Hi there! I am what you would call a "career" teacher. I've taught pre-school thru ninth grade along my journey with the exception of second and fourth. Don't know how I have missed out on those but you never know what's to come. For the last 4 years I have been teaching and loving third grade. When someone asks me which grade I like best, I have to say all of them. Truly each grade brings joys and challenges, but I just love each stage of child development( and yes, that actually includes middle schoolers!). My husband is in the education field also as principal of a middle school. We have three grown children whom we adore.
