What gets you excited to get out of bed? I’m talking jumping up with a smile on your face when your alarm goes off – like it’s Christmas morning kind of happy. That’s how I feel about teaching! It is an absolute passion of mine and one of the things I love most in my life, after my adorable daughter and husband of course. : ) I always knew, even as a girl tomboy, playing school with my little sister that I wanted to be a teacher. Growing up in a small town in Southwest Michigan, who would have thought that I’d end up in Atlanta teaching 2nd and 3rd graders? When I’m not traveling, boating, going to the beach, kayaking, bike riding, zip lining, enjoying photography, shopping, running, or Pinteresting, phew…I’m updating this website to bring you easy and practical tips and tricks you can use in the classroom! My journey as an educator has taken me to lots of cool places and in front of some of the best students a teacher could ask for. I love approaching each year with new fun, lots of adventures, and even bigger milestones for my students to achieve. This website is a culmination of my joys of teachings and all of those crazy life lessons I’ve learned along the way. I hope you can use it as a resource, source of inspiration, or just for good reading when you have time!
