Hi I’m Jessica! I teach 9th and 10th grade English Language Arts. Yes, most of my day is spent with 15-year-olds, so please pardon the slang that may appear in this blog.

I started gardening in my backyard about 4 years ago, and I love it! Weeding, watering, and general upkeep of my plants has been an incredible outlet for me. And I get to eat delicious tomatoes.


I’m getting married in July! If you couldn’t tell by my picture, I’m a black woman. My future husband is a white man. For some reason, we’ve encountered a lot of people who have a problem with this, or, at the very least, find it incredibly odd. So I’ll be writing about that too.

12My other interests include hanging out with my Boston Terrier, putting together new outfits, and watching a lot of Royals and Chiefs games.

  1. Hello…..thanks for visiting my blog and the like!! I love gardening too but it has to be on a small scale as I live in a flat on the 7th floor…..but that has not discouraged me yet!!
    Wow!! Getting married….exciting times ahead then. I can’t believe that people have a problem with your future husband being white…..caste and colour are still so much an issue in society…..you must write about it………..I wish you all luck and happiness in your future together!!
