After presenting at TxGoo, a tweet notified me that I’d been mentioned in a blog post by Virginia Stout as she reflected on the conference. I’m so flattered, but even more…I’m ECSTATIC that she was excited by my presentation and already planning on how to use what she learned over […]
While scrapbooking, I came across this photo from 2009…my husband had come by my office and left a little surprise for me. Once you get over the ANCIENT laptop I was using…the importance of love and support from our family members is just so apparent. I am blessed to have […]
Wearing our shirts in support of my dear friend, Shelly Brookman. Kick cancer’s butt, Shelly! We love you!
My husband and I had the honor of meeting LTC. Allen West (Ret.) during the Joshua High School Navy Ball. We were there supporting our sons who are cadets in the program and both on the Armed Drill team. The NJROTC program at Joshua HS is exemplary and the evening […]
Forced into bifocals to be able to read my screen. Sigh. I knew this day was coming…but I put up a good fight.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Estes Bunch!
That’s all you have to do.
And you just have to brag.
What do you do when the water main on your street breaks? You wear a cute beret over your mess of curly hair. Throw on some big hoop earrings, call it Beatnik, and go to work!
Happy first day of school to my boys! Go forth and learn…change the world!
Just had to share some wonderful photos of my beautiful new grandson, Aiden. Hooray!
Just want to thank my Grandmother, Shirley Raab…and all of my family members – father, uncles, brothers, cousins, husband, and son…who have served in the military. Thank you for your service.
Just doing some digital scrapbooking with some of the most amazing ladies I’ve ever met! So blessed to have friends like Suzanne Robinson, Lisa Pilgrim, and Shirley Dalby! Love this crew!
What do you do when you’ve got to take your kids to the doctor…but you want to learn about a new app? MASH UP! And let the silliness ensue.
My school district surprised the heck out of my by putting my face up on a billboard! The electronic billboard on 174 and I-35 has congratulations on it for my IT of the Year award! WHOA! Such a surprise and very humbling! Thank you, BISD! You’ve given my mom something […]
I’m happy to announce my official initiation into Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education. I was asked to join the Lamar University chapter and have completed all of the requirements for membership! Woot! Feelin’ kinda Old School! You’re my boy, Blue!

Introduced my boys to Spirograph (couldn’t believe Hobby Lobby had one!) this week. Sometimes…it’s just awesome to go old school. They were fascinated…mesmerized…frustrated that I was BETTER at it than them! Ha ha! Sometimes it’s good to just kick it old school and unplug.
My gear for TCEA! Love my fangirl shirts!
Shut up! I won!!! I got Instructional Technology Specialist of the Year from TCEA! I can’t believe it! So stinkin’ awesome!!! I was really nervous and didn’t know if I’d win…but I did! Have to thank the amazing teachers and administrators that I work with every day! I couldn’t do […]
While this is the first time I’ve mentioned that I’m reading this book…this is most definitely NOT going to be the last time I mention it. I thought I wanted to work at Google before…but after reading about the inner workings of the company, their belief systems, and their processes…I […]
Chopped off the long hair and got a new color! Just thought I’d share the new look!
Every year, the 5th graders at my son’s elementary school do a living museum. They get to be famous people in history and when you push a button (or move an object in their display), they come to life and tell you about themselves. The script is pre-written from research […]
