Here’s a post to let you know a little bit more about me. I feel like reading our profile alone does not give you a real picture of us. My job, first and foremost, is being Mom to 9-year-old Colby. He is the absolute joy and love of my life, and I cannot wait to double my joy and love with another son or daughter. When I am not at home being a mom, I teach third graders. I am now in my 19th year of teaching, and I am fortunate to teach in the school that is right in our neighborhood. I love it when I see my students in the neighborhood, and I especially love it when they accidentally call me Mom. I would say I am fairly demanding, but I also love cutting up with my students as well. Colby goes to school with me and is in the fourth grade. Having him with me maximizes my time with him. Although I do have to work and really would love to just be a stay-at-home Mom, I feel that I have the kind of job that gives me the best of both worlds. It is easy for me to take off when needed, and I have spring/winter breaks and all of summer to spend with Colby and our future son or daughter.
