Happy Holidays to everyone! I have not posted in a loooong time. But I'm back and I hope I can be a better blogger. Here are some of the Christmas card designs I came up with this year. I had my annual card party for my friends at work. This year the theme was "Semi-homemade cards". I used cards that I got on clearance last year and we embellished them. Sometimes I covered the entire front of the card, but the sentiment inside and the envelopes were already done!
I have a degree in Child Development and have been teaching for 25 years. Most of these years have been spent with second graders with the exception of 4 years in first grade. I love introducing my students to the joy of reading "chapter books" and the language of literature.
I am a mixed-media artist and am lucky to be teaching at a fine arts magnet school. I use music and visual art every day in my classroom.
I have been married for 29 years and my husband teaches High School English. I have raised 4 wonderful kids and am still working on the yellow labs that live in our house.
