My Teacher Story {Linky Party}


Frogs and Cupcakes is hosting "My Teacher Story" link party... 

    
     My teacher story begins about seven years ago. For eleven years, I had worked for Publix (supermaket company in the southeast). I made great money (way more there than as a teacher!). My husband was also a manager for the same company and while money was good, the hours were crazy! Along came our daughter Madison, and I decided to take some time off and stay home with her. I stayed home from age 1 until she started kindergarten. I had all intentions on going back to Publix when she started first grade, but then I started volunteering. Volunteering led to subbing and subbing led to teaching. My degree is in business, but a local college had a summer program that led to professional certification for non-education majors. I have taught ESE self-contained, ESE resource, Kindergarten (my favorite grade!), and now Science (my favorite subject other than reading!). Although growing up, I never wanted to become a teacher, now I could never see myself doing anything else! I love teaching! If I won the lottery, I would still teach!  I feel blessed that I wake up every morning, excited to go to work. :)

  1. Hi,
    I am your newest follower. I LOVE your blog. Teaching only science all day would be a dream come true for me! I can't wait to take a look around your blog for inspiration for my 4th & 5th grade science students.
