Hello, everyone! It’s been a few weeks since I did a “5 on Friday”, so I thought I would help you get to know me a little bit better. I am a bit “anonymous” on my blog as you know, so I think I can open up a little . . . if you are interested!
1. To start, I started teaching in 1991 (gasp!) and have taught grades 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 with the greatest chunk of that time in 4th. I love their perfect (well . . . almost) balance of innocence and independence, and I love being able to help push them toward that next level of maturity. Sometimes.
2. I am the mom of two boys, husband of one boy, slave to one male cat. We have a definite shortage of estrogen at our house. My older son is into sports, music, and more and is too smart for his own good. My younger son is severely autistic. He is nonverbal, self-injurious, and our struggles with him are now entering their 12th year. I try to keep a positive spirit, but as those of you who are parents know, watching your child suffer is a terrible burden to bear.
3. I am addicted to pizza. It is absolutely my favorite food. I keep thinking I will get sick of it–but, sadly, no. I eat a piece of pizza nearly every day for lunch. Am I proud of this? Not so much.
