I love the history of St. Augustine. From the old fort to the historic streets, the oldest city in America inspires me in so many ways.
Upon entering downtown this week, I noticed a change in the landscape. Turns out El Galeon has docked in celebration of St. Augustine's 450th. What a beautiful surprise.
As I watched the crew ready the ship for visitors, my mind was drawn to my students and their adventures. I wonder, what surprises have you stumbled upon this week during spring break?

Okay, kiddos. You know Mrs. B can sometimes be a fan girl. While it can be a little nerdy at times, my "fangirl" problem often opens doors for me or inspires me to do something different. Recently, during a particularly exciting fangirl moment, one of my heroes in education reached out to me (see picture). All I can say is, WOW. I was so excited.
Of course, in true Mrs. Barrett fashion, I immediately thought of you guys. I wonder, if you had a hero reach out to you, who would it be? Comment here and let me know.
