I started this blog when I moved out of California to teach for a year. I taught at Pope Hilarius University, in Coldington, a city in the Midwest. (Yes, there was really a pope named Hilarius.) No, there isn't really a Coldington. It began as a blog about my first year of teaching, my first time living outside of California, and my first experience with winter. Now I'm back in California and trying to find my way back to being a full-time teacher again. It was an incredible experience.
