I always wanted to teach. I love learning and I want to share that love of learning with my students. When I was in high school I thought I wanted to teach business in high school. After taking a break from college to get married, have children, etc., I went back to my original goal of completing my education. I still had a dream of teaching, but I wanted to work with little people who were excited to learn and come to school each day. I've dipped my toe into teaching older classes. I taught middle school math for 4 years and loved making math accessible and fun for those hormonal teenagers. I substitute taught in high school during my track breaks while my own children were in high school so that I could see them in their "natural environment."
I'm truly living my dream teaching elementary school. There are days and weeks where it can be more of a nightmare than a dream, but I truly love what I do.
Now it is time to tackle my other big goals. I'll keep you up to date as I pursue these next personal and professional goals.
