About Me

I’m writing this blog simply to write. Hopefully I’ll make some discoveries along the way. So here’s a little bit about me..

  • Fifth grade teacher in Southern California.
  • Passionate about teaching, reading and writing.
  • Have a love / hate relationship with technology.
  • Happy only when trying to figure something out.
  • Always looking for ways to engage in learning.
  • Believe that passions lead to genius: we just have to get the obstacles out of the way.
  • Need to be active: running, swimming,
  • Mom to very large children (teens and twenty something).
  • Wife to a wonderful human.

Thanks for reading..
