I am a mother of two rambunctious, amazing boys who regardless of how I am feeling in the midst of a brutal battle over a lego or matchbox car, are really amazing boys! I am fortunate to have found my soul mate, and my best friend who is also my husband of almost 10 years, although we have known each other for over 16 years. We enjoy spending time with our boys, going on adventures, and learning something new each and every day.
I have been a teacher for 10 years, focused primarily in High School teaching English, Social Studies, Drama, and Art, and any course option in those areas. I have also dabbled in the administrative side of things, and curriculum development for a large comprehensive school district. I now devote my professional time as the Academic Dean, English and History teacher for a private school on the island of Maui, continually working towards implementation of best practice and student driven assessments.
I am moving towards developing my skills as a writer, to share my experiences, and knowledge on life and education. Looking forward to using this blog as a way to share my ideas and hopefully empty some of the mental file cabinets.
