Mrs. Teacher

I am "Mrs. Teacher". I have always wanted to be a teacher and now I'm living my dream! I am married, have two miniature- Dachshunds and twenty-one (borrowed) children. 
2010 year was my first year teaching and I taught in a small rural town in South Carolina. Due to budget cuts, my job was cut and I was (luckily) able to find an awesome job closer to home!
I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BA in Elementary Education in 2009 and have had quite an interesting journey. 
I love teaching. It is my passion and the one thing in life that I know I am good at! You can find me any week day standing in the middle of the chaos that is their learning, with a smile on my face, and loving every single second of it!

Something random about me:

I like to read, but I hate (with a passion) assigned reading. Weird, huh?
