My name is Lorissa (L for short) and it's so wonderful to meet you!!
A little bit about myself...
I was born and raised in Southern California -- West Covina to be specific. I officially became a full-time high school English teacher during the 2021-2022 school year after long-term subbing for 2 1/2 years. During my time as a long-term sub, I also taught at an After School program, and as a summer school teacher for elementary, middle, and high school.
Throughout my time in education, I have been introduced to several creative was to integrate technology into the classroom. I love utilizing technology and creative projects to help my students learn, and formulate deeper connections and understanding to the content they are learning. Some of my favorite types of technology include: Kahoot, PearDeck, EdPuzzle, and Google Site (for online projects).
When I'm not in the classroom, I love travelling, fashion on a budget, dance, theater, music, writing, and also blogging!
(Who knew teachers can be bloggers right?!)
I fell in love with skincare and lifestyle blogging shortly after graduating from college and finishing my teaching credential program, and never thought that it would end up becoming both a hobby and a side-career! (Learn more about what I do in the section entitled, "Arbonne") I LOVE helping my students grow to be well-rounded individuals, and am equally passionate about helping teachers and aspiring teachers better their health and feel equipped to succeed both in and OUTSIDE the classroom -- and I'm excited to help you!
Ever since I began my journey towards wellness, I have been amazed at the discoveries I have come across, and the knowledge I have gained. I am passionate about sharing all that I have learned to help YOU fulfill your goals and dreams of living a balanced and fulfilling life!
Be sure to read my blog posts for educational tips, resources, beauty and skincare reviews, and other helpful resources! Every product that I share on my blog I have personally reviewed and use in my weekly regimen. I'm not paid to share reviews -- I do so for the love of helping people find the best products to better their health and live life to the fullest. :)
So, welcome to my blog! I'm thrilled to journey with you!! And I hope that you will find helpful resources from here that will make your life be more fulfilling, and will equip you to be the best you can be to help serve your students!
