I’m a 5th grade teacher, mom of two, lover of bright colors and overuser of exclamation marks!
I was the only teacher at my grade level, and desperate to connect and learn with other teachers. I started a teaching blog, and then later an Instagram account, and here we are today! I have loved collaborating with teachers all over the world thanks to this online space! It has made me a better teacher, and it’s been so fun to see my ideas and resources used in classrooms all over the world!
Throughout my teaching career I’ve taught at three different schools in San Diego and this year I am sharing a contract, so I teach my students 2-3 days a week, and then the other days I get to work from home to support teachers!
When I’m not teaching, I love spending time with my absolute favorite people: my son Oliver, daughter Madison, and my parents (who I am so grateful that live close by)! It’s been so fun seeing my kids start school and experiencing everything from the parent perspective since I’m so used to being on the teacher-side of things!
In my spare time, I enjoy reading (romcoms have been my favorite recently!), dreaming up fun experiences with my family, and shopping for home decor! I also will never say no to a good charcuterie board!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit! I can’t wait to connect with you!
