My husband is the love of my life and my best friend. I am the mother of five amazing kids, and just added an equally amazing son-in-law to the mix. Summertime at the lake with my family, a good book, and a diet coke make me smile. I have taught first grade for 10 years! Children are my favorite size of people. I relish the magic that occurs each day in a first grade classroom and believe that teachers who love teaching, inspire students to love learning!
