I love teaching! Even after 20 years in the elementary classroom, I still love being in the classroom every day. I've taught many elementary grades, but fifth grade is my favorite! Fifth graders are happy to be at school, independent, are fun to be around, and definitely have personality. They even understand my jokes (usually)!
I am also a mom of 4 boys and have been happily married for 20 years. I love baking (cookies, mostly), playing piano, coaching basketball, jogging, teaching youth Sunday School, and camping.
Thank you for visiting my store! I hope you enjoy my elementary creations. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or requests.
