About Me


Thanks for stopping by my blog! Here you will see the blog from my practicum and finished projects from my Ed Tech classes at Western Kentucky University. Please leave some feedback!

I was a classroom teacher for 19 years. When our school librarian retired this summer, I became the librarian for both the k-5 and the 6-12 libraries at my small k-12 school. I taught 2nd grade one year, 5th grade for eight years, 7th & 8th grade math and 9th & 10th grade algebra. The majority of the last 10 years have been in 7th grade. I am a self professed nerd and book lover. Even as a math teacher, I had over 2,300 books in my classroom library and love recommending and talking books with kids. At my school I am on the Teacher Advisory council, on the School Leadership committee, a PLC leader and one of the Promethean troubleshooters.

I love Doctor Who and Sherlock and I am quite obsessed with the Harry Potter series. I got on the Potter bandwagon about the time the 4th book came out. I had just finished the third one and had to borrow a copy of Goblet of Fire from one of my fifth grade students. I love Harry so much that my son’s first birthday had a little HP influence.

I currently live in a tiny town in Tennessee you’ve never heard of with my husband, one and a half year old son, and two cats. 2014 was a big year for me. I celebrated the birth of my first child, my 20th wedding anniversary and my 40th birthday! Oliver was quite a surprise to everyone (including his parents), and brings so much joy to everyone he meets.

I love to travel and visited Dublin, London, and Paris this summer. The highlight of my trip was touring the Warner Bros studios in London (where Harry Potter was filmed)!

I love young adult novels and want to believe in magic, elves, and fairies.
