August Break 2017

I hope everyone had a great break! I really enjoy traveling over breaks. (In April I went to Colorado, December I went to Mexico, and last August I went to Canada and a bike trip with my mom) This break was spent mostly in Pittsburgh resting, going to Sandcastle and biking.

I did return to my hometown Jefferson City Missouri to experience the solar eclipse. We saw totality!
The path of totality going through Missouri. My hometown is also the state capitol.

A total solar eclipse! I took this with my phone and the glasses.

The "Bordner Point"

I'm looking forward to a new school year and sharing in learning with students!

Looking back now that the year is over and I scroll through the videos and photos and projects of the year, I wish I had done a better job of telling the class of 2019 how impressed I was with their talent and creativity. It was truly a pleasure to work with them!
