So as of now, Teacha has left the building. If you had my phone number, forget it. If you are tired of me calling you anyway, rejoice.
Before I left I had the pleasure of rounding up my Fall 2015 Make Our Day staff for a little pre departure pow wow.
This was not a typical meeting as (like everything in my life) like to have everything going on at once. No powerpoints here. Just lots of ideas, lengthy side-notes, a hula hoop, booze, and oh wait, here. There is a method to the madness.
A glance at the table alone will tell you what a Type B can do lacking supervision and traditional workflow structure. The sprawling takeover of the table started innocently enough. Plates. We need plates right, didn’t you read item 1 on the agenda?
And since this meeting concerns Thailand, it would be downright disrespectful, Buddha no happy, to offer any fewer than 5 sauces.
So snacks. (Insert scene from The Jerk..”that’s all I need”)
Then headbands. (snacks and headbands, that’s all I need)
Then the Make Our Day Shop holiday goodies. (ok just these snacks, those headbands…and you get it)
Throw in an abundance of new and foreign (to Teacha) technology including a selfie stick and all bets are off. If you give a Moose a Muffin….you probably shouldn’t come back until she’s finished with it. I hope the person with (moderate…question mark) OCD who generously allowed us to use this room doesn’t see this.
For those of you who haven’t visited the staff page, Morgan and Brittany are actually joining me in Munchkinland starting January 2016, Laura is doing graphic design, and Megan knows stuff.
If you are digging this lucky elephant vibe and are in college, please apply to be a Campus Rep. It’s a pretty sweet gig. I send you free (and wary lucky) clothes made by my friends in Thailand. You wear said lucky clothes and #makeourday. Deal? Dee Mak!

I am originally from Missouri and currently teach English, wrangle Munchkin's, and give hugs in Southeast Asia. I planned on doing the typical backpacker thing for a year or so and moving on.......but 6 years and hundreds of munchkins later, the ride's been anything but "typical". We're still here and still making munchkins' days one hug and high five at a time. Send us a note, some love, or a donation if you're able. Love from Munchkinland, Teacha Katie.
