I teach. I reach. I run.
Welcome to my blog! As I completed my second marathon (well it was a marathon relay) I began thinking about my love of running and my love of teaching. I was running along the Pacific coast on Highway 1 through Caramel, California. While I was taking in the exquisite scenery, I couldn't help but think of my kids. Every day is so exhausting and at the same time so rewarding. Each student means the world to me and I really never stop thinking about them. Running relieves the stress of eight hours a day with middle schoolers and gives me a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the day. As a new teacher, each day brings new adventures and challenges. Running also prepares me for what lies ahead. When I run in the morning I am so energized for the day! I love sharing my passion for running with my students and everyone I know. I was amazed when I realized there was no club or organization for Teachers Who Run- so I created it! Feel free to share your experiences and stories.
