I am a wife, mom, and first grade teacher.  I have the best and most rewarding jobs in the world!  I’ve been married for 11 years and we have an 8 year old daughter.  She definitely keeps our lives interesting.  I’ve been a teacher for 16 years – kindergarten and first grade. My kiddos keep me laughing and learning each and every day.  I strive to find the positive in each day and every situation – something my dad has left me with.  All of my posts on this site are my own stories, opinions, and reflections. Hope you enjoy!
