5 Things I Like About Myself #handwrittenjournal


A student-made card I received today from a third grader who wants to be in my class next year. I had her sister in my class 4 years ago. I keep these cards and notes in what I call my “Sunshine File.” They come in handy on rainy days ;) Encouragement from a child is the most refreshing gift on earth.

I'm a blogger, film critic, & podcaster with an MA in English from California State University, Fullerton. I teach public school, 4th grade as my primary occupation. My views on films and life are usually headstrong and often 'left of center' on movies and life, but I have respect for the other side. I married my high-desert princess (now my queen). We have 3 children.
