Here is a poem I wrote for my mom last Mother’s Day. Enjoy and celebrate!
One moment solidifies the connection for a lifetime.
I was brought into life within you.
Two hearts beating as one.
You loved me before even seeing me.
Then loved me even more when you finally did.
Two eyes connecting within the white, sterile room.
You were my life source, my protector.
As the years flew by,
You stayed by my side.
Showing me the beauty and horror of this life.
Teaching me to live and explore my inner self.
Believing in me when no one else did.
Supporting me through my bad decisions,
As well as the good ones.
Although now separated by distance,
I feel more connected to you than ever.
I am told I have your eyes, compassion, and beauty.
We are now two best friends exploring the world together.
I get to take care of you, like you took care of me.
I love you, Mom.
In my graduate program, I have learned about numerous online communities for educators to interact with their students, such as Edmodo, Blackboard, Ning, and Schoology. I have to say that out of all of these great community spaces, I must say that Schoology is my favorite. Check out my PowerPoint on the Professional Development I developed for teachers at an alternative High School in North Bergen.

This is a remix video I created for a school project. Please check it out! This is also a great project idea that could be utilized in any school-age classroom!
