I am finally jumping in now that I have some free time this summer. I have been busy babysitting my grandson and chauffering my son to baseball games and driver's ed.
This is will be my
21st year of teaching. I taught fifth grade for one year and have been
lucky enough to be in third for 19 years. I began teaching in a dual
language class. I taught the English component of the curriculum for 7
years. I loved it! But I needed a change so I packed up and moved
schools. I was fortunate enough to get a third grade position at an
AWESOME school where I met my very best friend, Lisa. We have been
together now for 13 years and we are inseparable.
is a family profession. My husband, daughter, son-in-law, twin sister,
2 brother in-laws and a few nieces and nephews all teach. You can
imagine the discussions at holiday get-togethers. I think my father
started it all, he was a community college teacher for many years.
am a very family oriented person. Because most of my family members
are teachers we spend a lot of time together during the holidays and
summer. I am a very lucky person!
