Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
This year marked the start of my THIRD year of teaching. How crazy is that?! To think I’ve had a career for a third year in a row makes me feel weirdly too grown up. Regardless, this year was special for a couple of different reasons: I didn’t have to find a new job; when I came back to school this year students knew who I was, which is such a nice feeling to have someone say “Hi Mrs. Barium” each time they see me after having chemistry last year; I painted my classroom and it rocks (it’s not perfect, but it rocks!); and I just have this weird sense of calmness about teaching this year.
I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, but it hasn’t. I don’t think it will. It’s nice. I’m not completely overwhelmed and frazzled like I was last year. I have more confidence in what I’m teaching and I’m doing less prep and more grading. Hallelujah!
It just feels nice. So much so, I think I’ll teach for a few more years! 🙂
I wanted to share some photos of my classroom this year! I painted my classroom on the last day of school last year and did some rearranging and additions this year 🙂 It feels SO much better! It’s nice to have a classroom to call my own.
