* Two kids- Jackson and Maddie (2nd grade and Pre-k)
*My husband, Darren, is a farmer
I spend most of my free time hanging out with my kids and my mom. She's my best friend.
I love to cook & watch cooking shows.
My new year's resolution is to be more organized.
Who am I?
I am a 4th grade teacher at St. John-Hudson Elementary School.
This is my 4th year teaching 4th grade.
I used to teach 5th/6th grade ELA, but I love having a contained classroom with the same students all day long.
I am in my 6th year of teaching.
Before becoming a teacher, I wanted to be a graphic designer. I got a great position at The Hutchinson News, decided it wasn't for me, and went back to school to be a teacher. (My mom was a teacher and my dad was a substitute teacher. My mom always said I should pursue something besides teaching, but as it turns out, it was my calling!)
