Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

Back At It…The Classroom in Pictures

Written by Katie. Posted in Teaching

Here’s a quick tour of my Montessori classroom.  We start out with minimal materials on the shelves, and as more materials are presented, they are added to the shelves.  By the end of October, the shelves are full of Montessori materials (and the intro materials are put away).   I’m excited for the year ahead!

    I LOVE your classroom! I am so incredibly happy that I found your blog. Your story sounds so very similar to mine and I feel like I can relate to you in so many ways. Currently, I am trying to student teach and it brings along many difficulties and barriers due to the crappy health that you know all to well… It’s nice to see someone accomplishing their dream of teaching, which in return gives me high hopes for the future!!!!!

    I wish you all the best 🙂

      Hi Erin! Thanks so much for the message! When I was on medical leave and barely able to function, I used to try and find success stories of people with POTS and EDS who were able to teach. I totally understand what you mean by the importance of hope! I wish YOU all the best and am glad we were able to connect! Zebras need to stick together…Especially teaching zebras! 🙂

      Let’s stay in touch,
