anyways, those are my thoughts and opinions. Love you all!! Take care of yourself & your families. God's blessings to each of you! If I can pray for you tonight, please don't hesitate to ask.
