That's me and one of my 2 cats in my avatar:
I am a bilingual education teacher in the Chicagoland area who is new to blogging as of July 2014. I will be moving back into the classroom to teach some yummy little bilingüe first-graders after many years of working as a resource specialist. I look forward to the challenge of being a classroom teacher again after almost 10 years, and I am excited to meet my little ones!
Three random facts about me:
1. I am a music fanatic! In a former life I worked music retail for a big chain store that exists now only in my memory. It was a blast getting to talk about music, play whatever I wanted on the overhead, and have unlimited amounts of caffeine from the café that was next to the music department! Work all day, party all night, rinse, repeat. But now I am a grown-up, those days are past.
2. I came back to teach in my community. When I was growing up, I wanted to get out of dodge and see the world! Turns out, I can do the most good right here at home. So I came back and became a teacher.
3. I am a wicked stepmother, minus the wicked part. I have 2 fabulous girls in my life who keep me busy when I am not teaching. This summer I am around to love them 24/7.
And now here's a silly picture of me:
