Share Your World Sunday: Week 42

If you haven’t checked out Cee’s magnificent (and I do mean magnificent) blog and photography, you really should. Join in with her Share Your World weekly activities, too! Here are the questions for the week—and my answers, too

  1. It’s a very hot and muggy day. You desperately want something very cool and refreshing to quench your thirst and revitalize your body. What would you drink? I think I would pick icy cold water or some seltzer water. So cool and refreshing!
  2. What do you keep in the trunk of your car? Throughout the week I keep a pile of various textbooks and supplies that I use with various students. I cover a range of ages and topics, so I haul them around and leave them in my trunk all week. For instance, I tutor multiple students for the
    ASVAB (armed services test)–on various days. So those stay in the trunk (along with some Algebra, Geometry, vocab, and grammar books). Then there are the junior high math books (for my junior high students) as well as some other Algebra and Geometry books. Then there are the spanish grammar books. Some of the books come in and out of my house so I can do lesson plans. Plus the markers, whiteboard, paper, and pencils and pens. Friday they all come back in the house to re-configure what I will use each day the following week, as schedules change.
  3. What is your favorite TV show that is currently on TV? I think I will go with Blue Bloods—I love mysteries and I really love the Sunday dinner scenes. I also like NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles. But lately, there hasn’t been much time for watching any of it with my student load!
  4. Is it more important to love or be loved? Definitely to love—because we are called to love God, and our neighbor as ourselves. The love that we give will continue on and on. He, the source of ALL love, keeps us supplied with the desire to love and the ability to love.

Cee–this week’s questions were exceptional!

  1. Wow! Kate did not know you were tutoring what sounds like full time, no?
    I love that your trunk is full of books. Every trunk should have a book in it. Just on principle.Save a book. (sorry Kate.. my silly mood) I do like the idea of a book in the car though, cannot tell you when one would saved passing time more pleasantly.

    Really think your #4 is beautiful ~

      i have been tutoring since 2008 i think–as an independent contractor with WyzAnt. Started doing that because my husband was out of work and other companies wouldn’t hire me because i had been “out of the workforce” (aka home raising my son) for 20 years. I really love it. throughout my life i have tutored (and also taught CCD and done corporate training, and safe environment training). I mostly tutor math—but cover a range of topics and ages. I tutor adults trying to get their GED or pass their ASVAB, college students, all the way down to 1st grade—but right now my students range from 3rd grade to adult learners. i have 22 students right now, which is a huge influx of students this semester.

      sometimes it is busy like it is now and is about full time. other times it is quite part time. this is the busiest i have ever been with it—and i have more adult learners than ever, too. it gives some balance to the efforts. i think today i would like to have a beach chair, blanket, cooler full of berries, bottle of wine, and a sunset—and be heading to the shore. love to you this day dearest one. hugs by the hundreds–kate

    Hey there Kate! Loved your answers. How is it that everyone’s trunk but mine seems so incredibly organized?

    • Kate Kresse says:

      now i didn’t say that the books were organized===sometimes they are in various re-usable cloth shopping bags, sometimes just in a messy pile, sometimes in some boxes…by friday night i am tired of the mess and bring them all inside the house and put them in piles by subject, or back in m bookcase, the ones that fit.

    Hi Kate,

    I enjoyed reading your answers! 🙂 Now, I’m going to Caddo’s place to read her answers! 🙂 Have a wonderful day! May the Lord bless you, abundantly!

    HI Kate, I’m so glad you enjoyed this week’s questions. I loved all your answers. The variety of people you teach is huge. I love that you help that many people. Must make you feel good. Thanks once again for your participation.

    • Kate Kresse says:

      Cee~ i am always so glad to participate in your Share Your World’s. I am horrible, horrible, horrible at multi-tasking—and have a hard time making myself sit down to blog, read, comment, post, take photos, upload—when i am split into so many pieces with so many students. it makes me feel good to teach them, but makes me feel bad to be stretched thin. i get depeleted. i love your and Chris’ approach with the spoons and need to try it. love you
