Location Hugo, Minnesota, United States
Introduction This fall, I start my seventeenth year in education. I have the honor of being the IB PYP Coordinator and Literacy Specialist at Elizabeth Hall Elementary World School in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It must be said, that I love getting up and going to work everyday! What a blessing to be able to do what I am passionate about five days a week. In order for you to truly know "A Little About Me," I have the amazing honor and calling to be a mom to Hailey and Ezzie. They are by far the BEST gift that I have ever gotten. They teach me each and every day what it means to truly be a family and unconditionally love through thick and thin. When I am not at school or working on school "stuff", I love to do anything with my kids as long as I can take pictures and create memories. I love to read, write, run, drink coffee, scrapbook (when I have time), travel, watch a hockey game, and most importantly spend time with our amazing family and friends!
Interests I love to exercise (especially running, lately), reading, writing, scrapbooking, spending time with family and friends, traveling, taking pictures, and last but not least, doing anything with Hailey and Ezzie B
