I am in my 16th year of teaching first grade. It is the only grade I have ever taught and it is my passion. Our district's kindergarten classes are still half day (with partner teachers) so when my first graders walk through the door, it is a BIG deal. I love to see them grow and progress. I never want them to grow IN HEIGHT, though! I am short (a teeny tiny teacher) and a couple of first graders over the years have come pretty close to being taller than me!
I am married to a wonderful man who supports me in all of my endeavors. We have been together for 21 years and we just celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary. We love the Dodgers, watching movies, going on trips, and hanging out with family and friends.
This is us at a 50th wedding anniversary for Steve's great aunt and uncle. Now THAT'S inspiring!
We have a furry little girl -- Murphie.
And the ones who came before her.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope I can share as much as all of you have shared with me! Happy Blogging!
