Life: It's Changed DRASTICALLY!

Been a long time since I've been here. It's weird-I'll be doing my thing on Pinterest, and my blog will show up in my news feed. I'm glad some people enjoy what I post here!

SO much has changed in the last several months. Currently, I am enjoying the end of my summer break/maternity leave by staring at my 4 month old in the monitor while he naps! Yes, I survived being pregnant while teaching-literally, I worked until my due date...and he was 1 day late! Talk about close call!

Here's a picture of our cute lil guy when he was born, and him at 4 months old you can drool over :)

Literally, the time has FLOWN by! I can't wait to share lots of stories here about him, and also to share with you the joys and challenges of being a working mom.

Secondly, I'm going to begin a new journey of my teaching career. I will be starting a new teaching job at Westlake Academy, an all IBO World School. Man-the decision to leave CHS was a tough one; I LOVE LOVE LOVE Coppell! It's my home away from home! But after lots of conversations and prayer, it felt right to begin a new chapter at Westlake. 

I am going to be teaching 7th grade MYP Science and 9th grade MYP Biology. I am incredibly sad to leave CHS. It's going to feel so weird to start school at a different place, but I am looking forward to being in a K-12 IB school close to home!

Coppell friends and coworkers-I am forever grateful for those of you who poured into me as a new teacher, who helped guided me into who I am as a teacher today. I have grown leaps and bounds because of many of you and I owe you everything! So grateful to so many of you!

Now, time to enjoy a few more snuggles with the lil man before school starts!


  1. Congratulations Rhoda! Your little guy is so handsome :) best of luck in your new school. .. you are going to rock this! It might take you a lil time to balance your home life and your school life, but it will happen. With twin 3 1/2 year olds and a five month old, there are times when I feel like the worst mom. Then there are times when I feel like the worst patient. .. It'll all work out :)

    1. Thanks Jen! I hope you have a great start to the school year! :)

  2. Mrs. Hahn, I try want to thank you. You opened the subject of science to me in a way no one else had, and you changed my life in the process. Because of you, my passion for science has never beeen greater. Whenever I think of you as a teacher, I think of that one quote in Dead Poets Society, where Robbin Williams tells his students "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary" So Mrs. Hahn, as you embark on your journey towards a new school, I challenge unto you this: seize the day, make your life extraordinary. I'll truly miss you Mrs. Hahn, and I truly wish you the best of luck at your new school.

    Carpe diem, Mrs. Hahn, carpe diem.

    1. Rishi, I'm so proud of how far you've come in my class! You've learned so much. You were always willing to take on new challenges, you were open to new ideas, and you brought your own ideas to the classroom. Thank you for leaving me such a nice note! I'll miss seeing you at CHS and I hope that you always strive to do your best (I know you will!). Stay in touch. Let me know if you need any help down the road! And like you say most appropriately-Carpe diem! I'm excited to see what great things you continue to do!
