I've been teaching for 13 years in elementary school. Before that I was a music teacher - free lance for 7 years. I've been a mom for 34 years too...and that counts!
Just started creating power points since I got an Elmo. I enjoy creating them, but mostly I love the renewed interest the kids have when I start one. Of course, I always follow with checking for understanding. However, the level of attention from my kids really increases with these.

I returned to university I was 40. Got my bachelor and teaching certification part time while raising my 4 children. I have worked in the same school district for the last 13 years keeping with my education and adding classes every year. I love my job.
I was raised in Belgium, and married a wonderful US guy. I returned to university after when my 4th baby was about 3 years old. Got my bachelor at 48 and has been teaching with enthusiasm since. I love my job.
