These items have been delivered to my classroom and more are on their way!
Update: Thank you for all your support! I promise not to spam you with this, I’m planning on going ahead and buying most of what’s still on the list by Monday. I’m so excited for this year!

I’ve been in a tiny village in Turkey. Here’s my husband’s 400+ year-old ancestral house. They were ethnic Turks in the Russian empire and were forced out in the 1500’s. They ended up in here. We’re ten minutes from the Black Sea.
Update: I am much better, but still stuffy. I’m currently waiting at SFO armed with a ton of cold medicine. Istanbul in about 15 hours!
I just got home after 17 days in Oregon and I leave for Turkey on Friday.

Update: They are restoring it!

Hasta Muerte is a POC and cooperatively owned coffee shop/community space in Oakland that recently made news for its policy of refusing to serve uniformed police officers.
So, thanks for all the input about my summer travel plans.
So... my husband got the last two weeks of July off of work and I no longer need to go to PD in mid-July.
