P52: Week 47 around the sun

Oh what a week!! 

I started it with a nice and relaxing Sunday. I went to the Museum of Science which I hadn't been to in ages and was able to make it to the farmer's market. A nice relaxing weekend, which was good considering the middle part of the week was largely a blur! 

In a span of 5 days I crammed: meeting meteorologist Jeremy Reiner, lots of teaching, lots of meetings, and so much more! On top of that I was practicing 4 sections of torah reading for this past Shabbat. The Jewish calendar is so off this year, that my 13th anniversary of my bat mitzvah was a full month before it's actual Gregorian calendar anniversary! 

Oh, yeah, and the PBS video went live this weekend!! That and an article in the Boston Globe where I am quoted was published this week. It's insane. I never thought this would happen to me, or my school, ever! It's been amazing to be part of such a once in a life-time event and find the importance in the holidays converging and be able to teach my class that, amazing! I embedded the video below - enjoy!!

Highlight of the week: Oh man - way too many choices this week! It may just have to be a tie between meeting Jeremy Reiner and being on PBS! 

Favorite teaching moment: My class are pretending to be Pilgrims writing letters back to England saying what it's like in Plymouth. One child wrote "The voyage was not easy because I had to drink beer. I didn't like it I wanted the bad water!" - love that was his Mayflower voyage takeaway!

Random-osity: Whenever I take tissues from a tissue box, I always have to take two tissues...random, right?

(seriously, are my kiddos adorable!? and Rabbi David, one of our co-heads, is just amazing to hear!)

The reason I take two tissues, too, is because you never know if they will be thick enough. But, two should do the trick. That is my reason, anyway. hahahahaha

Thanks for liking my new design. It should last me til spring, I hope. I just love changing things up [for free]
