I’m still here!
As many of you know, I started a new teaching position at the beginning of the school year, I am one of three special education teachers at a local high school and have about twenty students on my case load- which means a lot of tracking, monitoring, mentoring, and IEP stuff. I also direct teach […]Continue reading
By popular request… Gruyere stuffed beef & mushroom meatballs…
I’ve had quite a few days of feeling “off”, I’m sure its a matter of frustration with the State of Indiana – after being on unemployment since January, I was “selected” for an audit of my claim, it took a month of non-payment for unemployment audit to finally get settled (I did all I was […]Continue reading
Every recipe has a story… well maybe not every recipe… but this one does!
Layered Meatloaf… who knew would be such a hit. The story behind the ever evolving meatloaf recipes (I have dozens…) is when Mike and I first moved in together, I made dinner one night… meatloaf, mashed potatoes and some vegetable (I don’t remember now… probably green beans), as we sat down Mike informs me that […]Continue reading
Inside-Out Chicken Cordon Bleu Meatballs & Dijon Pasta
Not a lot to report today but know that this is a relatively easy meal. Simple ingredients and steps. Mind you the pasta is definitely an acquired taste… if you aren’t a mustard fan, skip it and serve with whatever makes your belly happy! Meatball Ingredients: 1 lb ground chicken 3-4 mushrooms chopped finely (I […]Continue reading
Sometimes we need something simple and easy…
With all the job applications and disappointments lately, my creativity has been sort of lacking. I’m still on the hunt for that awesome position that will be my end all be all position… I know, aren’t we all? I miss truly being in an educational setting, whether virtual or in person, I love both. 🙂 […]Continue reading
Bourbon Chicken & Shrimp… yummy!
With constant looking for positions and touching base with friends and former colleagues, the hunt continues. So I decided it was high time to break out the wok and revisit an old favorite! I hit a snag though, I had intended to include broccoli but alas… my broccoli was not in good shape for human […]Continue reading
Warning… random and may not be the best read…
I’ve wondered off and on for years now, if I should take some of my experiences and share them with others. There’s a lot being said about education, teachers, administrators, etc. these days and I sometimes wonder if anyone would really like to know one educator’s experiences with some of the insanity that this career […]Continue reading
Spring is coming!
Lately I’ve been feeling a bit down, I blame unemployed status (I need to be busy and doing something) and the weather. I’m so ready for Spring! I’ve been applying for administrative and teaching positions throughout the area, the problem is that most of those jobs are for next school year… But I have had […]Continue reading
Quiet Sunday… so far
I’m hoping that this week shows some progress… so frustrated… as most know, my position was eliminated (again) at Campagna, so far no pay from unemployment because they have been unsuccessful in reaching Campagna… UGH… but hopefully that situation is resolved by Tuesday. Just as an informational bit here… if the case worker for unemployment […]Continue reading
Happy Snowy Saturday!
So its been a snowy week of job hunting, job hunting… job hunting! I have made a lot of leftovers this week… hence the limit of recipes coming in… lol… Really its more like by the time I’ve spent 3-4 hours scouring the local districts and job boards for possible jobs… I’m over being on […]Continue reading
