About Me

"And above all watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Roald Dahl

Well, I'm trying to keep a blog so that I can document my adventures over the next few years as well as keep in touch with friends and family that I might not talk to as much as I'd like. The Jesye basics are:        

  • Graduate from Alfred University
  • 4th Grade teacher
  • Resident of Milan, Italy
  • Still not a fabulous Italian speaker
  • Maybe a teensy bit overemotional sometimes
  • Lover of Harry Potter, being crafty, and drinking too much coffee
  • Travel enthusiast but solo-travel newbie
  • I'm attempting to keep a teacher blog!


  1. Hi Jesye,
    Like you I'm a teacher and a blogger who has just moved to Milan. Unlike you, I'm not 23 and I won't be teaching in Milan. I look forward to following your adventures and I hope that you enjoy your new city. So far we love it. If you'd like to visit, my blog is www.ourmilantransfer.blogspot.com

    All the best with your new class.

  2. Hi Jesye- I just wanted to introduce myself- I found your blog recently. I'm an American expat who also moved to Milan last year. My kiddos go to ASM, but are in the upper school. Love reading about your experience and seeing where you have visited. Your Target post made me laugh out loud- because I can SO relate. ha! I'm blogging our family's adventures at www.cafecarlson.com if you want to stop by sometime. -Heather

  3. Hi Jesye, I got twinkled on a social media website and I didn't know what does that mean ! When I Googled the word, your blog came up. Just that you know :)
