About Me... Personally
My career as a kindergarten teacher is very important to me, but above that comes my greatest accomplishment: my family. My soul mate hubby and I met in college and were married our senior year. We have two beautiful girls. They are the light of my life and keep me on my toes for sure! I hope to raise them as southern belles, true ladies with grace and charm. But let's face it, playing in the mud and covering themselves in Popsicle juice is more their definition of fun. At least for now. We choose to enjoy the little things and cherish ordinary moments as a family, for in the end they make up the big picture of life!
I grew up in a small Texas town where there wasn't much else to do but work hard. I graduated with only 17 classmates. Working hard helped me earn my way to Henderson State University, renowned for their Teacher's College program and historically specializing in education. I had an incredible undergraduate experience tailoring every course study to relate to early childhood education. God truly put people, places, and events in my path to build me up as an educator. Can you find me on the front row? (Note: my twin sister is in the picture too!)
My Career in Education
My dream job was always to teach kindergarten at my small little hometown school. After graduation, that became a reality. I LOVE my job as the only kindergarten teacher. I have an incredible autonomy that helps me make decisions for the best interests of my students, however sometimes I do long for that team atmosphere most other kinder teachers have in larger districts. My twin sister is the only first grade teacher as well at our school, and I must say, we make an awesome team! Here we are on the first day of school 2014.
My faith is anchored to the hope I have in Jesus Christ. I hope you will see Him through my posts and personality. He is my guide and comfort, a true living God. Blogging and connecting online with other teachers has been my dream, and I dedicate all efforts to Him. Psalm 37:5 Says, "Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass." I leave you with my favorite verse and hope you enjoy this blog!
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the , thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. - Jeremiah 29:11
