My journey began with a dream of becoming a teacher when I was a little girl. I started teaching in a fourth grade classroom. After spending 3 years in the intermediate grades, I requested to move down to primary. For the next 7 years I taught some combination of 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grades, often in a looping classroom.
In 2011 we welcomed our daughter. I spent a year at home with her. This is where my adventures with creating and sharing teaching materials online began. I returned to teaching in 2012 with a second grade classroom. After we welcomed our son in 2014, I decided to stay home once again. I plan to return to the classroom when the time is right for our family. Until that happens, I am enjoying the time I spend volunteering.
