I am an elementary school teacher for the 4th and 5th grades. I teach a combined class of around 20 students for all subjects. This can be complicated, but it works out. My husband helps me as my aide half a day in the morning during the school year. I teach art each Friday - I like doing simple crafts with my class. Next school year I hope goes smoothly and that we are able to resume class. I missed my in person class- it is not the same doing packets and computer lessons!
Mom of 4, 3 girls and one boy. (Ages 6, 9, 11, 14) Kids keep me busy with their activities which include dance, music, tae Kwon do, and horseback riding.
This past year I had a kindergartener, an elementary student, a middle schooler, and a high school student! The three youngest are at the same school as my husband and I.
Love the beach, sea turtles, Siamese cats, min pins, and vintage glass.
Lutheran Pastor wife. Our church has restarted our services but my husband still records his sermons and puts them on Facebook and YouTube as not all are ready to resume attending due to health concerns.
Enjoy beachcombing, metal detecting, thrifting, foraging, baking, writing, paper crafts, and reading.
Galveston area original hometown now a NOLA (New Orleans, LA) girl.
Always keeping busy. Sometimes too busy. My house is frequently a mess. I try.
Have a thing for jadite glass and beach glass. Love colored glass and art glass, not a fan of clear glass.
Like nautical and Victorian decor.
My classroom is beach themed so I feel home away from home.
I have a pet red eared slider turtle named Hawk.
We have 7 cats. Two are Siamese. Two are black. One is a tortoiseshell, one is a tabby, and one is black and white. The oldest one, my first Siamese, is 19. The youngest is also a Siamese.
We also have 4 dogs. Two I inherited from my grandma. The inherited dogs are a min pin and a long haired chihuahua and my other 2 are a jack tsu and a spaniel.
