I have been teaching for 23 years and have my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have taught preschool through fourth grade.
I'm passionate about teaching and encouraging children to be the best they can be in life. I feel that teaching is an honor and I always want to have that spark in me that inspires a child.

I blog about teaching and my family. I hope to collaborate with all you wonderful teachers out there. I love God, my family and teaching. I also love to run and swim and do anything crafty!
