I have an amazing little family that is just full of awesome. I had so, so much fun home schooling my stepdaughter for 4 years. She has now gone back to school outside of the home as she wants to pursue performing arts school for her incredible talent with music. I'm looking forward to putting all of the things I've learned about teaching middle school math, language arts, and science out in the world for other teachers to enjoy!
