I graduated with an undergraduate degree in social work. I was a music major as well for 3 of those years. Afterwards I moved from Wisconsin to Montana and worked as an orthodontic assistant and eventually a newspaper advertising executive in Missoula, Montana. After 10 years there and 3 children under the age of 4, my family and I moved to Houston, Texas where I worked on my masters in elementary education. After working as a third grade team leader and teacher for over 24 years, I hope I can help others with ideas I have used in my classroom!
