Mother of 6 and Teacher of 5 of the most amazing children on the planet! I have 4 sons, ages 19, 17, 15 and 12. I have 2 daughters, ages 12 and 7. I have now taught every grade PreK through 12th to at least one child and have taught several of those grades to multiple children. Every year and every child is a unique experience! Our oldest son and student graduated with honors from high school May 2017 and is now a freshman attending the University of Tennessee Knoxville on academic scholarship, studying Construction Science in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. I think I learn more from them everyday than I could ever hope to teach them! I think you only stop learning when you are no longer breathing! In my "former" life (before children!), I worked for a nationally-known Christian publisher as a freelance Editor after working full-time for several years as an Assistant Editor. Before that, I worked for Service Merchandise in their Advertising department, which is where I learned I love graphic design!
