A Teacher Tomorrow

Today was the first day I wore my diamond wedding ring to work in 4 years. Most recently, I left the world of administration to return to teaching.

Afro Nation Puerto Rico

Afro Nation is a traveling Afro beats music festival that takes place annually. The festivals stops in Las Vegas, Portugal, and Puerto Rico. I obviously chose Puerto Rico because it’s so close and I liked the line up better. Perhaps one day, I’ll venture to Portugal. I just hate flights over 4 hours. Any tipsContinue reading “Afro Nation Puerto Rico”
