I have been teaching for the past 21 years. It's hard to believe it has been that long! I have taught 7th, 5th, 3rd, and now 2nd grade, and I have loved every one of them.
I live in California with my wonderfully supportive husband, two girls, a dog, cat, and a bunny who likes to travel to school with me everyday.
I never questioned what I wanted to be when I grew up. As a little girl, I would play school with my dogs and stuffed animals. I've had many great teacher role models, but it was my mother who showed me what a gift teaching truly is. She always made teaching look like it was so much fun. It's my profession, but I also consider it my favorite hobby!
I love to find new ways to teach creatively and engage all of the learners in my classroom. I have been given so much amazing inspiration from other bloggers, and I hope you can take away some ideas from me.
