Have you ever heard the saying, "Time flies when you are having fun?" Well, I am pretty sure that I have been having TONS of FUN teaching because the last 10 years have flown by! I spent the first five years of my career teaching in a mixed age classroom (1st and 2nd grade) and as a Title I Reading Specialist K-5 after receiving my Masters in Teacher Education. Currently I am a second grade teacher at the most AMAZING school, with the most AMAZING students and the most AMAZING teachers!
I love to explore the world with my husband and two children, garden, swim, hike, whitewater raft, fish, ski, mountain bike, camp, create, read, read, and read some more. I am curious about the world and am not afraid to try new things.
Yesterday, while we were doing some science in our front yard my six year old son said "I love that you are a teacher Mama because you think of lots of fun things to do. Just think what we would do if you were a Mad Scientist!"
I am considering becoming a "Mad Scientist!"
