I have been teaching for ten years, the majority in 3rd grade, which is my favorite (both as a teacher and a student!). I am originally from Columbus, Ohio and went to Ohio State (Go Buckeyes!!) and Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City. My husband, daughter, and I live with our large and lovable chocolate lab in Lafayette and my hobbies include blogging, CrossFit, cooking, and walking around Waneka in the evenings (minus the mosquitos!).
