About

“A Large Cup of Tea and a Long Book” is a blog written by a young Christian woman who is a K-8 English Learner teacher. Cecilia, the blogger, double-majored in Spanish and English during her undergrad years. Now, she has a master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) for the K-12 environment.

She also knits compulsively and dabbles in knitting design. She crochets when the bug bites and is also learning to sew.

The name of the blog comes from a quotation from C.S. Lewis, one of Cecilia’s favorite authors. “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

Cecilia finds this quotation to be quite true and has decided to try to read as many books as possible now that she’s done with college.

Topics frequently mentioned on this blog will be: Christianity, knitting, coffee, tea, sewing, books, teaching, and why coffee really is the summum bonum.

  1. Hi, you don’t know me and I don’t know you, but I found your blog when I was looking up information about the OPI. I read your journal entries (sorry to hear you didn’t pass) and I have pretty much had the same experience with the OPI. My question is, did you ever end up taking again or did you put the spanish on hold? I have been a teacher for 5 years and the last time I felt OPI defeat I put it on hold for almost 2 years, but as I believe it will not leave my life until I can prove to myself I can pass it, it has resurfaced. Just looking to hear your standpoint on the issue as I have went through a similar ordeal. lots of love and luck !! -Jessica
