I teach 1st and 2nd grade. I am from Michigan and miss living there. I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids, reading, traveling and finding good shows to binge watch on Netflix. :) My favorite things are Diet Dr. Pepper, no ice with vanilla, a really good calorie worthy dessert, kale chips, seeing my kids (my kids and my class kids) laugh and smile, and a solid cup of coffee on a cool fall morning.
