1. I teach literacy classes at a university. Just over a year ago, I finished my master's in Literacy Instruction, quit my full-time position teaching fourth grade in order to teach at the university and be able to have a more flexible schedule. I only teach online, so I'm able to create my own schedule almost completely (it's amazing!). Other than teaching online, I fill my working time with TpT, subbing, and this year I'm actually going to be teaching P.E. a few afternoons a week. It's fun to try new things.
2. I taught grades 1-8 in one room for four years. Think of it as a modern-day Little House on the Prairie. In this small private school, I taught all grades (with the help of a teacher's aide), as well as did the job of a principal, janitor, librarian, etc. :) These small schools are a unique and different environment than a larger school, but allow for a great amount of differentiation since most students are in a different grade already. It's a lot of work, but a great experience.
3. My husband and I spend as much time as possible on our boat. We enjoy all sorts of water sports - mostly wakeboarding. My dream is to one day live on a lake. There's a beautiful property that I'm eyeing right now, so I'm slowly saving my pennies!
