5 Fun Ways to Wrap Up the School Year

5 fun and easy ways to wrap up the school year in your upper elementary classroom!

5 Reminders for when Teaching Gets Tough

Teaching is a tough job, but it's worth it. Here are 5 reminders for the inevitable days when teaching gets tough.

Blueberry Buckle - Muffin in a Mug

This Blueberry Buckle Muffin in a Mug is the perfect one-serving breakfast for busy mornings!

Plus, with just my son and I at home in the morning, it feels a little silly to cook breakfast for just me and a toddler who may or may not decide to eat what I make today. A muffin in a coffee mug is a great one-serving breakfast that I can whip up on busy mornings with ingredients I always have on hand in my pantry. (And this one is a winner with my son, too!)
