Summer is coming.

Well, actually, summer is here. You all know I can never resist a good Game of Thrones joke.

I’ve missed you all. Teaching and grad school became a bit unruly at the end of the year. I know I’m preaching to the choir on this one, but whew! The end of the year can be stressful!

Ok, not really THAT stressful, but still…

This summer, I’m looking forward to writing more for my lovely little blog. I’m looking forward to sharing resources with you, sharing tips on how to be happy during the summer (that last item didn’t seem right even as I typed it), and sharing stories about things that make me happy. I want to include something else, though…YOU! If you have something that you want me to write about, or something you’d like to share (particularly, something that makes you happy!) please send it to I fully and wholeheartedly believe that a happy, restful summer leads to an amazing school year. So, let’s build a community of happy people this summer!

For now, I’ll leave you with this. Happy Summer!


I have a unique perspective on teaching. As a young guy, I still have that “world is my oyster” perspective on life, so I am more than willing to try new things in the pursuit of happiness. I have always been a naturally happy person and don’t shy away from trying to make others see that it’s easy to be happy! Thus, the blog you’re reading. The main impetus for actually putting all the work in to getting this blog up and running? A coworker stopped me in the hall one day and actually reprimanded me for being so smiley all the time. They actually said that I shouldn’t be so happy as a teacher! My response? Screw that! I SHOULD be happy. I now smile at that coworker EVERY time I see them…and usually say something like, “Isn’t this such great day to be a teacher?!” They don’t usually smile back… Don’t be like them.
