I am first and foremost a mother of two and a wife, but my extended family is also a driving force in my life. It is my family that has supported my educational growth throughout the years. This support is what allowed me to become an educator 16 years ago, and to be able to remain in the profession that I have been called to and truly enjoy.
I have recently been reassigned to a different grade level and subject area. For nearly the past ten years I have been teaching eighth graders earth science and math. Next year I will be teaching seventh graders life science and writing. I feel confident in my teaching abilities - it is the content area that worries me. I guess I will definitely be learning along with the children this year.
