I'm in my 13th year teaching, and for all but one of those years I've taught 3rd grade. (I looped up with my kids to 4th grade two years ago...definitely a good learning experience for all of us!) I've taught both Math and Reading when we were departmentalized, but now we're back to self-contained and I'm loving it!
I moved out to Colorado for grad school, completely unaware of the hidden secret that the weather here is AMAZING and it's the best place to live! (Oops, I just gave it away...)
My dog Tucker is my partner in crime and the perfect Colorado dog...hiking and swimming are two of his favorite things in life. And I also end up throwing a lot of tennis balls. A lot.
As much as I love Colorado, a piece of my heart will always belong in Northern Michigan. Summer break is perfect for a yearly road trip to my happy place!
