Shine brightly in 2014!

Wishing all of our students, families, colleagues, 
and blog followers a Happy New Year!

May 2014 be your year to shine!

We all have a special light inside of us.
 Brighten up someone's day with yours...

Here is a short but sweet video clip 
created with the "Flipgram" app:

The video clip documents some of our special moments that were posted on Instagram in 2013.  If you do not already have this social media app, be sure to consider following our journey by searching joannebabalis.  My Instagram account is updated on a daily basis with visuals of our classroom learning.  

In addition to this, it also makes visible my art from the heart.

Art surrounds us if we look closely.  It is present in flower arrangements, photography, culinary delights, architecture, and everyday moments.

I consider Instagram the true picture of who I am, as it includes photos from my professional and personal life. 

My dogs Ruby and Rocky.

Looking forward to connecting with you on Instagram! :)

  1. Thank you for sharing your ideas and passion!
    I have 2 Foxy-Russells (Josie and Dina) and they look like Ruby and Rocky and I teach Kindergarten in Bermuda! Thanks for sharing and inspiring me.

  2. Thank you Susana!

    I appreciate your comment and all the way from Bermuda!! It sounds like we have a lot in common! I love my two Jack Russell Terriers. They are so full of energy and Ruby in particular has the spunkiest little personality!
