ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Find out more about me on my blog: http://www.itselementarymydear.com I am grateful for the unrelenting support of my husband, Frank, whom I have been married to for nine wonderful years. As the spouse of a teacher, he endures annual classroom tear-down and set up, cleaning, classroom shopping, and the much-needed emotional support that comes with being a teacher. He, along with my dear toddler son, Grayson, keep me going strong every day. Becoming a mother has completely changed my perspective and has also enhanced my purpose as an educator. This experience as a TPT seller is just another endeavor that my two best buddies will be there to cheer me on throughout.
