Michelle Alba  I'm bad at hugging.

Celebrating International Women's Day with some of the bravest, most resilient and intelligent women I know.

I just finished teaching a two-day course for my school district. It left me tired, but also incredibly grateful for my education and the opportunities I've had because of it. I'm also grateful for the teacher that knit me wash clothes while I taught. And naps. I'm always grateful for naps.

"Lady Desert: The Venus of Nevada", and Vard.

I turned 33 yesterday, and spent my birthday weekend driving around the Nevada desert looking at land art with my boy.

Celebrating my favorite holiday with my favorite boy.

Some of us are helping to develop communities in Africa, some have 2 sets of twins under the age of 2, some of us checked our student's desks for guns today. We are all on different adventures but it's so good to get together and share stories.

Grad school best friend, Mexico roommate, keeper of some of my greatest secrets, the shoulder I cried on my first year teaching, scooter chauffeur in D.C., and the one who encouraged and joined me in burying a piece of hair in Frida Kahlo's garden. I'm so grateful for this girl.

Why I teach.

I'm the luckiest.


It's good to be back.

The boy bought me a National Parks passport book when we first started dating. During our tour of the southwest this week, we were able to add two more National Parks, one National Monument and a National Historic Site to our books. He's the best adventure partner.
