Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

I don't know where you are going this summer, but I know where I will be and I hope you'll join me at one of my summer camps! 

June 21-22, Phoenix, Arizona

July 26-27, Albany, NY

August 2-3, Manchester NH
We'll sing, dance, do crafts, and make new friends. And, I promise you'll be more excited about starting the new school year because of all the new activities you'll learn.


My sister used to have a sign on her refrigerator that said, "If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." I want YOU to be happy because then your students will be happy!  Come to Summer Camp and you'll remember how much FUN teaching can be!
