We are about to say Good-bye to this year, 2022, and welcome a new one. It is time for all of us to think about what we did and how it made us feel; to reflect upon our actions and how they affected others.

Were we kind enough? Did we behave well enough? Did we try our best? Did we reach our goals? Did we help our planet, our city, our family, our school, our friends?

These are all questions that we need to answer before a new year begins and if there is more to be done, which I am sure there is, we should write a list of everything we plan to do and how we plan to achieve it.

As for me, I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity life has given me of knowing you, for being in your lives and contributing a bit of wisdom and joy.

I want to leave you with something funny as we end this year, and so I’m including some videos that perhaps will give you a few moments of laughter.

Remember you are always in my heart, even though I am not physically close to you, my heart and my mind are with you and I am sending you tons of hugs and good wishes.

Have a wonderful holiday. Do a kind deed every day, specially for a stranger in need. Make someone happy. Be good sons and daughters, good siblings, grandchildren and friends, and remember to always be the best Earth Managers possible.



The answer is simple: We all do! Humans, animals and plants, in order to live and thrive.

This is the reason it is essential to take care of the water resources we have left in the world.

So now you have an idea of how important water is to our planet, to life, to us!

I am trusting in you and I am sure our Mother Earth will thank you for saving water and being aware of what to do in order to save it and help the whole world!

I thank you!

Earth Managers of 6th., 5th.,4th. and 3rd. Grades

Do you know that YOU can make a very big difference in turning our planet in to a healthy one?

Our planet needs our help and it is up to us to provide it.

After you watch the videos, please discuss the subject with your teachers, with your peers and with your family and think of ways you can make a difference!

We at British American Institute are fully committed to helping Mother Earth in every possible way. All of us can become Earth Managers and become involved in this course of action.

Please, please, share this information and commit yourselves to helping our planet, your future selves will thank you, your children will thank you!

Your teachers will explain and talk to you further about this enterprise and how to go about it. I am counting on you, and I am sure you will make excellent earth managers!



This is a very serious subject and I do hope you all listen and listen well.

Our planet needs our urgent help.

This is a young girl who is completely committed to saving planet Earth, her name is Greta Thunberg, and she is from Sweden.

I want you to listen and after the video discuss the subject with your peers and teachers.

Here at British American Institute we are declaring that all of us: teachers, students, parents, staff, should be and will be Earth Managers. What does it mean?

That we will think of ways to help our planet and take action against all that hurts and destroys it.

Your teachers will help you understand what exactly we can do and how to go about it. But it is of the utmost importance that you, yes, YOU, 5TH. AND 6TH. GRADERS, take this seriously because it will directly affect you and your children, if we continue in this path.

Mother Earth is counting on us, on YOU, to do our very best and become Earth Managers.

Please, please, share this idea and become the greatest earth managers your possibly can. Your future selves will thank you for it!



Hello everyone, what an exciting new school year this will be. I know! How do I know? Because all of us will make it so!

We will learn through happiness, we will work and play and respect each other and we will grow to become better students, children, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters.

First rule: RESPECT ALL

Second rule: BE HONEST

Third rule: HAVE FUN

I am sending you my love as always and tons of hugs!

See you later…alligators!


The Power of Giving

A month ago all of you united for a common purpose: to donate money in order to help out the children of Ukraine. This is called “altruism,” “generosity,” “giving,” and “helping.”

Giving to others enriches our lives, we feel useful, we feel compassion and empathy and we turn into much better human beings because of this.

There is always someone who needs help, and we should always find ways of giving. It doesn’t have to be money. It can be toys we don’t use any more, or clothes and shoes that no longer fit, or extra food we have in the kitchen cabinet, or books we have already read. But mostly, we should give our love those who need it.

I feel very proud of you for making an effort to help the children of Ukraine who are suffering so much because of the war. Thousands and thousands of them had to leave their homes, schools, relatives in order to flee to other countries and be safe. Can you imagine how difficult that would be for you?

We are very thankful to you and your parents for reaching out and helping the children of Ukraine.

“No one has ever become poor from giving.

Anne Frank

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.

Winston Churchill

“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.

H. Jackson Brown Jr.



Let’s Help!

Two years went by as we were confined to our homes, trying not to catch the Covid Virus. Many people did catch it, fortunately most people have survived.

We should be extremely grateful that we have our basic needs: home, food, health, family and a school were we can be happy again. Being here, among your classmates and teachers is a blessing indeed.

There are children in another part of the world who are not as fortunate as you are, as we are.

The children of Ukraine have been living very difficult circumstances.

Perhaps you have watched the news on TV, or have heard adults talking about what is happening in that country.

It would be wonderful if all the people of the world lived in peace.

Can you think of ways to create peace in the world?

How do you think peace begins?

What can you do as children to promote peace?

Some years ago we got together to send aid to the children of Iran; we donated money to an organization called White Helmets, do you remember?

Now is the time to unite again and practice our generosity and be compassionate towards other children who need our help.

We are trying to find out what is the best way we can help the children of Ukraine, and as soon as we know we will inform you and your parents. I hope you find it in your heart to be kind.

Do not hesitate to talk to your parents about your feelings. If you have a question, ask. Always ask.

You are always in my heart and send you lots of virtual hugs and best wishes.




Hello my dear students,

Please forgive me for not writing this blog in a very long time. I apologize, but my excuse is that I am now a full-fledge grandmother who is helping take care of her two grandsons.

You are always in my heart, and I haven’t forgotten you! I write today because I know you will go on a Christmas Holiday tomorrow and I want to wish you joy, health and love!

I will be much more present starting next year, and I hope you read the blog and post comments.

I will also be there to see you at the end of January, and will visit you in your classrooms. The only sad thing is that I won’t be able to see all of you, because of the hybrid program. This is why you should read my blog and post comments, in order to stay in touch.

There are some of you who are new to the school and have not been able to really know me. Ask your classmates, they can tell you, I am sure, that I truly care about you!

Stay healthy and be careful.

With all my love.

Here are some movies that I can recommend you watch during the holiday:

12 Dog Days Till Christmas

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer

One Magic Christmas

Miracle on 34th Street

Mickey’s Christmas Carol

Merry and Loving Christmas from my family to yours!
