First of all, thank you for taking the time to check out my blog! I appreciate you reading my thoughts, and hope you will follow me so we can share insights together!
A little about me...
I graduated from The University of Northern Iowa in December 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and received endorsements in Reading K-8 and English/Language Arts K-8. I student taught in 1st grade, then in 5th grade. I learned so much from both of my placements!
I was bummed when I didn't get offered a position after the first round of bids. A week later, I received the best phone call ever from my Human Resource Director telling me I could have my pick of 3 elementary positions, because I was the only internal applicant. Without hesitation, I accepted my dream job: 3rd grade in a building that I love. Not only did I attend 2nd-5th grade at this school, but I also did my first placement for student teaching here. I was fortunate enough to teach some of my firsties from ST in third grade during the 2014-15 school year! I also am very honored to call 2 of my former teachers, and my former principal COLLEAGUES! How lucky am I?!
When I'm not busy teaching, I'm busy coaching. I'm entering my 4th season as the Winter Cheerleading Coach for my district's high school. I have 5 squads: Freshman Basketball, Sophomore Basketball, Varsity Girls Basketball, Varsity Boys Basketball, and Varsity Wrestling.
In the little spare time I do have, I like to spend it with my fiance and our dog, Maxwell, just relaxing at home. OUR HOME! In summer 2013, we bought our first house!
Jason popped the question July 23, 2014.
We became husband and wife June 12, 2015, at Eagle Ridge Spa & Resort in Galena, IL.
I hope this blog inspires you, gives you tips, and makes you remember why you went into the greatest profession in the world!
