Teacher Week: Let's Talk About Me

Happy Teacher Week friends!

We're kicking off the week with a bit about me.
Well, to start off, I have been teaching for six years. 
(seriously, where does the time go?) 
 I have spent all six of those years teaching second grade. I just adore those kiddos! 
 I am finishing up my masters in reading this year (yay!) 
& I was just recently certified as a reading specialist. 
I married my best friend in October of 2010. It's hard to believe we'll be celebrating 
3 years in just a few short months. Time sure flies when your heart is full!
Outside of teaching, I love going on adventures near & far: exploring new places in our city, back packing in Northern Michigan, spending time outdoors & taking in the beauty that surrounds us. 

Photography has also become a hobby of mine.  I love toting my camera around on our adventures and capturing the greatness that we come across.

I absolutely love spending time with family.  I have a great big family: 2 brothers and 2 sisters, with 7 nieces & nephews from them. I just love it! 

I also have a really close group of friends, incredible friends that make life happier. 
I also have a passion for interior design.  I have always said that if I had not become a teacher I would have been an interior designer. So while, my heart is in second grade, I use my love for interior design by decorating my home.

So there you have a bit about me. 
 Be sure to check back throughout the week as Teacher Week '13 continues!


  1. Umm..your home looks amazing! I'm a pinterest interior designer at the moment. That is, most of my designs are still in my head and pinned on my Home Decor board, haha. I really look forward to moving so I'll have a clean slate to work with and begin some of the projects I've pinned. :)
