The relationships! I love collaborating with my fellow teachers and being able to be silly with my middle school students. : )
So many! I LOVE children's literature too, so enjoying reading lots with my daughter.
Here are some recent books I enjoyed:Becoming by Michelle ObamaOlive Kitteridge by Elizabeth StroutGirl in Translation by Jean KwokSecrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner
With a 2 year-old daughter, most of my free time goes to family time with her, my husband Ben, and my dog Wendell. We try to be outside as much as possible! Hiking, snowshoeing, hanging with our friendly neighbors, etc. I also enjoy lap swimming and yoga.
I was born and raised in Louisville, KY so come the first Saturday in May, you will find me celebrating the Kentucky Derby! ("Best 2 minutes in sports!")
PGA is more than a school! It truly feels like extended family and I love that we are small and have all grade levels. It's fun to see kindergartners and seniors walking by my classroom.
" 'Stuckness' is simply reluctance to take the next step. Cut your next step in half. Then cut each half in half. Make the next step as small as you can. Then TAKE it." ~ Martha Beck
