My name is Michelle, and I am a 2nd Grade Teacher in Illinois (formerly Kindergarten, formerly Wisconsinite). I drink a lot of coffee, watch a lot of buzzworthy TV & Movies, and pretend to enjoy running. I’m the kind of person that dresses in costume whenever possible. I am also that person who has an Instagram account for their dog (@cooper_the_boxerdog). I have a funny and smart husband who loves the Packers and Forrest Gump. My classroom is loud and student-centered, best described as organized chaos- and that’s how I thrive.
