About

I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Central Florida. I have been teaching for twelve years and am a National Board Certified Teacher. I am also the mother of two preschoolers, but have significantly less experience at that job. While I have been a traditional teacher for most of my career, I am trying to find ways to make what I am teaching more relevant to my students (and to me). I am trying to balance what I want to do with what I am required  to do. I am trying to move from the teacher I used to be to the teacher I hope my kids get when they are in school. I am trying to all of this with little free time and no money. I am a teacher in transition.

  1. having children does change you for life. I did. I taught elementary before I had my own babies and now I teach Secondary with my now older babies. (14 and 16) I joke that I will follow them to University as did John Adams mother. They are actually comfortable with the idea.

  2. I hope we get to read more from you =).

  3. I’m not even sure how I found you on Twitter, and then stumbled into your blog, but I’m glad I found you. Love your ‘from the trenches’ teacher voice!
