This is the kind of place that harkens back to days gone by. It is a throwback to all that is good about America. Going strong for 63 years, Shorty's Donut and Diner is the oldest restaurant in Texarkana. Every Monday through Saturday, beginning at 5:00 a.m., patrons file through the doors of the Texarkana staple. There are no frills or hype at this diner because that would take away from its down-home, what-you-see-is-what-you-get vibe, but customers are guaranteed a piping, hot cup of coffee and breakfast cooked to order by a staff who loves what they do.
Excited, exhausted, anxious, stressed, overwhelmed, and nervous… these are a few of the many feelings teachers feel the night before school starts. Some of these emotions may come across as negative, but I want to create a safe, perfect, and inviting classroom (home away from home) for my students. I spend countless hours preparing and planning for the big day! This will be our "happy place" together for the next nine months. I am beginning the 26th year of my teaching career. I have taught kindergarten through fourth grade, including all subjects.
