I began my teaching career in Fall 2007 and love learning with my students every day. I love challenging myself and sharing my ideas on TPT and on my blog are the perfect challenge for me. I am inspired by all of the creative teachers out there and thankful that you are all willing to share your wonderful ideas, too!
