It’s 2022…Where in the World is Teacha Katie?

Nope, there still isn’t an app for that. And I could tell you but I’ll be somewhere else by the time you read this.

So much has changed since March 2020.  COVID for a lot of people has crystallized the notion that you MUST do all those things you’ve always wanted to do with your one wild and precious life.

Though I’ve always excelled at doing what I want, there are things I’ve been sitting on for years because of the work it would require of me.

So, I spent 2021 getting to work. I’ve started my Masters in Education, got serious about making the majority of my income from writing, and set up homeschool exchanges in Central America so I could practice teaching my project based learning curriculum while learning Spanish myself.

It’s been the hardest thing I’ve done in a very long time but it’s allowed me to go to sleep knowing that the things I’m doing everyday align with what I see for my future and the future of Make Our Day.

If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” Gospel of Thomas

We all have those things within us that won’t leave us alone.  Do not wait another year.  The call to bring forth what is within you is not going to go away.  I believe that for me, for you, and for all my munchkins.

I know COVID and the world at large is doing its darndest to keep you stuck but I believe that you can change your life, and you must.

If you’re reading this, you’ve already played a part in changing my life and the lives of my students past, present and future. And I’m so excited for our future.

Es 2022….¿Dónde está Katie en el mundo?

No, todavía no hay una aplicación para eso. Y yo podría decirte pero probablemente estaré en algún otro lado para cuando tu leas esto.

Muchas cosas cambiaron desde Marzo 2020. El COVID para mucha gente significó tener noción de que debes hacer todas esas cosas que siempre quisiste hacer con tu preciada vida,

Aunque he vivido siempre bien en hacer lo que quiero, hay cosas que yo he esperado para hacerlo porque todo el trabajo requería de mi.

Entonces yo pase el 2021 trabajando. Yo he empezado mi Maestría en Educación, a trabajar como escritora por mi cuenta propia, y enseñar en Centroamérica, entonces yo pude aprender español.

Ha sido lo más difícil que he hecho en mucho tiempo, pero me ha permitido irme a dormir sabiendo que las cosas que estoy haciendo todos los días se alinean con lo que veo para mi futuro y el futuro de Make Our Day. 

«Cuando realicéis esto en vosotros mismos, aquello que tenéis os salvará; pero si no lo tenéis dentro, aquello que no tenéis en vosotros mismos os matará>> evangelio de tomas

Tenemos estas cosas dentro de nosotros que no nos deja solos. No esperes otro año . La llamada para traer al dentro de ti no va afuera. Yo creo que para mi, para Ustedes, y para todos mis estudiantes.

Yo se que el COVID y el mundo largo es inmanejable mantener atascado pero yo creo que tu puedes cambiar tu vida y tu debes.

Si tu estas leyendo esto, tu ya has tenido un rol para cambiar mi vida y de mis estudiantes el pasado, el presente, y el futuro. Y yo estoy emocionada por nuestro futuro.

Con mucho amor, Katie

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.
