Class is in Session

My first week of virtual teaching this year went well. I have 285 students this semester alone which is double what I had last year for each semester individually. I was happy to see several of my old students as well as all of the new faces. They were happy to see me too. Just like in “regular class”, they did not want to get off of zoom when class was over. We did have a few hiccups earlier in the week with technology glitches and some parents were frustrated. I understand their frustration, but I also saw that they cared which is what I focused more on while assisting in the best way that I could. While virtual teaching may be easier to do in terms of classroom management and such, I honestly feel that having class on zoom is low key boring. I miss interacting with my students in p...

Freedom is a Mindset

This past weekend Juneteenth was celebrated. Reason being, African Americans were not free in 1776 when America gained its independence. The same can be said about Juneteenth for my ancestors as well. My grandmother was born in the 1920's and she was still living on a plantation farm with her parent's former slave master's. I learned of this back in 2017 when I was writing my book The Book of Corinthian Chapter One: Beauty in the Bayou. This baffled me. I had a ton of questions. When did slaves in that part of Louisiana learn of their freedom? Why would they still live on a plantation if they were free? Come to find out, my great grandparents were told that they were free at some point later, I'm not sure of the exact date, but they still chose to stay where they were comfortable and work ...

Magical May Motherhood Edition

Welcome to Magical May! Last month for Abundant April I got to witness God's abundant favor in a major way! Not only did I experience this favor but I also saw God's hands working in my family and love one's lives too. So many great things happened and I am forever grateful. I'm expecting the momentum to continue this month, hence the name "Magical May". I'm praying that this month God works magic in your life too as you receive all the love, peace, and happiness that your soul desires! The Creator loves you and so do I! May is also always a magical month for me because it's my birthday month. I always experience a rebirth around this time. I've also experienced rebirths each time that I've brought a new life into this world and I feel it happening again as I'm preparing for my baby gir...
