From Chopsticks to Mason Jars


That is a picture of my new mason jar cup – a purchase I made during my transition from China to the Delta. I am now officially in the Mississippi TFA Corps! It is really exciting to be in a place that is warm and welcoming – not to mention a place that has people who speak my language. I loved China, but I guess it is time for a new step in my life.

This week I attended induction, which is where new corps members get introduced to their new roles in their placement areas. I have enjoyed meeting awesome people from across the U.S. who are going to work hard for the children of Mississippi. We had the opportunity to visit the community of Belzoni, MS – My highlight of the week! (click the link to read more)

Over the next several weeks I will be going through training to make me an even better teacher. I hope to keep you updated along the way. However, I will probably be updating my TFA blog – Jazzy Jottings more frequently during institute. Be sure to check it out as well!

  2. Hi,

    I’d like to start by saying that your Blog looks great!!! My name is Martin and I’m a teacher from Canada. I just started a new website called Resources4teaching where educators can buy and sell lessons and educational resources. We are new and are looking for people to join and put up their materials for sale on our website. We are having an iPad draw for the first 100 Vendors who join and upload at least 1 lesson /resource for sale on our website. There are absolutely no fees to join and you get to keep 70% of the profit. You can visit us at:

    If you know any other teachers who might be interested in this Website, please forward this to them and if you have any questions, feel free to message me.

    Have a great day

  3. Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another
    platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
