Welcome to Monday! This is your opportunity to learn a little more about the writer behind the blog.
As you may already have learned, I am an introvert. I get worn out from being around large groups of people. This is why I love teaching preschool and piano. My preschool is small, so we have 15 children at a time. There are no other preschool classrooms on the same site so I only need to get to know the families and children who are directly in my class. And with piano, I get to teach one student at a time. This works very well for my introverted self. The summers off are truly a time to rest and recharge and I really enjoy my alone time now that my children are both graduated from high school. Still, I’m sure I’ll miss them terribly when they eventually move out.
I’m working on relaxing and am hopeful that by the end of August, I’ll be fully rested and recharged and ready to go back to work. I’m feeling very grateful that I’ve been able to enjoy a couple of months off each year. It really helps me to appreciate and enjoy my preschoolers, piano students, and their families when I go back every fall.
What makes you feel grateful?

Welcome to Monday. Are you ready for the week ahead?
Thanks for stopping by. So for Mondays my challenge will be to help you get to know me a little bit. Here are three things you might not know about me.
- I love a challenge. Without challenge in my life, I stagnate. With challenge, I thrive. For the past two years, I’ve been part of the 12×12 Picture Book Challenge I’ve challenged myself to learn classical piano and memorize really difficult pieces. What I like about a challenge is working towards a goal and actually completing the challenge. I love both the work and the sense of satisfaction. How about you?
- I am an introvert. I like quiet. I like one to one conversations. When I’m around a lot of people for long periods of time, it can wear me out. That’s when I need to be alone to refocus and re-energize. Still, I like people and would feel alone without social interaction. Are you an introvert?
- I have a sweet tooth. When I get a sugar craving, I don’t discriminate. I just need something sweet. Anything will do. Still, I have huge appreciation for high quality chocolate. That stuff is simply amazing.
Well, that’s it for now. (And I guess it wasn’t so difficult.)
Have a wonderful week!
