I am married to a man who always tries to see the glass as half-full rather than half-empty. While I think this is a great theory, and I try my hardest to subscribe to it myself, there are just sometimes you need to moan and groan! For instance...yesterday I was telling him how sad I was because my First Grade class was not going to get to take another field trip this year because the Central Office has pulled all the transportation money for the rest of the year due to proration. (While I understand this, it still makes me sad!) This is what he tells me..."Well, aren't you glad they took away field trips instead of someone's job?" Now come on people!!! Can't I be sad for one little minute for my First Graders instead of being happy that Bubba the Bus Driver still has a job?!
I wear many hats, but the ones I am most proud of are wife, mom, and teacher. I am married to my college sweetheart and the best man ever, Randy, and we have 2 beautiful children, Caitlin and Harrison. We are so blessed by God and try very hard to give back to our community. I teach first grade to some of the best students in the world. Some days I feel like I'm going crazy, but with God's help, I know I can make it!
