About Me

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I've learned so many great things from visiting the blogs of other teachers throughout this past year. I finally decided to take the step to create my own blog. This coming school year will be my 19th year at large elementary in a small town. I've taught one year of 5th, one year of 4th, and the rest have all been in 3rd grade. Us 3rd grade teachers & 3rd graders are just the oddballs & that works for me. 3rd graders aren't really old enough to fit in with the upper grades, but they're too old to fit in with the lower grades. So we're happy to just be stuck in the middle.

I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 19 years. He is also a teacher in our community. We have two children. Our daughter, Charley,  is 13 and going into 8th grade and our son, Chase,  is 11 going into 5th grade.

We are all huge Disney Fanatics! We've gone every year as a family since Chase was 2.  Just watching the Disney commercials gets us excited about when we can return.

We also love the beach and try to visit a beach at least once a year. Sometimes it's our favorite spot, Myrtle Beach. Other times it's beautiful Silver Beach or Jean Klock Park in Saint Joseph, Michigan.

I have three fur babies. Our boxer, Cooper is by far the most animated. He's pretty sure he is a human and not a dog. 
Dave was a shelter cat that we got when my daughter started kindergarten.We don't suspect that he's real bright, but he's sweet.
Doodle was also a cat we rescued. He was a complete mess & the vet didn't think he'd survive. We've had him 7 years.
